Any PBK owners on Jemsite....?

Are there any PBK owners on Jemsite. these have really grown on me and would love to see some pics and hear some comments about these. Vai seems to play these quite alot.

Great guitars, although it's getting harder to find one now that isn't beaten to death.

If ever Ibanez were to reissue a Jem that would sell well today it'd be the PBK.

Yeah, but then everyone would cry that it's another black guitar

That's why it would sell well. Most of those people complaining aren't the ones paying for the goods are they

I picked one up a few months ago. Plays and sounds amazing but a previous owner thought it would sound better with the body paint sanded down. Now she is at Sims Custom Shop to restore her. Hope to get her back by the end of next month.

Was that the one that went for like $400 or something crazy on e-bay? I was thinking of doing the same thing but the nut had about as much crack as what the previous owner had smoked.

Re: Any PBK owners on Jemsite....?

I almost got one in at age 15 in 1993 when my dad took me to a music store to pick out my first 'good' guitar. I ended up going with an RG for $899 ($705USD). The used PBK they had was $1200 ($941USD).

I just couldn't convince him to spend the extra 300 bucks.

Jup, got one ! Bought for 700 euro's. Certainly not in "as new" condition. But with a lot of elbow grease, it's more than acceptable. It BADLY needs a refret though... But I'm afraid to let anyone touch her

Find someone with a PLEK machine - I had my VDY (same neck as PBK?)refretted with 6100 fretwire and it is now absolutely the best playing JEM I have ever touched!

PLEK machine ...?

(I'm sooo afraid they'd mess up the brilliantly fine, slim neck )

I have always wanted a PBK as an evil twin for my PWH but I ended up getting a UV7BK. I still would love one of those PBK Jems though.
