JEM7VWH - Being Discontinued?!

I recently heard a rumor that the JEM7VWH was being discontinued in the USA. *THIS CAN'T BE TRUE! *Somebody tell me that this is wrong, I couldn't imagine why they would take away the best JEM (IMO).

I personally hope they do discontinue the VWH. *With the new JEM coming, the only one right now it could replace is the 555, and I don't think we want another 555. *So, if they made a new JEM to replace the VWH, it would kick ass. *And maybe make a new UV while they're at it. lol

I have not heard that, nor would i expect the VWH to be discontinued anytime soon. No new models announced or discontinued until Jan NAMM so this is an INCORRECT RUMOR... glen

I don't think they'll discontinue it as long as Vai is using Evo as his main Axe. That would be very bad for business. If he adopts the new rumoured blue JEM instead, who knows.

I was certainly hoping not, because I just played that guitar and it kicks serious arse. *I really want it...

Personally, I would'nt mind if they discontinued the 7VWH. I already have one! However, I would like to see a new Jem that's as good if not better. No cheap replacements please!!!

I wouldnt mind if the 7VWH was discontinued either really. *Its a really nice guitar, but has lived its course on the market (time wise). *Plus you should still have easy access to getting one even after the new Jem takes its place.

Although the 7VWH is a great sounding and playing guitar, I hope this next Jem isnt quite as flashy. *(bright white and gold just isnt my thing)

Just curious, where did you hear this rumor?

i can definately see an argument for keeping it. *

As long as Vai plays EVO, it's beneficial for Ibanez to make a guitar that looks exactly like Steve's. *

It would also be nice to have that be the Legacy (pun intended) model of the line. *Like the American Standard Stratocaster. *While the rest of the line moves around, that one could remain stable.

Eh...who cares. *I got mine, screw everyone else! *LOL

Even though I have one, i would hate to see it discontinued. * *It is still the post Floral Jem standard. *Right now the Jem selection is so thin, that I would actually hate to see any Jem or UV discontinued. *They could simply add additional models to the lineup and still seem lacking compared to what the were offering just 4-5 years ago.

Wouldn't be too bad to see it go, am quite indifferent about that, but some new models would be very very nice! It's a nice looking guitar (although not my thing) but it has been around for years and years, so it's not like there aren't many out there... So new models please!

IMO... whatever they decide, they should also devote some decent attention to the lefty department (err, lack thereof). I'm still dreaming of a VWHLH but if not that, then hopefully the new JEM will be available backwards. *sigh* Dream on..

LONG LIVE THE 7VWH IS RIGHT! *This is the JEM of JEMs IMHO....this is the guitar I have wanted for a long time but will probably never be able to afford....LOL....seriously though, I think the 7VWH represents everything a JEM SHOULD and can be....I hope it sticks around at least long enough for me to get my greasy little hands on one!
