Farmers Market might be known for some. The guitarist is "decent". Check out his accordion playing too.

Here is a link to Hittar Cuesta playing a Greg Howe song. He is popular in South America. He is playing an older FP.

Do you know if the pickups (Black/Pink) from the custom Jam that Justin Hawkins used live are Dimarzio PAF PRO? Thanks

Thanks for resurrecting this old thread... Indeed MAB sounded better with a Jem than ever! The comments for this video say it all... Normally I can appreciate his talent, but can't bear to listen to more than one song.

Holy crap that's the first time I ever thought MAB sounded good, he's always had the workrate of a Lamborghini and the sound of a Vauxhall Nova but here his tone sounds smooth, his vibrato isn't as erratic as usual and sounds more fluid, his fast hard picking style doesn't sound so scratchy... Sound quality on the video might have some effect but he's definitely playing better on that Jem than I think I've ever heard him.

I think the way endorsements work it would be tough. As soon as you get noticed, especially playing an Ibanez, they will offer you the services of the custom shop.

Re: Has any other famous guitarists used a Jem onstage?

Jari Meanppa from Wintersun used one on stage for a loong time before he switched to Daemoness ( and also dropped guitar for stage to be vocal only )
Anybody interested in more extreme metal probably know him since he is a very big name in the metal world but thought I'll share



Here is a closer look to his modified JEM with white EMG 81-85 and an Evertune bridge
