Re: New Black Pia

Easy link. https://www.ibanez.com/usa/products/detail/pia3761_00_01.html

The gold is much more striking against the black. Then again, this feels like something Wayne Newton might have...

Re: Have the Various Colours on the Pia been discontinued?

^^^^^Have to say, our resident troll is correct on this one. Steveís choice of colors and patterns on recent JEMs and the PIA have left a lot to be desired. Heís great at helping Ibanez design...

Re: Have the Various Colours on the Pia been discontinued?

I am hopeful the come out with some new PIA colors for 2021. It is a great playing guitar, but the color schemes last year weren't my favorite.

I assume that Vai will do some sort of livestream to...

Re: Thoughts on the PIA (The new JEM)?

Iíve gone through a hate/love/unsure relationship with the Utopia pickups. I have Evolutions on a different guitar and prefer those. Waiting to hear (and see photos) from the first one of you who...

Re: Rich, is the Genesis is truly a prestige?

If you take out his obvious troll comments, I always enjoy learning from Rich and would love good comparison photos.

Re: Is my bridge height properly set?

None of your reference photos necessarily capture the precise view you need to judge. (But maybe you knew that when you posted them, LOL).

Nonetheless, in my unscientific opinion, it looks to me...

Re: Thoughts on the PIA (The new JEM)?

Bought a white one from Rich back in May. Presumably made pre-Covid shutdown issues.

Went to check for roughness. Very, very mild roughness on about 10% of it. Donít feel it is an issue...

Re: Thoughts on the PIA (The new JEM)?

I thought you said you owned a PIA in an earlier thread, or was that a 777?

Re: They removed all the MIJ jem to force people into PIA

The PIA is a better playing guitar in many respects.

But I digress. Yes, is a shame that they are moving so much production out of Japan. The Indo guitars are nowhere near the same quality.

Re: Thoughts on the PIA (The new JEM)?

Would love to get Richís take on what heís hearing. With no NAMM and the manufacturing challenges of 2020, would be curious.

For the people above noting body style of the PIA, I like mine. Super...

Re: New JEM77P-BFP - disappointed - should I return it? Help!

That's what kills me. I think it is one of the prettiest guitars they've ever released. If they didn't skimp on certain things it would awesome.

I have the same BFP that I bought used from Guitar Center, so I had the chance to try it out and inspect. As some noted, the Indo premium guitars can be rough. That said, yours looks like something...

Re: Help locating 10mm deep socket for Edge Trem

Rich thank you! Fixed it hopefully for a long time. Was a bit nerve wracking doing it on my 30th LNG versus an old 550, but it worked perfectly. Was amazed when the guitar was still in perfect tune...

This one should be easy. One of my Edge trem sockets is loose. Been lucky to never have this issue before.

Re: 2021 NAMM is Officially Cancelled

Only silver lining to Covid is that NAMM took place about 30 days before the virus started to take hold in the US. Otherwise that would have been the superspreader to end all superspreader events.

Re: Thoughts on the PIA (The new JEM)?

Will work that angle. That said didn’t jump in as obvious yesterday because was trying to sort out sound/volume comparison and the bridge and neck p/u’s already quite low. That said, will experiment.

Re: Thoughts on the PIA (The new JEM)?

I was not a fan of his amp tone in that video. Nonetheless grateful that our friends in Japan are helping to keep alive ancient US hair metal traditions from the 1980ís. I approve.

Re: Thoughts on the PIA (The new JEM)?

That was a great video. Really fun to watch him build and swirl the knockoff. Only critique I'd have is how he stirred the swirl, especially the headstock. But that's more an artistic critique than...
