My design skils are non existing, so I don't think I would have any chance.

Re: will u participate in the JEM Design contest?

I could design one but it wouldn't be anything that would stand out. So my design would just be considered too much a dime dozen by them and therefore it wouldn't be chosen.

Plus I don't have the time.

Re: will u participate in the JEM Design contest?

My problem is that I can't edit the colors on the thing I could download. I use Paint, it's all shades of gray! I got no skills in this what so ever, but I bet it's an easy fix.

Re: will u participate in the JEM Design contest?

What do you have to do in order to participate?? I mean, do you just send your design via email, or is there a procedure??

I'm kinda interested ...

I'd do it, but I don't think anyone would vote for my hardtail Black Jem devoid of a grip...

Re: Will you participate in the JEM Design contest?

I made a submission. I kind of skimmed the rules, and thought it was for the next production JEM. So mine is along the lines of what Ibanez normally makes (very simple) instead of something wild for a one off (or in this case, two-off). Ah well. I just want a grey-blue JEM with matching headstock/inlays and a darker grey pickguard. Almost like the 90th anniversary but without the texture.

I think they'll never pick mine anyway because I specified the original Wizard neck rather than the paper-thin deals they have now.



(decided to post mine because it won't win and if someone steals it, I already submitted ahead of you)

Re: Will you participate in the JEM Design contest?

I voted no, as I'm still not convinced they'll actually build it or follow through with it.

This had a lot to do with it. I guess I could say i just don't care, but that's not really PC, is it?

And I'm sure they mean to do it, they just don't always follow though.

Dude your mental.... Not only is Ibanez stating they will folow through, but Steve Vai is putting his reputation on the line, and made a Video and used his image on the Ibanez website, stating that the competition is happeneing...

So its not just Ibanez, its Vai also who is stating it...

Re: Will you participate in the JEM Design contest?

Didn't Vai also somehow "promote" the 50K Jem comp too? Not saying he did, because I honestly don't know, but from the sound of that thread it certantly gave the impression that he was involved also.

Re: Will you participate in the JEM Design contest?

We can keep this on topic And I am well aware of what Ibanez and Steve have said, I've seen Steve's video about it, etc. Bottom line for me is simply "No". If they do manage to get around to it before something else distracts Steve's attention, judge the thousands and thousands of entrants and actually build some guitars then I really, really hope one of you guys wins That would be cool, no question
