#1. I think it's hard to tell that much from the vid.

#2. I think it's a freakin Awesome!!! The swirl 3d concept with lights, and neon colors, mystical and futuristic Images!

#3. Even the DNA which is now praised.... was bashed in the beginning.

Re: 20th Anniversary Jem In Action!

Its childish and all i ever see on here about Ibanez guitars is moaning about em. If thats the case, buy a bloody Fender, then you'll moan .
And yes the response was predictable, very predictable.
The thread title is "20th anniversary Jem in action", not "take a look at this POS".

Mattsmusic, i wouldnt bother next time mate.

Re: 20th Anniversary Jem In Action!

I'd have to see it in real life or a decent HQ video to pass judgement on it.
Question is, how will an acryllic JEM sound?

Meh, I like it. I'd buy one if only it didn't cost 2 months' pay.

We'll never know because they will never be played.

Re: 20th Anniversary Jem In Action!

It's hard to tell from the video but are the pickups and controls pink, green and yellow? If so, nice nod to the original 3 Jems.

Re: 20th Anniversary Jem In Action!

As others have said (paraphrasing): "It's got to look better in person."

I think it's a cool idea, but I'm not crazy about the color scheme. Also, I'm extremely skeptical about the tone considering the body materials. However, if this is meant to be a form over function piece of art, that is it.

Re: 20th Anniversary Jem In Action!

The negative reaction here reminds me of the reactions about the original neon-colored Jems. Now everyone BUT CID THE GIRL wants one.

I love this guitar. Sure, it's bling. So what? It's cool. Hope I can afford one.

Not me, you should edit that to "Everyone but Cid wants one", or else I'll sue for slander and defamation of character. I dont want my wife to read that and think Im a girl

AND the VSBL and now the BRMR seems to be growing in popularity

It looks like it could look pretty cool......

We just need to see some real pics of this thing!

What's MOST important to me is its playability. I won't buy a guitar I can't play (even an anniversary model)
