Sfogili jumping ship to Charvel?

I've noticed quite a few vids where Marco is playing Charvels. Is he moving on from Ibanez? Great player and great music.

Re: Are there going to be summer models?

I figured there wouldn't be anything. And I don't know about Indonesia but it seems Japan is being appropriately cautious.

Are there going to be summer models?

Not to sound insensitive. Obviously, health concerns are above all else. I was just curious if anything is coming out this summer. I'm guessing no?

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

Henning is one of my favorite YouTube people. He's whimsical but also calls it like he sees it. His vids are always interesting.

Now that I'm thinking of it.... and no offense to the new endorsed artists....
But why did some of the new lesser known artists get a sig but Ibanez didn't give one to Chris Broderick?

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

I totally agree!
I like guitars on spec, though, but in a lot of cases lately I find the signature guitar leads me to listening to the artist - a kind of reverse on the past. I didn't know Martin...

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

That's shocking! I can't believe VSBL flopped. It's one of my favorite looking Jems.

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

While the Jem is a nice instrument I think a better argument for the above is the RG. I don't even remember seeing a photo of another big musician other than Steve Vai using a Jem. Maybe Adam Levine...

Re: What upgrades can be done to RG550 genesis

I put a set of Evos in my RG20th - pretty much the same as a Genesis.
Since changing the pickups I named it Deevo - a tip of the hat to a former Jemsite member who had the same guitar.
Aside from...

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

I truly suspect the big stupid decal on the fixed Jem doomed it. Release it without the decal and I bet it does way better.

Re: Lightweight guitars

I think if "wood didn't matter" and it was just the strings and the pickups, then you'd be able to throw a Tone Zone and Air Norton in a George Benson and get the same results as an RG.
But I think...

Re: Lightweight guitars

I think, without reviving the tonewood argument, mass DOES play a role in resonance vibration in an instrument. I believe a lower body mass is going to resonate more easily, or probably more accurate...

Great post!
Yep, I like CD's and miss those days, but another measure of convenience - actual physical storage space! Ten years ago I had walls of CD's and DVD's. Now? I have two kids and less space...

Agreed on the PIA. Do what you want. Like what you like. I disliked PIA from the leaked images but the better images really got me to appreciate it a lot more.
I thought the 30ths were nice too but...

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

I remember a lot of people not liking the Jem when it came out, but mostly that seemed to come from Fender and Gibson people who looked down on Japanese guitars and superstrats in general.

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

I think it's true. I believe Ford had a bacterial infection that gave him the old green apple two-step. :D

Re: Good Bridge Pup to match with HFH in basswood RG/Jem

This is the clip that sold me on the 36th. I wish Dimarzio still had audio clips on their page.
Don't let the pic fool you. I think Jamie usually uses an EBMM Axis with 36th's in them.

It's funny. Way back in the day here at Jemsite I said Ibanez should spend a few more bucks in the Standard Indo guitars and put Dimarzios in and the barrel jack rather than the football jack.

Re: Good Bridge Pup to match with HFH in basswood RG/Jem

Jim, check out the 36th anniversary bridge. I love it.
Personal side-tracking note: I had the HFH in a Destroyer with a Super D bridge and loved it. I want to put it in my RG521 with a Super D. Been...
