Looks to be a reliced EVO copy. Certainly won't be parting with any of my money for one of those.

Re: Jem Evo 25th

I wonder how limited it's going to be... I doubt they will make more that 50 of them. But hell, major GAS!

Re: Jem Evo 25th

i'd love to see faded yellowed body with mintywhity headstock, like the original EVO.

The vintage/relic look does not seem to have a lot of popularity in the Ibanez community. We seem to want everything to be mint.

I'm actually really glad that there were no neon reissues, after all the trouble I've gone through to get a nice LNG an SK.

Re: Jem Evo 25th

I hope it comes with the huge crack in the body. If not, it's just a cheap imitation.

Re: Jem Evo 25th

I actually got both my SK and LNG from a guy who was selling them off to buy one of these:

http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Elec...ul-Goldie.aspx

I think he said he was paying over $7000 for it. His reasoning (aside from being a huge Les Paul fan), was that he was too afraid to play that SK and the LNG, because he was worried about getting any dings in them. He felt that with this guitar, it's already slightly beat up, so any additional dings wouldn't bother him.
