Re: 2007 - 20th Anniversary Jem?

I just don't get why you get annoyed by it. If you don't like the idea, don't buy the guitar.

I didn't get the "90th" thing either, but the 100 is a company milestone. And if you expect Ibanez to not do special signature models, I have a feeling you're going to be even more annoyed.

Re: 2007 - 20th Anniversary Jem?

I don't understand the 90th either, they probably just needed to create something new to try to get sales. However, if there was a 90th, there definately should be a 100th! It is an important anniversary for a company.

Who cares what the 90HAM stood for, it's a great guitar. Likewise for any potential 100HAM 20th Jem etc. etc. etc.

Re: 2007 - 20th Anniversary Jem?

I'm not saying that it is a bad guitar, but why 90 years? Why not have a anniversary model every year than, 91, 92, 93.... yrs.? It's an arbitrary number, seems to be anyway, unless there is some significance to Hoshino.

Re: 2007 - 20th Anniversary Jem?

First off, I believe the HAM models were made to commerate the 90th anniversary of the parent company of Ibanez which is of course The Hoshino Gakki group. It's not the anniversary of Ibanez, Hoshino started out as a book store, if I'm not wrong it was only until the early 1970s that Hoshino purchased rights to selling guitars under the name Ibanez, which was a Spanish brand prior to that.

So please don't get all excited if they released a 100th model, it's not like they've been making guitars for a hundred years or something.

Wait till 2070 and see whether we're still around then.

Re: 2007 - 20th Anniversary Jem?

That's all fine, still 90 years, just wait 10 more years for 100?! Anyway, I hope by 2070 I'll finally be a good guitar player!!!

Re: 2007 - 20th Anniversary Jem?

I'm personally in favour of each and every anniversary model they can think of

I've not really been happy with the guitar market for a while (I LOVE the JS1200 though) so I'm happy to see my favourite guitars get a revamp on the woods and cosmetics It's the only way we seem to be able to get non-boring finishes on the JEM these days

The JEM10 is imho as cool as guitars can get. The JEM90 was almost as good, the JS10th a fantastic idea, the JS90 fantastic.

I can't wait to see what other treats we get

I've started advertising myself! Ok I might only get 3 dollars but thats a start ;-)

I just hope this one is going to be special, I want Vai's natural bodied JEM with the while pickups and gold hardware it looks awesome when Mike plays it live (drool)

Re: 2007 - 20th Anniversary Jem?

yeah, but who said it has to be fancy :P? No, I know what you mean. I really would love to see them put good old Neville into production though, I'd buy it in a second. It's like a BSB and a VWH meet but without the scorched wood and the blue.

Re: 2007 - 20th Anniversary Jem?

Well, this is going to have me twitchin..... I really should be saving my money now,,, because if it's actually cool and not some "smoke and mirror DBK mod", I really don't want to have to sell my Rgs and Conklin to get one....
I love the excitement though,,, just hoping it's well thought out and super cool, and for the love of god,,,don't make it a 5K plus collectors peice.

Talking Re: 2007 - 20th Anniversary Jem?

I tell you what, I am getting very excited over the 20th! I hope we won't be disappointed. I hope it is over-the-top! The 10th is beautiful & classy, I hope the 20th is crazy. We need a swirl with a crazy inlay. If not a swirl, how about a rich bright color. I'm getting ready to order a PRS Artist, I'm wondering if I should save for the 20th.
