New Jem Idea

Hello everyone,

I just thought i would pitch my new jem idea to you and see what kind of comments i get about it. What do you all think about Ibanez producing a complete replica of Steve Vai's green meanie Charvel. Personally, i think this is great idea and would love to see it. I know it probably won't happen but hey, you never know. If you don't think the green meanie is the best guitar they could replicate from vai's collection gimme your idea on which one. Thanks!

That replica is pretty cool but the need to do a total custom shop model with the stickers, hand routed recessed rout, and the strat style headstock. They would also need to include vai in this matter. That is why i think ibanez should make it.

GMW Guitarworks also makes this replica. Plus there's cheaper I think.
