It's got the same hardware as a $750 guitar too. You're paying for the Premium treatment and the heavy upcharge of a signature model.

If it was the right tool it would have the correct 4mm wrench in it.

I mean, at least the wood and pickups are better than a 750$ guitar right?

I'm trying to figure it out with the shop where I bought it because they don't know.

That floral jem has to the worst bang for your buck ever.

You pay $1600 for something that looks and fits like almost as bad as a Jr and has a cheap trem. Just paying for the name and cool design.

Amazing how for $1000 you can get the Genesis which destroys this “Jem” in every category possible.

Now look at premium models. Regular RG premiums cost $800. Do you think the floral pattern, inlay and color, handle cost a lot to make? Nope

You’re literally paying $800 extra for a guitar that is actually $800 worth maybe $1000 with all the jem cosmetics.

Everything else is going directly to Ibanez and Steve pockets.

If you can get it under $1000 I guess, otherwise is too overpriced for what it is.

So much negativity, again. You have comprehensively proven your lack of knowledge before, I suggest you stop criticising. That guitar is worth precisely what people will pay for it. If the owner thinks it is the best guitar in the world for them, it is the best guitar in the world for them.
They sound good, play well, and although as I recall some are less than perfect (same with pretty much any guitar), a good one is a good one.

Im not a fan of vai and didnt know him before buying that guitar. If I knew what I know now I would've bought the genesis but I have something to add. Besides what you like more, there are some aspects in which this jem has to be better. The 5 piece neck (has the genesis that? I dont know really and I want to believe that the wook quality if better), the pickups, the titanium truss rod (which I dont know the difference with others) and well, the look. Besides the bridge, this jem I believe it to be better than a genesis.
