For Sale- Original Ibanez Jem neck, Ibanez parts, and non-Ibanez Jem replacement body (Sold as a package):
Ibanez Jem 7VWh Neck:
Please read carefully:
This is an original Ibanez jem neck. Originally bought from [email protected]
Rules. In good shape, frets are lightly worn. This neck was never drilled for a truss rod cover. NO truss rod cover or string retainer included.It has 2 tuner screw holes for every tuner, both on the wrong side, i.e., it screw holes were drilled for tuners other than Gotoh; I don't know what kind. I installed Gotoh tuners (included) but did not drill any more holes, i.e., just tightened the mounting nut. Lo Pro locking nut included, COSMO black. Neck ferrules and mounting screws are included.
There is a mild .3mm hump down around the 18/19th bass side I mounted the tuners but did not drill the screw holes. There is hairline crack by the 5th fret on the bass side, approx. 3 cm long. However, it seems pretty stable and hasn't moved, I haven't done anything to it. (please see the pics).
This is an alder jem replacement body made by Guildwood-Custom guitars, all-access neck joint.
Guitar was painted white, but is NOT a professional finish. There is a filled rout in the back below the trem cavity, not visible in the pics but you can see the outline still if you tilt the guitar (filled with basswood), so it will not be suitable for a clear re-finish as the fill would be visible. The routing is normal jem-style, h-s-h, front rout.
It is NOT a 100% accurate jem replacement body. The overall dimensions are fine, but Ibanez cavity covers fit with a slight gap.
Trem and cavity plates:
Ibanez Edge, black. Good condition but some pitting. Note: The trem arm is not included. The trem block was originally a longer block that has been cut down to fit the jem.
