20th Anniversary Jem In Action!

Watch the guitar in action and then email, call or PM me if interested. I have no solid pricing as of yet, but this is going to be a rare guitar and it will be difficult to get. It's hard to tell by the video, but each guitar has it's own unique multi color swirl pattern inside the body and they're all done by hand. Pull the tone knob and LED's illuminate the body.

Enjoy!

*** EDIT: I've removed the video due to its low quality, clearly it's creating more confusion than anything else. Though I've not seen the guitar in person I'm told it's amazing looking and sounding, in typical JEM fashion. ***

Re: 20th Anniversary Jem In Action!

Thats the best Ibanez could come up with? Im sure it will sell like crazy and go up in value, but personally I'm disappointed with it.

Re: 20th Anniversary Jem In Action!

ELCID, I quite agree. Making an annivesay JEM model 90% based on an the JS Crista Planet makes the excitment behind what it could (should ?) have been.The green vines in the body may however be interesting in person if they are intended to create some kind of swirl effect in the transparent body. The vine inaly could also have been more exciting.

Re: 20th Anniversary Jem In Action!

How much are they going to cost?? I wonder if it sounds good, or if it sounds like crap, Don't acrylic guitars sound like crap??

Re: 20th Anniversary Jem In Action!

I didn't even notice those were vines in the acrylic, looks pretty radical. Although I couldn't really tell much from that video, I'll have to wait for some decent pics or a better vid of it, but it looks interesting. I guess this is as fitting a place as any for my 1777th post

I didnt notice the vines on the body, I just saw it was not flat. I agree that the inlay could have been better. If the big deal about it is it's plastic and lights up I'd just as soon save a few grand and put Christmas lights around a regular Jem. I dont want to say too much negative stuff about the guitar though since it will undoubtedly upset someone and result in a slew of "If you dont like it, dont buy it" responses.

That being said as someone who doesnt like floating trems and has little interest in Jems, I was actaully excited and seriously considering trying to pick up a 20th Anniversay. Luckily for my bank account any interest has been squashed.

Re: 20th Anniversary Jem In Action!

That's actually pretty cool IMO!!! I like the idea of a 3D swirl, and the LEDs are sooo showy; they'll look the nuts in stage!!!

Yikes Matt, I hope you're allowed to post that or you're going to get big smacks from Ibanez.

Re: 20th Anniversary Jem In Action!

Hahaha. Oh god what an ugly ass guitar...


What a waste of an anniversary model.
I hope the only people that buy these are collectors, so that they stay locked away for the next 10 years.

Re: 20th Anniversary Jem In Action!

Although, they could've made something a little less gimmicky, and more playable, classic, and beautiful i.e. the PRS Eagle. Something that's not clearly meant to be stashed and cashed in on in mint cond. a few years later, like the JS 2K. A maple top would've gone down a treat.

Re: 20th Anniversary Jem In Action!

I guess it's neat looking, but not something I would play in front of an audience.
