My beloved Jem7RB

This is mine and I won't be selling it
Notice the new Jem pickguard puts the volume in a better position to the original. Oh and the Edge Pro is just great too. The new pickguard shows a more defined white stripe than original. Evo2 bridge & Evo neck being fitted as I type.

Re: My beloved Jem7RB

Thanks guys, the original Edge rattled and needed renewing. From getting my 7vwh 100% in tune even after extreme use I really wanted the same benifits of the Edge Pro. Although I won't test it so extreme as anything may happen I get it back tommorow with new Evos in it - I can't wait

Re: My beloved Jem7RB

Job done after the Overwater Luthier battled with it for 1week because Ibanez supply the wrong circuit diagram. Which Jems use a 4pole singlecoil as standard? - well done to confuse the rest of us Ibanez! The added VLX91 I used has a positive shift though and worth getting.
I eventually found the 2pole ISCV2 diagram. The pink p/ups don't have any DiMarzio logo on the caps and we found that the Neck had to be turned opposite to the Bridge to be exact to spec switching.

Too bad he damaged my pickguard at the selector switch by tightening with an electric screwdriver after deciding to buff out light scatches, thus making it soft and it cracked! What a way-anker for denying it too!!!

I'd like a new pickguard for it but this time I'll probably send out the original so that the holes are a better match and that it's the correct size. The Pickguard Paradise one was abit smaller - there was some slightly different templates around 1988. Any ideas in the U.K.? I'll ask Max Cottam if they can be cut here. It's expensive to get done in USA to send here to U.K.

Result - the Evo2 sounds exactly like the Evo but it tends not to over-push the preamp. It's absoltely perfect - even the Neck Evo.
I A/B it with my Jem7VWH and they are so much alike - perhaps slightly more mid in the Alder but even with the same strings it plays much easier! I really do prefer this one over the Jem7vwh as my 7RB has a slimmer width neck. I got used to it so much even without the AANJ. This one is a great Jem.

My Advise - don't get a bass manufacturer to fix anything Ibanez
