Re: JEM70V SFG

I liked the premiums. Plus, that guitar has more than Jem 555 or 505s.

I also like good old fender colors but i'd rather to see sonic blue or daphne blue jem

Like this;

I know weve all been complaining about the lack of colors apart from black and white but cyan/green... Really!

looks kool but looks like a fake one, IMHO.
Would be great a MIJ version with maple fretboard, though.

Seems much like a chibanez, hm, bro?

Personally, i really like 50s fender colors so that i liked. But tortoise pickguard may help to overcome that chibanez appearance, IMO.

Re: JEM70V SFG

I think it's a nice foundation for some extra colors.

Re: JEM70V SFG

I think it is awesome. It will accompany my alder bodied Herc nicely.

It's the dog's nuts. I'd have to sit down and play one but visually my favorite Jem ever. Looks like the high frets are scalloped too.

Re: JEM70V SFG

Just not getting the colour - then again, i play an FP2 so what do i know? ;-)

Very important Ibanez can provide some choice for the customer though as there'll be plenty who will like it. I applaud that..

Re: JEM70V SFG

It may be one of those guitars that looks better in the flesh - here is hoping.
However, if the price is right I may have one on order as soon as they are available.
