Re: 7 String J Custom with Tree of Life inlay

Too much money for an unbound rosewood fretboard, to me at least.

Re: 7 String J Custom with Tree of Life inlay

I must say I'd prefer a different finish, black is so vanilla, so typical. I'd love to see it with a nice flamed maple or koa top, or perhaps walnut. I'm a sucker for a nice wood top, which is one thing i think would look awesome on a jem. Just one guys opinion, sweet axe tho I'll bet it plays like a dream.

If it had an ebony fretboard I would be all over it.

Re: 7 String J Custom with Tree of Life inlay

This is one of the best looking 7 strings I've seen from Ibanez but WHY wouldn't they have finished it off by binding the neck and headstock as well as possibly adding an ebony fretboard. It just looks like they couldn't be bothered to finish it.

Re: 7 String J Custom with Tree of Life inlay

It would also be cool to see a fixed bridge version of this axe.

fixed bridge option
Ebony board
neck and headstock binding

Then it would be perfect imo, and I would buy one.
