Ordered my first JEM - It's like getting a baby

Hi,

tomorrow I'll receive my first JEM - my first Ibanez at all. It's a 7VWH. Im totally nervous, feel sick, getting impatient, hoping this day will end sooner than all the others before

In the last few days I read nearly every posting on this board. Without doing this, I would be an owner of a JEM 555 right now.

Thank YOU that I'm not

Congrats Jember :thumbsup:

The waiting part is terrible and Murphy's law may still strike.
If it's sent by mail there is probably a flu epidemic lurking that will force the post office to close for a week. If you're going to pick it up at a music store, it will probably burn down tonight.

I'm just trying to make you panic :biggrin:

Hell.....I am now. Maybe it would be a good idea to drive up to the post office and spend this night
in front of their door....!?

You are lucky, I had to wait 1 month for my UV777BK to arrive...that was a long wait.

Hehe! I'd waited 3 days for my VWH to arrive. But to me those 3 days seemed like 3 months!

1 month? That's nothing. JS Clone 2 had to wait almost 7 months I think for his JS1000BP.

Jember - Let me know what kind of action you can get on your 7V with minimal buzz.
Measurement in mm from 12th fret to string E strings.

Thanks.

I know the feeling Jember. I ordered my first Ibanez last November, and it was hell, with all the waiting, and shipping concerns. I ordered an RG2027 from Rich at ibanezrules.com, after MONTHS of looking around for a piezo-equipped electric 7 string. Finally saw an ad in Guitarplayer, but then found out the 2027 was discontinued! What!? Well, to make a long story short, I FINALLY received it, and it was basically love at first sight! :love: Now, if only I had it BACK! Seeing *as it's taken me almost 6 weeks of waiting *ARRG!* to get the mods for it that I wanted!!! Hope you have better fortune than me there! Congrats on the JEM. :thumbsup:

It makes 2 months that i am waiting for my 7vwh too...i should get it this week, this wait was horrible, i called every weeks the guitar shop to have some news, i am sure now he's bored of me!

everybody who owns a jem7vwh, send me pictures of your guitar please! ([email protected])

questions: AXE means guitar? what does mean "IMHO"

thanx

AXE - analxexcrement (applies to Fen*er/Gib*on/P*S makes), or - audioxexcelence (aplies to Ibanez guitars)

IMHO - In My Humble/Honest/Horse sh*t
Opinion

Congrats! arty:

So, did you spend the night at the front door of the post office or did you spend the night at home afterall, nearly having a nervous breakdown? :biggrin:

Hope you enjoy your JEM!
