Question A Jem 7VWH 2002, with ebony fretboard and... Edge Pro? Is it legit?

Hey guys,

As far as I know, the 2002 7VWH has the Lo Pro Edge tremolo. I found, however, a guy who is selling a 2002 with ebony fretboard and Edge Pro bridge (I'm talking to him, but I'm afraid). Is there a chance that this guitar has been modded?

I also found strange that he said "the previous owner bought it in Japan, and it didn't come with a hardcase, but rather an Ibanez bag". Can this be real?

Finally, if it's original, does this guitar qualify on the "good production year" of 2002, since it's probably one of the first ones with the Edge Pro?

Pics of his guitar:







Thanks.

That's a correct Edge Pro rout. It's be a 2003 built in late 2002, so it'll have a serial number in the 30,000's.

Thanks for the info, Rich.

So this guitar is, basically, a 2003, then it's not part of the "nice 2002" ones, correct?

It's as nice as an 02', technically it's built in 02', it's just Edge Pro.

+1 to what Rich said. That's an Edge-Pro, not a Lo-pro Edge. Very different bridges.

Lo-Pro Edge



Edge Pro

Maybe I'm overthinking, but I'm guessing that being one of the first Edge Pro ones made, it may not be so refined as the later ones.

Early EP's were a mess at radius match, many saddles broke, depending on the batch some wouldn't even fine tune the big wound strings. I was assuming he was talking about the overall build quality of the guitar itself.

Both things, actually... but yes, I could imagine that first batches would have such imperfections...
Thanks for the great input, Rich.

Bumping this thread for one more question...

Is there a way I can spot this mismatched radius only by pictures?
