jemaholic Well, I went..... I saw........... I bought................

The Kramer. Salmon Pink- 9/10 condition with Floyd Rose. s/s/h. Matching salmon headstock.
The others were in rough shape with no special paint. This one looked new. $200. with a clean Ibanez hard case.

This was a fun exercise and one I'm sure to do again.

I think I'll barbecue a salmon steak in it's honor tonight!

Thanks for all your help fellow Jemsiters.

All the others would have a lesser FR type. The only trem I would choose over the edge trems (not trs) would be a real Schaller. If any have a real schaller then the RG may not be the best.

I cannot stress this enough. Beware of those cheaper jackson/charvel trems. Some of them are as bad as the TRS.

Hope that's useful.
The Charvel would either have a Schaller Trem or a JT-6 which IIRC was made by Schaller anyway. The early Kramer Focus guitars are awesome. I had a 6000 that rocked and I have a Focus Classic III now which will not go out of tune regardless of the whammy wailing. Gotta love OFR's!

Petie I would probably go the Charvel cos I already have a bunch of RGs. Sometimes it's fun to have something a bit different. Depends on condition of course and if I had the cash I'd get them both.

The Kramer would have a real Floyd. (Or did you mean "lesser FR type", as in they're all inferior to the Edge, and not that all the others are)licensed?)

The Focus guitars were a great cheaper alternative, to the pricier models. The Striker was the one that most folks would tell you to avoid, since the later models were plywood. (Music YO really screwed up, by having their Focus as the bottom of the line, and the Striker above it )

jemaholic Jono's probably right...

The early 570's did come in a "neon purple" color but was discontinued early on.
This could possibly be a description of one that's faded slightly and now looks pink.
I'll know next week when I see them.

270-again, haven't seen it yet- I know they never came that color- possibly painted later. Might look cool if it has the shark-fin inlays.

I'll keep a "Cautiously Optomistic" attitude.....

Again, it's not gonna' be neon. These guitars were never painted Neon colors and they really aren't that good.

These were painted with the same pink that the Jems used and are subject to fading. If you can swap the neck out for a Jackson or Charvel neck, you may have a descent player.

sanitarium Yeah get the 570. That's gonna look bad ass
10-19-2004 06:01 PM
JESTER700 The Focus 3000 isn't bad, either. ESP made, with an OFR. It all depends on price & feel. See if any "speak to you"...

Jem7RB MK Ibanez 570, But overlook the Model 3 at your peril, They are still great guitars

But i'll echo everyone, Get some spandex on and get a group shot !!!
