Re: Jem 10th neck with 2 different serial.

Replacement neck made in 99 probably, its never been mounted to a guitar, nor has it ever had any tuners on it, just like the replacement BFP neck I have.. I'm guessing the inlays are like that because it was CNC'd using the generic vine pattern file and I'm betting when the 10ths were made they were made with a different, more precise one.

Re: Jem 10th neck with 2 different serial.

You're all off yer rockers. You think this is any different than any other 10th neck?! The only difference is it's made in 99 instead of 96. I have numbers **847 and 849, this one is 843.

If you're the one that hit the buy it now, pay Max. The time for asking questions was before you bid, not after. It's a replacement 10th neck, exactly as it should be.

Re: Jem 10th neck with 2 different serial.

I'm not doubting its authenticity, but you've probably seen more 10th's than anyone, have you seen sloppy inlay work on other, non replacement 10th necks this bad?

Seeing that the auction is over, anyone have the #, I searched high and low and couldn't find it on both the completed and live auctions.

Re: Jem 10th neck with 2 different serial.

Sorry, I misspoke. All replacement necks have that routing. A production 10 neck has a routing like any other vine, FP, VWH, sloppy, but not that sloppy. But all the 99 necks I've ever seen are just like this. Here are the 2 I have.

If you want a 10th neck, this is it. The only other one [production 10th] that was ever on the market was that one where the guy screwed up stripping his body for a refin and broke it up for parts.

Dude, that's common ebony fisure. "Crack bad" is where you can stick a couple business cards in the gap.

What sense does the different rout make?!

Re: Jem 10th neck with 2 different serial.

I dunno, I'm just trying to think of why the rout on these 3 necks are bigger.

Re: Jem 10th neck with 2 different serial.

Sloppy inlay work? Have the people saying that seen a closeup of a floral neck before?




That's the way it's supposed to look. I think it's actually one of the cool things that separetes the production necks from the knockofff necks.

Re: Jem 10th neck with 2 different serial.

Will add my share in here..

EDIT: The fretboards don't look that ugly in real life. Too much flash, I guess o_O

We were not comparing it to different jem necks, we were comparing it to other Jem 10th necks. We are all aware of the black filler used on the florals.

Re: Jem 10th neck with 2 different serial.

Hi

Why not just ask me - "the seller" of the neck, if its real..........?

The neck is 100% genuine Ibanez - BRAND NEW and never been on a guitar.

I ordered it for a customer who changed his mind - i could of left it with Ibanez but decided to get it in stock - for rarity value........ I was told by Ibanez Japan via Ibanez Uk that it was the last 10th neck they had (how true that is i don't know - but i wouldn't think these were made by the 1000)

I don't sell ANY non-genuine Ibanez parts.

I do, do some custom inlay/fingerboard/neck work - but i would make it CRYSTAL clear to any potential customer that they were buying a reproduction part.

Re: Jem 10th neck with 2 different serial.

PS. Thanks Rich - Quite right. Ask your questions and THEN buy it

Unfortunately Rockerfx bought it on **** and then backed out of the deal - saying it wasn't real........... his loss!!

Ibanez UK must have me as there only parts seller cos i sell lots of fakes - NOT! and my 99.9% bay feedback shows i stiff lots of people and they all leave me neg feedback - NOT!

Anyway, the folks who p1ss me about on **** just get added to my "blocked bidders list" so they can buy there bits elsewhere........ easy!

As for the inlay work - its a genuine Jem 10th neck, made with the same tooling that made the rest...........

Made the other 99' 10th replacement necks, but not the rest of the 10th necks. I think the dope running the CNC put the disc in for the original vine program, the one that cut the crappy routs for the original FP's, etc. Not the tightened up clearences program in use by 96' the production 10th necks were cut with. Further modified again by 2000 when the routs got really tight.
