Lefty Jem 777 30th production totals?

From what I read, the 30th Jems were limited to 900 pieces, with 500 being LNG and the remaining 400 split between DY and SK... Does anybody here know how many lefties were offered? Some fraction of the 400, since they made no lefty LNGís. Iím curious, and have surprisingly seen no discussion of it.

The DY is my favorite of the three, so Iím stoked. Thisíll be my first Ibanez. Iíve always wanted something with a Floyd, but I always put it off, wanting to wait until something really special came along.

Iím digging the strong flame on the first couple of frets. Thereís some more scattered throughout, as well. Kinda cool to see that on one of these. Here it is:

Re: Lefty Jem 777 30th production totals?

The L's were not included in the production numbers Ibanez quoted prior to the release of the 30th, and their current policy is they will no longer release any production numbers but will only reveal the number shipped to a given country, which is never an exact number with rejections, rebuilds, replacements, and reselling the resurrected.

That said there were very few L orders taken in the month they allowed for orders following 2017 NAMM. I ordered 5 but I expected to have them for several years, just as when I ordered VWH's, and still have 1 left. Somebody has to inventory guitars for you leftys besides the L specialist shops.

Darn. I too was hoping to find out how many lefty 777LSK's were built.

Here's mine:

Re: Lefty Jem 777 30th production totals?

That looks great! Did you make a YouTube video? I saw that, but havenít watched it yet.

Anyway, yeah... I guess weíll never know. Even the number of righties made canít be nailed down I guess, for a few reasons I read about here. Thatís not the part that really matters to me, but it wouldíve been kinda cool to know.

It is interesting though, how little talk there was/is on the Ďnet regarding these lefties. At any rate, Iím REALLY happy I was able to get one. I hope this is a sign that thereíll be expanded availability of lefties in the future, of not just limiteds, but other Jems and nicer production models. Iíd love to see a lefty JEM 77 FP. Hopefully, one day....
