    Greetings, I never did post pics of this project guitar I finished (more-or-less) awhile back. It started life as a JS700, though it might be hard to tell that now. I refinished the body to a natural tung oil (formerly cherry red), routed the P90 pickup cavities to accomodate a Fred and...

    Well, today I got a VSBL neck and body from perpetual burn, it was supposed to be a modded VSBL with maple board, scalloped, YJM YJM and HS3, but he decided to do some different customs, so I've aquirred the neck and body. I had a breed, an Air norton, and an HS2 kicking around, a chrome guard...

    i have read a lot about this guitar and i am hearing that bang for the buck (around $700-$800 new), they are a better value than a Les Paul and from what i have seen on eBay, they seem to hold some value as well ($550-$650). anybody have one or have played one? i've never been an EMG person - i...

    i think this price increase is total bs. jems are already way too overpriced, why make them even more out of reach. There are a few jems in my guitarcenter which have been sitting there forever because they are so expensive. I dont know if this is a result of Ibanez or directly from Steve, but...

    I was lucky to get one of the first JS1200's in the states. I must say the red is pretty amazing. Very Candy Apple. The Ibanez site really does not show the red well. If you have one the JS1000's though, your not missing much. It's basiclly the same guitar. Not to say it's not sweet though...

    Hello Everyone, I'm new at this fabulous forum. This is my first post. A week ago, I bought my first JS guitar. I immediately fell in love with it, but as the one I bought it from was not the first owner, I have no idea how old it could be. Perhaps you could help me. I will describe its...

  14. Comments to Ibanez
    I wish Ibanez would do away with their Cosmo colored hardware. It tends to look cheap and ugly, especially on white guitars as well the Jem VSBL and other non-black guitars. Chrome is the way to go. ;)

    I m starting this thread because I allways thought that the white body with the pearloid pickguard and gold hardware is just really hard to digest. I think that the american, japanese and european concept of what is classy is very different. i think the jem10 is classy, although a bit baroque...

    I have a s-540 Ltd I think. It is the purple neon finish - dimarzio ibf hum-single-hum, black chrome hardware, edge trem. Here is the weird part, I bought the guitar used about 8 months ago. But It never really hit me, the neck inlays are sharktooth which would be correct for that model but...
