    Hey guys :D It is now Dec. 7, and my 565 is still in the shop getting the pickup switch fixed. I just looked at my first post here on jemsite which was on Nov. 18, and it was already in the shop for a couple of days by then. I know they're having problems getting wiring schems. from Hoshino, but...
  2. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    OK, I'm getting near done with my Jem custom. I really could use some help on how to beautify the guitar. Here's my photoshopped mockup of the guitar: Some things I WILL NOT change... pickups (routing), selector switches, pot positions. I really need input on color and top. The neck is...

    I want to replace the current saddles on my RG7621 with String Saver saddles, and the only one that looks like that would be a direct replacement would be the Import Strat (PS-8000-00) saddles. Is this assumption correct? Anybody use string saver saddles out there? Also, I used to see these in...

    im very intrigued by this model. its going to replace the RG7620 (still alive everywhere but here!) and the RG7420. what does everyone think of this new beast (and/or beauty). since this is most likely a prestige model is anyone going to be a little upset about where the midrange RG7s went or...

    My friend who's interested in the 570 went to musician's friend today to find that their site shows the guitar as discontinued. On music 123, they are selling for 399, which seems a bit low. Ive noticed that this is the usual trend. MF discontinues, and 123 starts to discount... Whats the deal...

    I've mentioned that I was interested in an RGR580 and my wife picked up on it and surprised me. Yes, she picked up the last one available from Isheebashee in JBB (Jewel BLue Burst). She's a keeper :-) If anything, I may change out the pups, but I have to try them out first ;-) See here Specs...
  9. Comments to Ibanez
    I'm an experienced 7 string jazz solo performer and I've been experimenting with scale lengths for the last year or so. My conclusion was that a longer scale was necessary for 7 string, especially with the low string tuned to an A (as is the custom among jazz players). I recently commissioned...

    Hey Moderators, didn't fins a better place for this topic, feel free to move it! I currently own a JS10th and a Ibanez Blazer. The blazer isn't much in use, so I'm thinking of getting a new guitar. Any ideas? I really love the 10th, so I'm not gonna sell it! What guitars should I test? I...

    I just picked up the december issue of guitar world last night and what do I see on the front cover! A custom fender strat , with white body binding, black finish, mirror guard, a duncan hot rails pickup in the bridge and an ibanez edge tremolo system. SWEEETTT. Too bad hes against signature...
  13. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    I did a forum search, and amazingly didn't find anything on hearing protection or ear plugs, so i thought i'd start a discussion on this important subject. I hadn't played with a live drummer for over a decade. This year i joined a band and we've been rehearsing almost every week for about 3...

    I recently picked up an RG565CA used at a silent auction. it's in the shop right now having the pickup selector switch fixed. I miss it already :cry: Anyway I found a picture of it in the '92 catalog but it dosen't seem to apear any other year. I'm just sort of curious if thats the only year it...

    ...er is coming. :lol: Yes, that's right, I'm finally getting a 7-string. :D:D:D It's not an Ibanez unfortunately, as they're still out of my price range for a bit, but it'll be a decent guitar for starters. It's a Schecter Revenger-7, and it's coming as a Christmas present. :D I've got...

    the guitar is a standard high quality guitar with not very appealing aesthetics, limited upper fret neck access, and a terrible trem...other than it being one of the few 7 strings with piezos on the market, why are they so sought after and expensive?

    ok, we talked about how we got hooked on Ibanez guitars, so how many do you own now and what are they? 1990 RG550 1993 RT650 2001 JS100 I wish I own a JEM77GMC though.
  18. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hello guys! Well, some of you already know that i'm possibly going to build a new guitar body soon. Well, { as always } i have some questions! I talked to my brother, who is a pretty good woodworker, about it, and he seems to think that it will be super super hard to do. That...

    Greetings folks, Steve Vai here. I have to say that I'm embarrased that this is my first time visiting the Jemsite. I'm stunned at the dedication and passion that you all have for the stuff on this site. I really enjoy it myself and feel as if I just discovered a little treasure. Reading...

    dear friends, i recently browsed through a copy of Guitar World mag (that issue with Tom Morello on the cover), there's this article featuring the band Taproot. i understand that one of them is an endorser & he sports his custom AX- fine. but the other guy has a strange ibanez- one with an SC...
