first ibanez guitar

I've never owned an Ibanez. I was just browsing and the JEM777 caught my eye. I don't know much about JEM's or Ibanez guitars for that matter. However something tells me 777's are rare. Any advice, information (counterfeits, ways not to get ripped off, where to buy, etc.)? I'm completely new to Ibanez.

Re: first ibanez guitar

They're fairly rare, especially ones in mint condition. There was a few colours including Loch Ness Green ( LNG ), Shocking Pink ( SK ) and Desert Yellow ( DY ). There's usually a few on ****, and there's quite a few on the 'advertisment' section of this forum, were I very much doubt you'll get ripped off. If you go on the JEM/Universe section of this website you should be able to find info on them. I hope this helps.

Also, check Rich's webiste at www.Ibanezrules.com to see if he can help you. You will not have to worry about getting ripped off there. There was one DY for sale but it's on hold now. You may want to ask him if he has one lurking around his place that's not up on the website. Good Luck!

Re: first ibanez guitar

keep reading threads in this section and you should be able to answer most questions you have.
some of the 777's are more rare than others (LNG being fairly hard to come by as it was produced in lower #'s than others). since most 777's haven't been made in awhile, they are getting more scarce and alot of people to seem to be holding onto theirs but with some patience you can find most models.
i like my VBK which was made in large numbers so they are out there but seeing as the stopped production in '93 condition becomes the question. mines fairly knicked and used (getting close to a fretdress or level but not a refret yet) but it has character and i love the playability and tone i get from it.

Advice and info...hmmm, well they are awesome guitars. Play great, sound great, and cost depends of course on rarity and condition. Loch Ness Green are rare, hand numbered and signed, yeah, just start browsing around here, you will find out all you need to know.
