got my first JEM today!!!!! - a 7DBK

my JEM 7DBK arrived today....and yes I am seriously stoked!

everyone told me that Rich at Ibanez Rules was really cool to deal with, so thats who I went with....and its true: great service, great price, and fast shipping

I have a feeling I'm gonna be playing this guitar night and day, day and night

thanks dude

yeah this is a special guitar...I can really tell just from the quality of construction involved

not sure how much I'm gonna play my RG520 now! I think it's basically gonna sit there and be a backup for if and when I break a string on the 7DBK.....I'm already planning on getting another JEM this winter! lol

yeah I cans ee what y'all have been saying, JEMs are addictive, bigtime

I really appreciate JEMSITE, being able to find out lots of information about various JEMs was super helpful to me in making my decision as to which JEM to get

Hey dude, just so this doesn't sound sugar coated, it did show up with a problem. Unfortunately humans aren't perfect no matter how hard they try. High fret somewhere over half scale. What is important is it's being taken care of tonight so that AJ isn't inconvenienced too much. My apologies again, tis a sad day everytime I have to apologize, at least it isn't often! And many thanks for being so undestanding!

Rich, I was wandering, where do you get your JEMs from? do you get 'em brand new or from a previous owner (I'm talking about the ones on the "new" page)?

They're brand new, but sources are always confidential for obvious reasons.

Congrats, AJ! I'm hoping to pick up my first jem(a B.S.B.) within the month. I keep hearing about "Rich",and "Ibanez Rules". Could someone tell me who this is? Hopefully I'll be getting more jems in the future, and from what i hear, Rich seems like the person to get 'em from. If anyone can give me more info, such as how to get in touch, I'd greatly appreciate it.

well after a trip to my guitar tech's place this 7DBK is playing like a dream come true, better than I even imagined how good it could play, and the sound is fantastic

wow whatta guitar, it's instantly my new #1 guitar...and even more proof to me of Steve Vai's genius

Rich has been totally cool to deal with, I can highly recommend him to anyone. When the guitar showed up still needing a little more TLC and set-up work, Rich offered to pay for shipping back to his place for him to set it up right and then send it back to me, or reimburse me for having my guitar tech do it....I need the guitar for a studio session in two days so I opted to have my Tech do it

I'll definitely be buying more JEM's from Ibanez Rules in the coming months and years (planning on getting a second JEM in December)
