My new favorite guitar: 1988 Jem77FP

I guess I'm now worthy of joining this site.

Always wanted one of these but could never afford one back in my college days. Finally got one this weekend and love it!

oh - can't post a pic yet......

Congrats dude, and welcome to Jemsite.

ps, you don't actually need a Jem to sign up, just a love of guitars.

Can't wait to see pics.

Re: My new favorite guitar: 1988 Jem77FP

Congrats, man! I have to say, I just put my '91 FP back together this weekend after having the neck out for a couple months getting a minor issue resolved. It quickly reminded me that it's my favorite guitar in my arsenal.

Once you play a late 80s to very early 90s Saber/Jem/Radius/Power/UV its hard to accept late model Ibanez.

I can post pics now.....



I like that fact that this is the 1st year made - 1988. Anything particularly good or bad about that?

In words of Steve: the best sounding Jem (Guitarist 5-6 months ago), when the FP2 model was unveiled.

Re: My new favorite guitar: 1988 Jem77FP

I always wanted an FP. In fact, when I bought my 7VWH in 2000, the FP was what I really wanted. Unbeknownst to me at the time, the FP was no longer available. I settled on the 7VWH. Don't get me wrong, I love the VWH, but I had always wanted an FP since I first saw it in the late '80s.

Great score! It was one of those in the Just like Paradise video in 88' that made me sit up and notice Jems... The affair still goes on ;-)

I adore his honesty to admit endorsing a guitar that did not improve in sound at all over 20 years ;-) .

Nothing bad. I had an 88 and it was an excellent guitar.

I was thinking there may have been improvements/changes over the years or something that may have made the early ones less desired.

I prefer the feel of the older jems (actually all Ibanezs) to the newer ones.

I would always choose a square heel over an aanj. I am in the minority, I know.

I agree 100%!!! There was some undeniable magic in those early Ibanez guitars! My 88FP is the greatest guitar I have ever owned!! I bought mine new in 1989, and have been in love ever since! 6Fingers will tell you different, but these guitars actually have the ability to spiritually become one with their owners!! Good luck with yours!!
