JEM 77FP Replacement neck

Hi All,

My beautiful JEM 77FP (97 model, Signed by Steve Vai) had a nasty fall to the floor and now has a crack just below the back of the headstock and to the locknut bolts.

I've been told by a local dealer here in Cairns, Australia that I can no longer buy a replacement neck from Ibanez for this model.

I find it pretty hard to believe that I can no longer legitimately buy a replacement anymore and understand Ibanez's policy in returning the faulty neck or identifying it's damage legitimacy and am willing to fully comply with this.

Does anyone know if this is really the case?... and if not, a good source to purchase a legitimate neck for this unique model of JEM?

Appreciate any help.

Cheers,
Dylan Nelsson

Hi Dylan,

You can always go find a good luthier and they can fix the neck for you. Maybe that's the best solution for this problem.

Cheers & good luck,

Sam.

any ibanez dealer can send it for you and i believe it has to be the whole guitar.
they charge 600.00 for that neck.

If the joint isn't spreading under tension it's fine. If it is it can be glued, and it'll be just fine. If not I do have 1 new 99' neck left.

Thanks Rich.

The neck is flexing under pressure and I'm currently seeing if a local guitar tech here in Cairns Australia can repair it.

Will the '99 neck fit the '97 model ok?.
Do you have any pictures of the headstock?

Cheers,
Dylan.

I fit a 2004 FP neck onto a '91 body and it was fine
