if it's "very cheap" it's an instant purchase. similar to an original 777 or 77FP but with a wizard neck.. glen

WRat, is it the one from 4sound-Åkesson Musik in Visby from the Vendolin site?
I had my eyes in that one but decided to let it slip. Looks nice tho.


http://www.jemsite.com/ads/price.htm#pricing says $650 to $975

So the price is about right

Uh... sorry... The Jem RB does not have a wizard neck. Its quite hefty for an Ibanez. I have both a Wizard neck RG and the Jem RB and the Jem has a very different profile.

Re: ibanez jem rootbeer



you can chalk that up to production variation... it's a wizard neck circa late '80s.. glen

Re: ibanez jem rootbeer

I have both a 89' - FP & 87' - RB , the both play the same, you just do not get the vine or pryamid inlays.

If you can find one cheap you sould grab it right away.
