If that 90 is the one I'm thinking of, it had NO flame (not to start another Flame war thread). Actually I'd say there are 3-400 P1's.

Well, I'm not sure which one you are thinking of....but yes, the one I was pondering, after looking at many pics of it, I noticed there was very little flame from what I could see...that was another reason I decided against it.

I'm already having a hard enough time committing myself to plopping down $1300+ for what is still a Japanese Bolt-On neck guitar (although I have several Ibanez guitars, including a Jem7FP and a wacky, but very cool 540P, I've never paid anywhere near this much for one). *And although I've never even played an Ibanez JPM, everyone I've talked to said if I am a true "Ibanez" fan, I should have one in my collection because they were a unique model and feel and sound quite a bit different than most other Ibanez "shredder" guitars.

Yea, if it was in Germany it would be too high, in England it would be CHEAP
Tell me about it!!!

Anyway,
Knowing nothing about the JPM series and not really interested in them at all from a player point of view, can someone explain why they are considered a bargain when priced so highly? (for what you get material-wise that is)

Were all JPM models seen as some sort of custom/exquisite/rare guitar?

As I see it (and I reiterate, I know nothing of the JPM range) it's an RG made in the J-Shop with a graphic that's an acquired taste and a different neck profile.

Cheers
Steve

Personally, I love the tone, hate the way they play. I also hate neck bindings. Signature models always have their own following, and will always comand more than an *equal* (and I use that term liberally) model that isn't a sig.

I've seen JPM100P1 recently go as low as $500+ in Japan - not mint but certainly not ready for the scrap heap either. * They average about $750 there. * That's quite a spread from the surreal $1800 asking price of the one on e-bay.

Ibanez aren't seen as good guitars in Japan and are outsold by Fernandes, Yamaha and ESP maybe as high as 4 to 1. *

Yeah, buy it!

If I was offered a mint P1 in England for the equivalent (1000ish££££) I would have to have it.

If it's got a 97' serial # it's got a replaced neck.

just to tell that the neck has never been replaced and that the JPM100 P1 still was in the Ibanez catalog in 1997, so I don't understand where the problem is.

In what catalog? P1's were a 95' model. P3's were the 97' model.

sorry to tell you this Rich, but you can't judge everything with your USA guy eyes.
In the european 1997 Ibanez Catalog, the Ibanez JPM 100 P1 was there (with the P2 and the P3), and it disappeared in 1998.
And as you seem to know "everything' ;o) , did you know that European JPM 100 P1 was not called P1 but JPM 100 B ?
