Good choice Sir!
That would be my choice too. Love the 7BBK. I'd be happy with the Root beer Jem too. I had a chance at one in the late 90's-early'00s for $900 AUD. Went back to the shop the next day and it was gone...

Talk about an advertisement, the PBK is pretty underrated as far as JEMs go.
That's partly due to its having a Wizard profile neck and not the Jem carve of the period. Close your eyes and it feels like a 550/570.

"Everything at a proper time" is an adage, that has so much truth, so what is the sense of reissues ?

ibaraki_gaijin I think they should do a throw-back but a new version. Made in Japan so double down on the Japanese theme.

I'd like a new FP but with a new floral design. Use traditional Japanese paper cherry blossom design like these.

Possibly roasted maple neck with white vine? Or better still disappearing cherry blossom inlay.

Otherwise my next project is to buy an old 505 and make my own.

Also, wouldn't it be cool if they reissued the FP with the pyramid inlay fretboard? Anyone have that picture of that one? Somehow it really seems to work...

UVs: 777GR
JEMs: EAFX..... lol j/k, probably the FP or maybe the RB.

And any swirl from the 90's if DJ was doing them of course.

Jem and Universe re-issues, what would you like Ibanez to do?

Just throwing this out there, given all the speculation about what Ibanez are up to regarding a 2020 Jem refresh...


If Ibanez asked you what Jem or Universe re-issue you wanted them to release (or you think they should release) in the future, what would it be?


For anyone who reads my posts it's pretty much a given that I would want a JEM77GMC and UV77MC, as close to original spec as possible.


But I wouldn't mind a re-issued 7PBK or 7RB, as long as they had the original super-thin wizard necks.


I'd be interested to hear what retired models people get sentimental about.
