ibanez jem floral
Hi I'm looking to buy a jem floral from the late 80s Ive always wanted one its the guitar of my dreams. Ive seen a few recently for sale but noticed something odd both of the jems Ive seen have had the back neck plates replaced so don't have the original jem plate. I would love to know why this is and should I be worried. one of the guitars in from a music shop.

Re: ibanez jem floral
IMHO there is no reason to replace the JEM neck plate. Corrosion is cosmetic and superficial to the metal plating. I assume the worst in these cases... people take the plate and use it to create a "fake" JEM (putting a generic plate on the real jem). If the floral is real and you get a great price on it without the real neck plate go for it as a player.
