Re: Thoughts on the PIA (The new JEM)?
EVO was a full Fujigen production guitar, modified after the fact as many times as a main player of near 20 years will be. Supposedly the story goes picked out of the first batch of 5 production VWH's he was sent. Point again, the guitar is production, it's just been modified to suit particular needs afterwards. So saying everything he plays is US, again, full of it.
As I already said, I'd bet money all those PIA's are Fujigen, post modified how he wants them.
Hand picked necks, that I wouldn't even pass inspection, half the stuff from LACS I wouldn't pass.
I could care less if his has a sustainer and we can't buy it, those are the market forces and Fernandez won't play with Ibanez's ball. So he had some scalloping done? Should I be shocked? They still did the last 4 in Fujigen when they built it.
