F-S: One month old JEM77BRMR bought through Rich Harris...

Just got it a month or so ago directly from Rich of "Ibanez Rules" fame (the multi colored swirl banner at the top of this here "Jemsite" page)...

Lifted directly from his website, and make sure to read those two descriptive links of his I provided, here's what Rich does for his customers...


.................................................. .................................................. ....

JEM77BRMR - After years of of R&D the long anticipated Mirror Jem finally makes its debut.

Prestige 5 piece maple/walnut neck

18mm 1st fret - 20mm 12th fret

43mm nut width

Warmoth 6105 Frets

Basswood body

Edge Pro bridge

Dimarzio Breed neck p/u

Dimarzio Custom mid p/u

Dimarzio Breed bridge p/u

Chrome hardware

http://www.ibanezrules.com/tech/setup/stud_mod_03.htm

In addition to the comprehensive setup performed, a full fret level, crown, and polish is now standard for 2005. Full details here.

http://www.ibanezrules.com/new/setup_trem.htm

List price $3099.99, includes molded J Craft case.


.................................................. .................................................. ....

Suffice it to say, NO retailer sets up a new JEM from start to finish as well as Rich Harris. Dude truly lives up to the hype.

Anyway, this guitar is dead nuts perfect. Other than taking off the plastic over the pickguard it's in the exact same pristine shape it was in when I opened up Rich's amazingly thorough packing job. Zero nicks, dings or scratches. It's a brand new '06, bone stock, serial # F0604424, in the "Team Ibanez J Craft" case with all the endless case candy and the ginormous owner's manual. (That freaking owner's manual is larger than the ones that come with most new automobiles!)

I'm getting pics taken of her tomorrow, for inclusion in the e-bay ad I'll place tomorrow night. Pics are pretty unneccessary though since it literally looks identical to every other brand new mirrored JEM77BRMR you've ever seen that was in perfect, unflawed condition.

The reason I'm selling her? Rich will laugh at this once he reads it but he'll probably recall our phone conversation before I bought the guitar. I talked to him for about forty minutes about this guitar, the JEM7VWH, the Andy Timmons model and the John Scofield model. I was totally torn between all sorts of guitars. Finally, about a week later, I made up my mind and bought the "Bad Horsie" JEM from Rich.

Awesome looking/sounding guitar. Freaking gorgeous guitar. Perfect playing instrument...








....but the wrong guitar for me. I'm primarily a blues player and as such I barely use the Edge Pro or the 24 frets and I certainly don't use 'em with nearly enough aggression to justify having 'em. I'm also used to mahogany, and chunkier necks.

Right guitar, wrong guy. I shoulda got either the Scofield or the Timmons (or something else entirely), ie, something more in line with what I play. Having already owned a JEM7VWH for a couple years, I shoulda known, huh?

Oh well, now I know for sure, once and for all. I'm now fully cured. Or doomed. Whatever.

Anyway, this guitar's never been gigged and I never flung it in the air or swung it around my back. Since I've had her for these few weeks she's been babied more than my wife. (By far, according to my wife...)

I won't take less than $1900 plus insured UPS Ground shipping for her and the first $2K plus shipping will nab her. Check my e-bay rating under "flamedkoafatboy" and you'll see that you can buy from me with complete confidence.

PM me or e-mail me at [email protected] but one way or the other jump on this thing right away!

I got that feeling when you couldn't decide between a JSM and a JEM

Talking Re: F-S: One month old JEM77BRMR bought through Rich Harris...

It's always been that way with me...utterly retarded, torn between polar opposites.

What I really want is an Andy Timmons model, only with a 14" radius rosewood fretboard, stainless steel 6105 frets and a recessed Wilky route. Gotta have 22 frets with a JEM style contoured neck heel and in a perfect world it'd also have a mahogany neck that's a little thicker than the Prestige neck on the JEM. Cool fretboard inlays like what's on either the Timmons model or a JEM7VWH wouldn't suck either. That'd be my perfect guitar.

Uhhhh, got anything like that laying around the shop??

I know we're not allowed to post auction links here so for those who want to see the actual pics and further description of my guitar I'll just give a heads up that I finally got around to posting my e-bay ad for it today and it's available for viewing now...

Oh, okay, I thought I was only supposed to refrain from posting auction links.

We're not allowed to post anything pertaining to 'em either then?

No problem. My apologies. Mods, please go ahead and delete that one announcement post of mine, but leave this thread open otherwise.
