Going to order a new JEM7VSBL...any thoughts??

I'm going to be purchasing a new Ibanez JEM7VSBL..The blue guitar with the blue neck inlays. I'm getting it for a tad over 1,600.00$ brand new shipped from Ibanez. I was wondering if anyone owned this guitar and what their thoughts were on it...

Thanks,
Aaron

That's where the problem lies. I'm getting it ordered brand new threw a music store. 500.00$ down and 100.00$ monthly payments. I don't have 1,600.00$ cold cash.

Great guitar.
Too similar to the 7VWH (fretboard is ebony as oposite to rosewood) for us hardcore fans to get excited about, and the 7VWH has been SSV main player for close to 9 years now, but otherwise it's an impressive guitar.

I will probably pick up one of those when (or rather IF) I get tired of the 7VWH.

The only thing I wish it had different would be the pickup colors. Like, a multi-colored thing would be cool. Like on the humbuckers have one blue and one white. Or both neck and bridge pickups blue and the center white. I think all 3 pickups would look cool in blue too.

I'll probably be ordering it next week sometime. Do you know how long it's been in production, or how many they'll make?? I REALLY don't want to miss out on getting this guitar. This is one of the few JEM's I REALLY want to have. Though they're all nice, this one just stands out to me more.

I just got mine a few days ago, the VSBL looks better in person than in the pics. The blue/green vine looks great. I agree with most of the forum, the pickguard could be more original. I'm hoping to get a sweet blue swirl pickguard for mine. Good luck, you will love it!

Sure, send me the total amount down and I'll take it

I toyed with the idea of taking payments on new guitars, had a guy talk me into it. Was supposed to send the first $250, never heard from him, which is why the clear and resounding, NO!

Rich, That's cool. I can understand the distress.

I hope the don't stop until Jan or Feb on production...I really want to get this guitar. But, I'll probably order it sometime next weekend.

sooooo excited.

I played around with photoshop and simulated putting a pearly pickguard on it (like on the 7vwh) and a blue pickup cover on the middle PU.

I think it looked much better (it already looks good but it added more flare).

I will try to post the picture on my page and link to it.
