Smile JEM7V7 and a Friend!

This JEM7V7 is the crowning achievement of the JEM/Universe line!

Congrats. Love the super dark rosewood board. Looks like ebony in the pics.

I got it used from a guy in Hawaii.
He only played it at home.
It still smells NEW!

Re: JEM7V7 and a Friend!

Does that have scalloped frets like a JEM 6 string. Have they ever done a 7 with scallops or is this the 1st?

Yes, the last four frets are scalloped.

The JEM7V7 is almost identical to the JEM7VWH.
The inlays are the same size, shape and material.
Ibanez leaves extra space on both sides of the inlay because of the wider neck.
The neck shape even feels similar to my VWH, just a little wider.

The only differences I can see are-

Seven strings
Seven string Lions Claw
The seven string single coil has gold poles, the JEM7VWH has silver poles on the single coil

Re: JEM7V7 and a Friend!

This is so awesome! I have the 7V and am about to get the UV70P but would LOVE to get the 7V7 instead.

Man... I may have to splurge and go for the 7V7 to match my 7V.

However, if I DO that and get the 7V7 what I KNOW will happen is I will wind up getting the dang UV70P as well anyways and REALLY be in trouble with the wife! haha!

Congrats man!

I must agree. I really like this 7 string Jem. But I might have to settle on UV70P due to price.
Now I have RG and love it but want a Jem someday or Universe.

Re: JEM7V7 and a Friend!

The JEM7V7 is miles better than the UV70P.
I guess the price reflects that difference.

I would never have paid for a NEW JEM7V, $3300 is too much money for my brain to think about spending on one guitar.
