Sorry to hijack the thread. But I have one more question to add. When I bought my UV I got this black Ibanez Case. I read there have been some probs with the chinese made cases. I flipped my case over and over again and couldnt see where it's made. Is this black case made in China??

Normally (in the U.S. at least) cases are always extra. *There are usually (2) choice:
-M100C molded plastic case
-UV1000C hardshell wood case

Of course, the UV1000C is the preferred and does cost more, but...they both serve the same purpose.

As for obtaining a JEM77PMC, good luck! *They've been discontinued for 10 years, and the only way that you'll find one is if a used one pops up on the market. *Check with Rich at www.ibanezrules.com regularly though...if anybody's going to have one for sale, it'll be him! *

Some of the cases are of low quality. Here's what happened to my Jem90-case:



The case is molded plastic so I guess it's a M100C. This 90 was sold in Europe, thus I didn't get the nice case pictured in the galleries

SalemB, the same thing happened with the case for my sabre. Those feet don't really seem to last very well, which is a shame (and shame on the people making them!!!) Same thing has happened except with all 4 feet

I'd try getting a better case for the guitar if this bothers you, other than that the actual shell can take quite a bit of abuse

Notice the dark structure with a white piece of tape by my thumb? That's my SKB case I had to dig the Ibanez case out of a closet just to get the pic taken.

Anyway, it does bother me. It's a bad move to sell a $3000 guitar without a decent case. I don't know what the European distributors ship the signature models in now, but I hope they'd go for something more worthy of the contents.

That's not SKB, that's the Chinese made M100. Typically what most offshore sig models are sold with. At least with the 90's it was free.

The SKB is the one on the left under the M100.
That's the case I'm using. The M100 is retired.

What happened to SalemB's case is par for the course with those molded plastic cases - i've owned the Ibanez one and the SKB one. *the same thing happened on both.

Either you can can be super super careful with it, or you cn just expect it will happen and not be too bummed out about it when it happens.

You can be just as sure that at some point, something moderately sharp is going to scrape along the edge of your UV1000 case a rip a little of the vinyl/plastic stuff on the outside.

This is why we have cases folks, in case you didn't know. *Beat the crap out of the cases. *They're much cheaper and easily replaceable than the guitars they carry.
