so, is it a jem, or a universe?

so, is it a jem, or a universe?

this sounds lame, i'm sure, but whats the difference? color? shape? most ibanez's look the same to me anyways. not that the shape even matters much, tone is all in your head i think.

what is it about these guitars that make people spend so much money on them? i wouldn't be able to sell my guitar for $100, but it plays better than most guitars i've played on.

confused on the fu$$,
-leon

UV is a 7 string model guitar developed by Steve Vai.

Jem is a 6 string model developed also by Steve Vai and has a monkey grip and lions claw.

both guitar are very unique and cool. some like the swirls and anniversary models have a nice resale value because of their limited numbers.

You may be the victim of some deception, Brian. This gentlemen appears to be wearing a Jemfest shirt on his website. If you can find it among all the pictures of Satch and Petrucci! Oh, and his aunt Sande, who seems to be quite hot in an auntie way.

If only you weren't so good natured Brian. Didn't you wonder how he got to 120-some posts without knowing his ass from his elbow? Seems to be working for me though.

The joke is if you read all these informations about Jems and Universes on this website you don't need to ask. My first thought was -that must be a joke-
