    Wow, first post My name's Kevin, Im a guitarist from around Dallas, TX. I've been eating bologna and drinking water with hopes of putting back enough money to buy a JEM. Along the way I decided to 'upgrade' my 321MH to a JEM copy. I in no way am trying to sell this as a real JEM, of course...

    Greetings fellow Jemsiter and Jemsiterette's!! Thought I'd dedicate my 7000th post to one of the most obscure "rarely seen" Jems ever:razz: More people have seen "Bigfoot" or witnessed "Nessy" than have viewed this treasure! Behold................:mrgreen: (sorry for the crap camera)...

    After many years of craving for a Jem Vine, *sighs* I FINALLY got one!!!! :mrgreen: I named her "Sparky." The 2002 VSBL IMHO is far better looking in person--like most Jems are. ;) The evolutions are high and crisp in tone. I get nice clean tones and crunchy distortion with these...

    On the eve of the JEM20th announcement, it has become necessary to start a single, organized, contained thread where Ibanez customers of past and present can convey their dissatisfaction of the JEM/UV line to Steve Vai (and indirectly to Ibanez). Some of you are misguided in that you think...

    Hi, I'll be posting the advancements of the chrome vine inlay into my BRMR in this thread. We're now at phase 1, which is pulling the dots and the frets and filling up the (dot) holes with epoxy resin. So there isn't an awful lot to see yet, but it's a start...

    Heres some pictures of a Chrome RG I did tonight.........haven't had a chance to clear it yet but when I do I'll mock it up and post some more pics. Probably going to put all chrome hardware, i.e tremelo, knobs, back plate, chrome dimarzios, tuners, and a chrome vine.
  10. Comments to Ibanez
    Are still those "new" bridges being manufactured under Floyd Rose licence? Do Hoshino still paying money to them? I knew that they were patented by ibanez? And last ;) Is there any engraving on the back side of new trems about "Floyd Rose"? Thanks for comments.

    Which one do you like better??? Sorry, I don't have a picture of one with pyramids because one probably doesn't exist;) (YET) I actually think pyramids would look awesome too, but I opted for the Vine:)

    ..and I have some simple questions. (I've bugged Rich so much the past few days with so many questions that now that I've actually ordered up the guitar from him I just don't have the heart to keep bugging him with these extra questions...) -Anything in particular I should know about cleaning...

    ...why the stock ordinary inlays? I wish it had something cool like the JEM7V does, maybe they didn't want to take away from the mirror finish, but I think at least like a pyramid inlay or something less plain would have made it even better. Just a trivial rant, lol. ;) Jeff

    Hey Jemsters! Well....since no new Jem models are avaialble for 2006 (drats) I need to find another way to satisfy my nasty case of G.A.S. So......I've decided to get a BRMR. I've heard a lot of good as far as the neck feel, playablity, etc. Plus I want to see what these Breeds are all about...

    I recently came across a website called monsterguitarshop.com, and am thinking of having the build a double neck for me, just the body. It would be a Universe on the top and a jem on the bottom, I would have to locate the necks myself, that is ok. I am just wondering if any of you have ever...

    As successfull as the JEM range has been it seem interest is dwindling, the current models are uninspiring and the re-hash of the DBK into a super expensive "exactly the same but with a fragile chrome finish" model does not seem to being the JEM lineage any favours. Why can't they do a...

    i grew up in the 80's and always wanted a Jem and only saw a couple in person at local music shops. they were way out of reach of a kid in high school at that time with a $5 an hour job. i really wanted a VBK. that sweet green vine and the monkey grip were just amazing touches that i dreamt of...

    Hey, I'm sure you guys have been on www.vai.com recently and that you've seen him on the home page holding an all-black Jem. I may not know as much as some of you on Jem guitars, but I've been looking around alot for quite some time and I just cannot find the name of this model. I doubt it is...
