NGD : Ibanez JEM 7vWH

Hey guys,

Today, I finally got a JEM as well. I can't express how happy and grateful I am... Now I understand why you guys praise these beauties so much... But something bothers me, there seems to be some bumps in the screw holes. Is this normal? Do you guys have this as well? Also, this might seem like a stupid question, but how do you tune this beast? Any maintenance tips?
On to the real star of the show... Sorry for the bad pictures... Also, it seems like my case doesn't want to 100% close if I don't lock it.

I can't really see much from the blurry pics of the screw holes. I take it you mean the bolt on neck holes? I wouldn't worry about that anyway, it's on the back and in the holes even. Who cares? Trust me, after about 6 months of ownership, you'll stop going over it with a magnifying glass everytime you give it a slight knock and panic about dings. Guitars get dinged and have imperfections. It all adds to the story of the guitar. I love my 7Vwh dearly and she's got a few dings now being 3 years old.

I wish I had an original edge bridge like you though. WAAAAAHHHHHH!!

Yeah, I meant the bolt on neck holes. Camera really had trouble focusing due to the white I think. I really can't tell how amazing this bridge is, as I haven't tried others like the Edge Pro, but it sure feels amazing to me Also, it seems like it's near impossible to get it out of tune !

What years is it?
It looks like a five piece neck with an original neck??
That is strange, the older JEMs have one piece necks???

It's a brand new 2011 vWH that I bought yesterday. They switched back to the Edge in 2010 (I think)

Re: NGD : Ibanez JEM 7vWH

Is it supposed to not return to zero after I raise the pitch? Should I adjust it in some way?
