New VSBL owner!

Hello all,

I have been lurking around here for a bit and wanted to say hi. I just took the plunge after standing on the fence and bought a new VSBL today. Took me a bit of time to find a new one being that they are discontinued and all but I managed. Would have prefered to get one from Ibanez Rules after all I have read here but that was just not in the cards. The first real guitar I ever owned was a Jem. Its there in the bottom right. Pink. Well...it was the 80s and we were all a little nuts.


I have had and still have many other guitars but no jems and that one was always in my heart. It eventually was sanded down and repainted candy blue with turquoise tiger stripes LOL. A couple years later I broke the neck and the rest was downhill. Anyway I look forward to checking out and participating in the postings. I'll post some pics of the vsbl when it gets here next week.

Re: New VSBL owner!

I'm pretty excited. Today I ordered a custom pearl white pickguard, and set of covers from Jeannie Pickguards. Should really add something to the instrument when combined with the sparkle blue and aged look hardware. Now if it were just going to be here in the MORNING! Next week. I think I can wait that long. Maybe.

Oh and nah I don't have any of the parts from the 777sk. The guitar along with the cracked neck were sold to help finance a Jackson Randy Rhodes Custom. That one I should have kept as well.

Congrats on the purchase. I'm a fellow VSBL owner. Please post pics of the guitar with the new pickguard. I've long been considering replacing the pickguard *and* the inlays, but I haven't decided on what to replace them with. So I'd like to see it when done.

Hey Goozman
Good for you. I love my vsbl. I had a friend who had that 777sk in 87 or 88 and it blew me away. From that point on nothing felt as good as a jem or even a wizard neck for me. It took me til '02 to get my 1st jem, the 7dbk. Got my vsbl in '03. Enjoy it when you get it!

I know this is an old post, and I apologize, but I just got a 7VSBL and love the guards and plates you got (Pearl) and would like to get the same exact set Goozman. Could you tell me whom/where and what part numbers or set numbers or names to order??? I am new at the site and searched, but still not sure, I like yours and wanted to go to the source.

Thanx for your time in advance,

"10/10"

Try a internet search engine on Jeannie Pickguards (never heard of 'em). Also try the pickguard paradise or EKG links above.

Re: New VSBL owner!

Sweet, you have completed the Strat to Jem conversion. I love my VSBL and the pearloid makes a world of difference IMHO. I did that to mine as well. I think the white pickguard looks to "Straty". Please mind you I have nothing against strats. My very first axe was a strat....Blue at that

I had a flat white pickguard on my strat that I changed to pearloid... My strat looked too straty : D

I'd cut a monkey grip in it, but the only things I have is a leatherman and a hammer....
