Jem Heels

what's the deal with the square heels on Jems. are all of them that way? any reason for this, i.e. the RG range now produced has the rounded heel.

just wondering

Re: Jem Heels

the newer JEMS dont have it. i think they started putting the AANJ on when the 7vwh came out. and everything after (accept the FP2 and the UV77RE) had it as well.

Re: Jem Heels

Yeah, all the current JEMS except for the FP2 and the UV77RE have the AANJ. All jams made after the 7vwh, except for florals.

Hey "nephew"--1987 MX2 Maxxas was the first to feature the AANJ. Here's some great info on the AANJ:

Re: Jem Heels

thanks! I guess I got confused by some other thread.

btw, I had to look up AANJ. first hit: Art Administration of New Jersey....ummm nope that's probably not it...second: All Access Neck Joint.. aha!



edit: well if I had just refreshed the thread before posting.....

Re: Jem Heels

oh yes, and why not on the florals? is that just to make it easier to finish the guitar or something?

No--the Florals came out when Jems still had a square heel and scallop.
