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

Aye that one is completely stock, the one with scallops has a sustainer in the neck position.

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

You can't see the clear curves on the edge of the fretboard? Because I can see the scallop really clearly in that photo.

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

You can see it clearly in some angles, and in some of the other videos

It's pretty clear here though too in that worst gig video.

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

That does seem pretty crazy, almost everyone I've seen who is either lovestruck by the PIA or interested in buying one is interested in the coloured models, based on YouTube comments mainly the Pink...

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

The issue is I find the PIA hideous (which is why I'm not buying one), though if it was less gold I might like it so I'd be happy to modify it in a way that can be easily switched back if needed. I'd...

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

If I was buying a PIA and I've decided I'm not. It'd be a green one and I'd replace all the hardware with Cosmo Black, in the process I'd put in a Lo-Pro instead of an Edge and I'd replace the gold...

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

Lets say his new White PIA neck isn't one of his prototypes from the USA and is from Fujigen, it's still a custom neck that I can't purchase as a customer. If you're Steve Vai you can get a neck...

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

You're changing the meaning of what I said to suite yourself, just semantics. If it's not being sold to the general consumer it's not a production model. Many companies "produce" items, but unless...

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

I've never seen one that yellowed other than EVO, not in real life nor in pictures. I was sure I read somewhere a long time ago that the paint was specifically developed to not fade/age over time,...

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

Yes I said he doesn't play the Japanese "Production" guitars, as in the ones we play. Also that's not the post you quoted, but it doesn't matter because the point I'm making doesn't change just...

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

His pink one seems to lack the sustainer, his green and white ones have a sustainer, the white one also has a fully scalloped neck.

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

Can you explain the different paint on EVO compared to FLO or production models? EVO is cream, others are White and don't yellow over time. And I didn't say he only plays USA stuff, I said he plays...

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

Well the point I made was that he wasn't playing the production models, not that he "doesn't play japanese stuff"? And that he plays stuff from the USA shop. Nothing about EVO is a production guitar,...

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

I don't have time to go digging for that now as I'm out and about, it might have been a video with Martin Miller and Tom Quayle and their guitars, saw it last year. The other video I'm sure is...

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

I've literally seen the prototype shop in the US in videos discussing building and designing the guitars for endorsees in the US, and I've seen the guy who built/designed steves PIA (in the USA)...

He's talking about Vai's personal PIA that he plays. Vai doesn't play the production guitars from Japan, his guitars are made in the USA by the prototype builders, the white PIA he is using as his...

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

Youtube comments to the announcement video are generally very positive at least.



We knew the Jem was continuing though as it's in the 2020 catalogue, it's the Prestige line of Jems that has...

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

Replace the knobs with the 7V knobs and the pickups with a set of Evo's and the PIA will be acceptable, then it's a 7V with stainless steel frets and an unfortunate accident where the Monkey Grip...

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

This is what I don't get, the JS2480 costs less than a MIJ 7V (by about £130) so they can obviously put it on there in the price bracket. Steve has got his brand new PIA sig model and it's already...

Re: Ibanez Lo-Pro Edge - 1990s vs modern replacement

Yeah the Gotoh 1996 is awesome and I usually recommend it as the best value trem out there, my buddy replaced the trem on his old Jackson with one last year and is full of praise for it. With my...

Re: Ibanez Lo-Pro Edge - 1990s vs modern replacement

That was £237 from Thomann, which was the cheapest by quite a bit (£280 most places). I could have saved some if I didn't get a gold replacement though. It's really not cheap but what can you do,...

Ibanez Lo-Pro Edge - 1990s vs modern replacement

I just purchased a new Lo-Pro Edge to replace the tired old one on my 1994 Jem 7V, noticed there are quite a few little differences between the old and new version. Nothing especially interesting...

You got me curious for a moment there, but it seems to be a MIM guitar with a Floyd Rose Special and a list price of £956?
