Re: For those of you who wanted to know how a fake jem sounded like

wow, umm, was that guitar even in tune? or was the action so rediculously high it was unplayable? The Chibanez I saw has enough action at the 24th fret to allow my pinky to pass under it.

well, it sounds like any other guitar. you can make any guitar sound nice, but it's the playablity you cannot capture on video.

I think it's just like any other guitar, you need to have the break in feel before you truly can control the instrument but certainly not the same with a 7v a 1000 times!!!

Re: For those of you who wanted to know how a fake jem sounded like

eh, i think that the reason that the action is so high is that the neck has no truss rod to adjust bow, so it's practically like a bow and arrow. i really don't thhink they are worth anybody's time.
