I dig it quite a bit...Although I would be more pleased with it on "Floyd" equipped JEM!

I don't like it, I think it should've been put elsewhere on that axe.

+1, it would've been nice if it replaced the usual cursive JEM logo at the headstock

Re: new JEM logo: like it or not?

I didn't like it before, in part because Vai's name was put up in front of what seemed (and turned out) to be planet Earth. I really didn't know what to make of that. But it turned out to have something to do with better wood choices for manufacturing guitars, by Ibanez. That makes it suck less, but it still sucks. lol I mean, like someone said in another thread; it makes it look like a toy.

But it doesn't matter much. Because even without the logo it would still be a missed opportunity, I feel.

It's ugly and the globe isn't even down the centre of the body.

I think I would have preferred it more if it was the same mother-of-pearl pyramid that they use on the Universe guitar.

I could live with a vai logo, but what's with the globe... naaah. not for me.

I really don't care....
...but our Australian friends should be happy that it at least portrays a more accurate scale of the size of their country.

People...

If you don't like it, use sandpaper, and stop complaining. And yes, it's a hardtail JEM, get over it. Not everything with six strings needs a double locking trem system.

This is a thread about whether you like the logo or not, and you are complaining about people complaining about the logo?

I want to complain about you complaining about people complaining about the logo (which I think is ugly).

Rock on!

I don't think the design of the logo is well balanced. There's no visible I to balance the V... from what I remember.

Re: new JEM logo: like it or not?

It makes the guitar look cheap and nasty. Maybe better suited to a Fisher Price toy guitar
