JEM77FP with AANJ?

hiya

Yesterday i tried out a jem 77fp, in Denmark st. London, and it had an all acces neck joint and was very similar to the 7vsbl, (other than the material differences like pick ups / wood e.t.c) which i also played, the guy there said that they were "new production models" i just wandered what is going on?

Thanks for any input.

P.s. They were great!!!!

Sorry guys, i have no pics! but.... i shall ring ibanez today (if they're open) and see what they have to say about it.
The guy said they were new updated models, and quite hard to get hold of!

This is just a thought and it's probably impossible because they wouldn't be out yet, (i don't know much about this stuff,) that it could be a change for NAMM 03?

NAMM generally only showcases products available for the North American market. Given that the FP hasn't been available on this side of either ocean for many years now, i highly doubt it'll be added back into the lineup... but one never knows.

The rare as hens teeth AANJ FP is heard about every other year, still haven't ever seen pics of one and until we do it will have to remain just another urban legend

to recap... no AANJ JEM77FPs have EVER been made. All previous reports were WRONG. Misinformation or people just not knowing what an AANJ neck looks like

This would be a possible 2003 model. I must say, i'd be rather *shocked* if it were made as AANJ, considering it hasn't been sold in the USA (second largest ibz markeplace?) for a few years now.

Pictures, and only pictures will prove this to be TRUE ...glen

well, I for one owuld love to see an FP with AANJ... the standard heel joint is the only thing keeping me from buying one.... old tech IMO. don't really understand why Ibanez haven't changed it.

urm...he's right

Well, ive been into Rose Morris on Denmark Street on a few occasions, and they did indeed at one point have an AANJ FP in there.... i have a VSBL, and an original 88 FP....and it was very much the joint on my VSBL... I thought all the modern ones would be like that...maybe i was wrong, but they really do have, or did have, an AANJ 77FP hanging up on the wall.

Why o why didn't the jem have an AANJ in the first place My Maxxas already had one back in 87... They only introduced them 6 years later which really improved playability As if they made a million FP bodies in one year and spread them over a decade or something...

Pekka, I've seen a few FPs at Levytukku acouple of times. Did they have the AANJ? I'm not quite sure, but I just have this feeling that at least one of them did.

They did not have the FP last time I was there so I could not check it out then...
