Re: Ibanez Premium Jem Monkey Grip

My 2017 JEM7V doesn't feel rough on that area. It may depend on the time the builder has spent polishing that part, or on the wood itself.

I had a bad experience...

Re: Anyone has replaced the Evos at the JEM7V-WH? Gravity Storm? Doug Aldrich?

I've finally replaced the Bridge Evo with a Gravity Storm. That's my tone! Now I feel like home with this guitar.

The Evolution has a nasty grit for my taste. I also find that the Gravity Storm...

Re: IS THIS A FAKE JEM/UV??... here (& only here) is where to ask & discuss

Is this a fake JEM?

21 frets, no scallop, no floyd rose, no locking nuts, no humbuckers and non-matched pot knobs :nerd:

Anyone has replaced the Evos at the JEM7V-WH? Gravity Storm? Doug Aldrich?

I’ve recently purchased a JEM 7V-WH and, although the Evolution pickups have their special character, I prefer the Suhr Doug Aldrich (currently installed on my RG550LTD) or the Dimarzio Gravity Storm...

Re: Are Joe Satriani's guitars stock?

I don't think Joe Satriani could play with the brand new JS2410 that I bought. The pickups were extremely microphonic. They squealed like a demon in the nearby of any speaker, PC speaker, Studio...

Re: First JEM String reccomendations

When I started playing guitar there was no internet, so I spent five years buying whatever the vendor at the shop offered. Until December 1988, when I saw an ad at a magazine that said "Joe Satriani...

Re: Ibanez RG550LTD Limited Edition

I am tempted to buy a JEM7V 2017 (100% mint condition for $2,200). But I feel like a child with a devil whispering in one ear and a wise angel in the other.

The IBANEZ EJK1000 is theoretically intended for the Edge, Lo-Pro Edge and Edge-Pro. Would it work with a original Floyd Rose?

Re: Ibanez RG550LTD Limited Edition

Yes, you can change the tuning on the fly without needing to re-adjust the trem springs. It blocks the floating bridge even if the arm is loosen. There are 3 rubber bands that tightly fit to...

Re: Ibanez RG550LTD Limited Edition

That is the Schaller Tremstop. I never leave home without it. Instant blocking the tremolo bar. Useful not only for blocking the bridge but for easily returning to tune if a string is broken.

Replacing a Lo-Pro Edge with a Floyd Rose using the old studs and inserts

I have replaced a Lo-Pro Edge with a Floyd Rose on a RG550LTD. I didn't have a big nut to use the trick to remove the stud inert (hardware shops are closed in Bangkok) so I have used the old studs....

Re: Pro Track vs Satch Track ???

I know it's an old thread but, since you have both the JS2400 and JS2410, what would be your preference if now you had to choose only one?

Re: To anyone who has used Gravity storms

Thank you for the comments.
I will put the Tone Zone (bridge) and Air Norton (neck) back into the j-custom, Gravity Storms back into the RG550, and maybe I will try the EVO2 at the j-custom later.
