Jems for left handed



Hello:

I am looking for any info about left handed Jems or Universes. An English Jem owner told me that the Jem for left handed exists, and I have checked here, at Jemsite.com, one left handed Jem sale.
However, I could not access to any other info about this issue.

Greetings from southern Spain,

I think the only left-handed one I've seen would be a 555.
I'm not to sure though.

of course you could have one custom made for you by

www.universaljems.com

Paul Clark who is playing at Jemfest UK (www.jemfest.com) is having a left-handed universe made for him

Best wishes

Simon

Hello:

Thank you both, BucketBot and jemsite, for your superfast reaction. As I have been looking in the gallery, Jem555 LWH is the only (and not recommended in Jem/Uv Specs page).
I have a lefty RG-550 since almost 12 years... I think it could be better to find a good luthier to fix my guitar: it is really bad condition now, after many travels and no manteinance or improvement. What do you think about this? Any suggestions?

You can order an RG680L from Japan if you're looking for a new lefty.

Hello:

Thank you all for your replies. Very helpful

As I have been taking my time to take a look into the amazingly wide world of Vai's signature guitars, I have returned to my first idea: customize my RG to Jem. Actually, in my opinion this is the best option for any lefty RG-550 owner, because I think that the basics of this model are quite good.

Now I would like to say that the concept behind Universal Jems and Ibanez Rules is amazing for me too. I think there is not such a thing in Spain, though my budget can not afford -by the moment- a Lefty Jem made for me (maybe 5.000$?). Anyway, I have a couple places to send my guitar now, and this is due to you, folks

One more thing:
One of my favorites Jems is that black one which Vai played the concert of Guitar Legends '92, in Seville (Spain). I remember it with white fret dots, pickups and knobs, and I am not sure if Jem7PBK is that one. Anybody knows?

Greetings from Spain,
