Re: My suggestion to Ibanez
I remember looking at pictures of the Jem77Vbk before I bought one,,,thinking "why a light brown fingerboard?" It looked pretty weird in all of the photos I could find. WHen mine finally arrived, all it took was some lemon oil, and it was as dark as could be. It was just SO DRY! It was baffling me why Ibanez would put a photo of such a dry fingerboard on a guitar like this to the point where all of the pictures make it look light brown. Since then, I've bought three more Ibby's,,,,and the rosewood boards were all extremely dry upon receipt. But ..it was an easy fix. But at least they should advertise with a nicely conditioned fretboard guitar. I almost passed up this Jem, thinking it had some different grade , really light brown wood - which would be awful on a very black guitar,,,which was not the case. I'm also in agreement on the headstock.....which played a small role in my RG1420F purchases.
