New Jem77WDP

I'm really liking the look of this new Jem, and it's a Premium so should be affordable. Seriously thinking of selling my Sea Foam Green Premium to get one of these when they make it to the UK.

Re: New Jem77WDP

Boy I don't know what to think of this one.
Some times I think I really like the look of it and then the next time I see it I think its ugly as hell.
I think it's the pickguard that's turning me off to it.
Between the guard and those pickup covers it might be a little too busy looking.
I don't know?

Every pickguard should be different, you can chose plain one.

I definitely like the wood grain look but I am not a fan of those pickup covers. Plus I am not a fan of the Premium line but if it was a MIJ Jem then it would be super expensive...

Re: New Jem77WDP

Key point is that pickup covers are removable so its just regular dimarzios underneath. People often overlook that. I dig the different look myself. Street price should put this at a great players guitar point.

Re: New Jem77WDP

I wonder what the difference in sound will be compared to the other Jems as this one has a Mahogany body. It defenitly is a beautifull guitar!

Re: New Jem77WDP

wonder why they use an edge zero 2 instead of an original EDGE, if I remember , the premium JS comes with an original edge bridge.

personally I would never buy an Ibanez with a floating trem that is not EDGE/LO PRO/EDGE PRO.

I think Ibanez is realizing they need to tier the JEM line more.
So every dollar that goes up, adds something.
I see three tiers forming up.

JEMs with dots or partial vines with basic locking trems
Premium JEMs with Zero II trems
JEMs with the Edge trems, the works!

Re: New Jem77WDP

I like the body. I'm so so on the pick guard and I don't like the pickups. I am not usually a fan of JEMs but I think this one is pretty good.
