Cool NGD:VSBL

I actually got this one about 3weeks ago- just forgot to put it up.
I'll get a better pic of it and put it up.

Nice Toy!
The metallic blue is so cool
I put white knobs and a white truss rod cover on mine.

Re: NGD:VSBL

Very cool man congrats... love the blue.

Really makes me wonder why there hasn't ever been a red Jem?

At first I thought maybe Vai hates red or something, but now he plays that red guitar he had built for the Hendrix tour all the time....

I think a metallic red and this blue would make an awesome pair to own

Re: NGD:VSBL

Mine is a bit more banged up. I sure wish the blue inlay would stand out more though but it plays fantastic. I also bought a used mint '07 Jem77vbk.

Its nice to have both an alder and a basswood jem.

Is it your first jem?

I always wondered that too, they should make a red Jem one day for sure.

Yeah I was really happy at how good the condition of this guitar is, it has one little ding that was fixed very well and you can hardly see it- it would be mint if it wasn't for that

No, I also have a 07' 7VWH and a 96' BSB, so I have 3 now- hoping to own 5 one day

Re: NGD:VSBL

Knowing Hoshino, they wont give us any decent red metallic or anything in the near future. I waited and waited for namm, hoping ANYTHING red or metallic would come out and was disappointed. The only way it'll happen is if Steve says "make it so."

I wonder why they stay away from red?? Seems weird, you're right though won't happen unless...

I couldn't believe they only made the seafoam green colour available on the premium Jems :/ must have been Steve's call maybe?

Funny you guys mention this.

A few nights ago I had a dream that I met Steve Vai. Details are foggy but we were hanging out in someone`s home (mine? his? Someone else’s? not sure), in basement rec room drinking, shootin’ the ****, talking about music, guitars, jems, and at one point I asked him a question something along the lines of what’s in store for future jem models and he said his wife (I think he actually said girlfriend in the dream, but you know how details get jumbled up in a dream) had specifically asked that he do one in red, so that was what he was going to do.

I awoke shortly after that point, very excited. 1) I met Steve Vai! 2) there’s going to be a red JEM! Cool!

Then reality sunk in. Just a dream...

Hahahaha how coincidental is that?? Maybe you seen a little glimpse into the future

A red Jem would be nice, also they should consider doing one of them 3 tone in 1 colours or fantasy whatever they are called, like that chameleon model Ibanez used to make.

Took another pic after having a little play at lunch.
