Re: Jem7 PBk

I think the BSB is a rarer model. I probably wouldn't trade.

Re: Jem7 PBk

If you like it more, than it worth it.

The prices are more or less the same on the secondary market.

I would keep the BSB, but i prefer the blue

Remember the PBK has a thinner neck.

Re: Jem7 PBk

I would take the PBK if it was in decent condition. I don't care for the BSBs and the stain wears off of them quite badly.

Indeed, rediculously thin, and it was the thinnest neck Ibanez made at the time (probably to this day). Practically a fretboard with a bit of maple stuck to it. Great for headstock dive bombs... in fact, if you got hold of the Trem and the headstock, I bet you could get the Rolf Harris Wobble Board effect out of it! (anyone outside Brit/Aussie high class culture, check out "Tie Me kangaroo Down" on youtube or something)

Thank you !! That's very good information. Just one more question. Does the years of age will effect the quality of it .

Re: Jem7 PBk

They are not pseudo! The original monkey grips are closer to the RB/PBK grips than the 7/77/777 grips. The 7 series grips are more like chimp grips!
