    Hey guys, I've got a beautiful 'mint' condition '88 Root Beer Jem (7RB) that I bought from a fellow forum member late last year - it's in a pristine, virtually unplayed state and of all the RB's I've seen has the most beautiful wood grain and colour. I actually picked up another beat up RB just...

    Hey, need some advice there's an 1988 jem 7 RB I have in negotiations and I would like to know what things I should check for authenticity. Also it has seen some wear on the headstock and a couple of nicks and dings on the body. I've got him at 1436, but should I go lower? One more thing though...

    The first jem 77 fp's is said to have the curtain fabric from Steve Vais own personal curtains from his home. If this is true, (I actually saw an interview where Steve himself claims this), how big was his curtains? How many guitars could have possibly been made from those particular...

    Hi all, new member here, hoping to make this my go-to for anything Ibanez! So to make a long story short, I got into a very lucky trade recently, with a guy that probably had no idea what he was giving me. I have a 1988 original Ibanez Jem77FP, all original hardware and paperwork. I have no...

    Hi, I have a jem 7rb root beer serial# 882290. Amazing guitar well looked after, only 2 small dings on the under side of guitar and couple of tiny bruises that will probably buffer out. All original parts and none missing, original hard case. I'd say bloody great for a 24 year old guitar...

    Hello ladies and gents. Cool site. Question for the pre-JS 540r gurus. I picked up an '88 a while back and I'm wondering if the pickups are original. They don't have the white "IBZ" printed on them like all the others do in the pics I've seen. They look the part (from what I can tell anyway)...

    Here is the story (even though it might be typical of many jemsite folks!): I am the original owner of this guitar. It was my first "real" or new guitar. I had been playing an Ibanez Roadstar II and was looking for something new. The time was 1988. I went to Manny's in NYC and tried every...

    Here's the run down. I have a '88 S470, the electronics have had the crap beat out of them both by myself and the previous owners. I have swapped out the PU's and have bought some push pulls pots, I however can't make up my mind on what switch to use. I first tried a standard Start switch which...
