Re: It's quiet here.

I think people are right about FB taking traffic away. It also seemed like there were a lot of posts about the same things over and over. I stopped posting on those threads because the topics have already been discussed in previous threads.

I have pretty much stopped playing Ibanez guitars too. I have been very underwhelmed with the models they have been producing and the price points they are at. For the price of a premium I could get a Kiesel that is 3x the guitar. I am actually going to sell all my other guitars because of how good my Kiesels are. I like being able to choose my specs too.

The jem7vsbl was my dream guitar. I loved the blue color and vine. I played one and It wasn't for me. Fast forward a few years, and I end up getting a Kiesel 7 string Delos in sparkle blue new, for cheaper than I could buy the vsbl used. I couldn't get a vine, but I did get to customize a few options and get a roasted maple neck/fretboard and it is a 7 string.

anyways, I still pop over here from time to time but It is pretty dead.

I admit I have been going to r/Ibanez a lot lately... (I'm sorry Jemsite!)

Re: It's quiet here.

I usually get hits from Google to very old threads. I guess people use other kind of communication methods and not forums as much as they used to...

This is true. Just logged back in after a really long time away (I briefly visited in 2017, but it had probably been six or so years before that that I posted anything in earnest). I think it's that we all consume the internet in different ways now, many of us almost entirely by phone (on which I find forum browsing/posting cumbersome). Not to mention all of the social media platforms that now dominate traffic...Really sad, but Jemsite will always hold a special place in my heart, as it's where I really learned the most about guitars back when I started playing in the mid-2000s. With that said, I hope there are still some familiar faces around here and that everyone is doing well, especially in these precarious times.

Reddit doesn’t help this site, neither does the fact that Vai just canned the JEM as his number one guitar model...

Cool Re: It's quiet here.

Only wanted to say, i am still here. Miss the older times with all that cool guys around and all the activities like Jemfest, regional meetings or raffles. The time, we could enjoy posts from Dave Weiner, Darren Johannson and Steve himself here. Ok. these times are gone. But i am still a Jem Fan !

Cheers !
Wolfgang

I'm not really sure, but it's possible all the cool guys left after I stopped posting and visiting Jemsite? *sarcasm*
