Re: Question for 2010+ jem owners

wait I am confused what was wrong with the jem 7vvbk? And they didn't do it for only 2 years they did it for 2007 to 2011 which is mine.

Fixing wasn't an option. It wasn't loose binding, it was the way the mirror was cut. And then there were all the reflective anomalies with the mirror on the arm contour, and just random places.

That makes sense....... fixing them would take forever. time you couldn't charge for either.

So did you send them back, sell them as/is, or do a ****-ton of drop filling??

Wow ... those gaps do look really bad ... How many (in % of all vbk) did you have to reject because of those gaps ?

Re: Question for 2010+ jem owners

All those extra custom JEM options are why they cost so much. It can't be easy getting a perfect gap that like that.

I get it.... and why would you. There are bigger fish to fry...........

Never heard that about the tops/binding before............ Killer QC again....

Maybe we'll hear about how crappy it is that Ibanez make the Premiums look better than the Jem's too??

Re: Question for 2010+ jem owners

You can see the entire nut........... either the knob isn't seated all the way down or Ibanez used the wrong pots on this guitar. Fear of "scratching the guard" is a lame excuse by Fujigen if that's what they're saying.
