Re: Jem 7 String

Another member here invited me to his house. He has one. Amazing guitar. Beautiful instrument. The neck feels great, especially the scalloped frets. 24th fret on the 1st string just seemed to ring out forever. Its what really got me wanting an alder body guitar.

Re: Jem 7 String

^^^ Apollo, don't take for granted that alder equals sustain. It has to be more than that for a guitar to sustain.

Re: Jem 7 String

A local guitar store has one that I have played quite a few times. It's a fantastic guitar that is easy to play and hard to put down! The problem is Ibanez has a number of other MIJ 7 string guitars with Lo Pro Edge 7 bridges at a significantly lower price. Also, if you are a Jem collector/aficionado, do you want a 7 string Jem? If you are a Universe collector, do you want a 7 string Jem? My guess is more than a few people are not sure what to make of this guitar and do not want to spend $3300 MAP to find out what its all about. Personally, I think its one of the better 7 string guitars on the market. However, there are a few 7 string guitars that I think are of equal quality, if not better, below the $3300 MAP price which makes the 7V7WH a hard sell. With that said, if you can afford one, you will not be disappointed!
