New guitars are more fun

Until of course buyers remorse and my lack of talent declare themselves...


Long time lurker who is drooling over the 30th anniversary JEM.
It's hard to take the plunge without putting my hands on one.
No Ibanez has had the magic of my first (16mm thin?) $500 RG of some sort back in college. Jewel blue.
Tastes and fingers change, I had to switch to lefty after a finger vs sharp object event. I'm pretty happy with my 655L from Rich. The guitar I reach for though is a JS2400, also from Rich.
After many ESP and a Jackson adventure, also EVH--Beautiful but the playability is not there for me. Fair enough as I am more collector than player lately. That needs to change!
I have the white monkey grip/gold hardware/vine JEM, not sure of model. I like the neck joint. Way too blingey. Thinking of selling it.


I really should go custon, with composite materials, but no patience or cash.
To that point, I think what is mostly special about the 30th JEMs is the price.
Anyone picked up a lefty? Opinions versus prestige models?
What person or shop is best floating bridge tech in WI?
Thank you

Must be one of the very obscure ones...


Not a lefty but i've wanted a 30th since the trio pic was leaked, not that i'll be getting one as my gear wallet is still recovering from a passion UV hemmorage a few years ago, maybe one day.

But you should totally pull the trigger on one and then post pics!

EDIT: also, nice poem...

So I take it the model is not obscure. I don’t recall it being particularly costly.
Not a JR. it came from Rich.
Speaking of which the ones on his website are not the ones in stock but are examples of sold models. Maybe he will post some if we ask nicely.

OK, I'm found..

Typical listing blunder, I copied over the sold out righty pages and forgot to remove the sold out line. Those guitars are in stock.

Thanks! They did appear to be LH.
The DY is pretty sweet. Now, off to sell a few guitars...
