Re: i'm new!
i don't wanna open a can of worms here...but i've had 3 jems..and ended up selling or part ex-ing them..my fave of the three was the jem bsb.
i've been without an ibanez for 3 or 4 years and since buying the rg550 for £300 last week i can honestly say that it's every bit as good as the jem (except for the pickups)..i can live without the lion's claw recess, monkey grip, fancy inlay, irritating jack socket placement & finally the last four frets scalloped..
the playability is every bit as good as any of the jems i had. it took me 30mins to restring it, drop the action and have the action feeling like buttered elastic!
awsome value for money..
i just can't wait till payday to get some new pickups!!
the guitar is all black except for the maple board...i may go for white pickups, knobs and selector tip..
come on guys..help me out with the colour scheme here!
