J-Custom-Style-Vine thread!

A thread purely for those of us who think the j-custom style vine inlay looks um-heap better than the jem style!

Much more clean, much more ornate without looking tacky like the jem style can do sometimes. And it has more contrast thanks to the dots and different materials!

Re: J-Custom-Style-Vine thread!

I'm thinking of getting a new neck made for my S2170, does anyone know which luthiers (Jemsite or otherwise) would make me a j custom style vine with flame maple stem?

Oh for Gods sake get over yourself you poop head! The JC vine couldn't even polish the nutsack of a Jem vine. That is if it had nuts that were packed in a sack...

Go back to vinesite.com! This is Jemsite, you noodle headed ding thorper...

I don't usually like antique-like finishes on ibanez because I think solid (neon) colors suit them better.
But I must admit the tobacco burst on this one is just crazy beautiful!

LOL !!!
Ok, since you asked soooo nicely.

The early vines had some mirror and some abalone leaf inlays.
This then changed to abalone and pearl.
Then the 'stem' changed from brown to pearl.
Some Ltd Editions have white pearl leaves and stems i.e no abalone.

There may be even more different ones actually ?
