2010 Jem 7vwh now with lo pro edge

On e-bay 180488210523 from Japan they say this is the new Jem 7vwh with *original Edge [edit]. What do you think?
N.B. the humbuckers have no Dimarzio stamp engraved.

The Jem 505wh e-bay 170466061178 uses the same. Using up old stocks? It should've had Evos to be called a Jem. Is this the same shape as the Jem 555 slightly different from the 7v as its wider? And why basswood - its got little mid range for the higher end. You think the maple f/b will compensate for it?

I don't see any mention of Lo Pro Edge... but the change back to the original Edge was officially announced at NAMM. http://www.ibanez.com/ElectricGuitars/model-JEM7V

Re: 2010 Jem 7vwh now with lo pro edge

The only mention I see of the Lo-Pro Edge is their statement that the Jem doesn't use it anymore. The pics on both clearly show original Edges.

And I am confused about the comment about it being wider....

As for why it is basswood, there could be any number of reasons, including cost, or the want to go back to the original wood combo.

the 7v does have dimarzio stamped on the pickups, its just hard to see.

Re: 2010 Jem 7vwh now with lo pro edge

Sorry I did mean original edge instead.
I dont see Dimarzio on the humbuckers - only the single (DSP1) which isnt on the Dimarzio site either. I wonder if this is a 4pole single at last? There's a different wiring diagram on the VX91 for that already. Hard to find the 2pole diagram but I got it now.

The Jem555 pickguard is a different shape to Jem7v so I assume the 505 is of the same style of a wider body?

The new FP2 also uses original Edge and basswood and it looks like the original neck joint - not the AANJ.
With its Evo2 it almost the same as my updated 7RB but I put a Edge Pro on it & routed.
I dont see the advantage of original Edge unless its cost as you say. The screws eventually all work loose and rattle alot!

There are currently 2 basswood models in production 77vbk and 77 FP2 only the 7vwh is alder.
All new Jems produced in 2010 have the original Edge trem... Of course take care not to get a 2009 model, as they would have EPs and guess they will be in stock for quite some time at many stores...

Re: 2010 Jem 7vwh now with lo pro edge

I prefer the lo-pro edge tbh, and I recently got a new set of PAF Pro's for my FP and they don't have Dimarzio stamped on them. Some pickups sound different depending on which way up you put them, so writing on them would make it look wrong if you happen to turn t upside down. I believe that's the reason anyhow.

I need an Evo Jem methinks.
