JEM777 Reissue 30th Anniversary

HI Guys/Girls,

Just joined the site as I was after some info, I'm from the UK and been out of playing guitar for a long time while I built my business up (I had to sell all my guitars and toys to start business) so not up with newer stuff so looking for advice.

So after looking around I noticed that there is a new Jem777 reissue coming out/is out, and that here in the uk its £3049, thinking it was a no brainer I have pre-ordered one, just wanted to know I've made a sound choice as I am going to have to wait a long time for it to come in I've been told.

I mean I'm not stupid its expensive, but I had several guitars before and tbh I just want one great guitar that when I pick up i will always enjoy its sound and feel, I intend to play it allot and tbh it won't go back into its case that often

So have I made a good choice or should have I gone for an original or even an older JEM that is proven but has some mileage under its belt

Interested to know what peoples thoughts are on the matter.

Personally, do i like the look and style, yes so Its already a done deal in my head, was what I always wanted

Well I wish i was gettin one, so i'm envious!

To me i'd rather have a new guitar than an old one, i feel like less can go wrong. The necks seem stronger, hardware is probably machined better/no corrosion, Evo's are more fun imo, etc. I think Ibanez hit it out of the park with this reissue. Hope you have fun with yours!

I do prefer the old Originals.

Why? There are too many differences between them and the Anniversarys. If Ibanez had made 1:1 Reissues I would prefer the new ones.

Totally agree, its a copy, fake, imitation, however it will make me very happy and I will enjoy it for many years to come.. so in that respects as it will be the one I own, it will be the best

Re: JEM777 Reissue 30th Anniversary

I have a hard time finding new Ibanez guitars that have the same build quality and wood quality as older Ibanez guitars.

I've only bought two newer Ibanez guitars (Japanese) that have really high quality wood and setups; my FP2 is one of them.
But, it had the Rich treatment before I got it so who knows what it played like before that.

The other guitar is my JEM7V.
Now this was made like it came through time from the golden age of UVs, 90-92.
This thing plays like no other UV I've ever picked up!
The neck wood and finish on the neck have the highest quality I could ask for!
This is a KILLER instrument!
It looks so beautiful too!
