Jem 7v with Silver hardware

I might be called crazy for this but I have swap out my Jem 7v hardware for both reasons.

1. Chrome hardware are more durable.
2. I actually think it looks better

In anyway, less talk, more pics

97 Jem's Lo-Pro was replaced with a new Edge (Those that come with Jem 70SFG) and the 07 Jem's Edge Pro was replaced with a cosmo black Edge pro that was polished to chrome.

On a side note, my 07 Jem looks more yellow compared to the 07 one....

Yeah, I remember one a long time ago that was done like that. Looks good.

Re: Jem 7v with Silver hardware

I like it. I've got a 7v7 with all Cosmo and I love it. Was never really a fan of the gold. Have you thought about getting chrome pole pieces for the pickups?

Re: Jem 7v with Silver hardware

I do not have plans to change the pole pieces, but I do have intention to change the screws eventually.

Sometimes I feel doing it but each time I watch to the 97 G3 concert I do know that someday I will regret doing that!

Re: Jem 7v with Silver hardware

It looks much better without the gold. Gold is so tacky.

Re: Jem 7v with Silver hardware

Not my cup of tea.
The headstock logo and gold screws mess it up for me.

Re: Jem 7v with Silver hardware

Looks like they both need a good setup and some neck shims. The trems are sucked down into the bodies too far.... But they look cool.

I always thought black hardware looks the best on white. The gold looks too tacky...

Re: Jem 7v with Silver hardware

Can you tell me if the 56mm narrower neck on the early Jem is really noticeable compared to the 58mm neck on your '07 Jem? I have a 2005 Jem, and was considering one of the earlier ones to add to my roster, but was really curious as to how the neck change would affect me. Does it feel really different? I've never played a pre-2005 Ibanez neck. Thanks.
