    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...

    Well guys, undertook a 200 mile all round journey to see this thing home, and damn its a stunner. The build quality is simply AMAZING. Dwarves any offering i've experienced so far from any main stream guitar manufacturer. Its solid as hell, with tone to match. Nice solid slab of mahogony for...

    I'm considering getting done a guitar for me by luthier. I have a good neck which is feeling good to me so the only way to do RR style guitar is to make it bolt-on. Will it sound good and powerful?? I'd like luthiers and people who have tried it this way to reply. I have all maple neck (one...

    I'm selling my 3 month old, barely played, never gigged RG8670TB guitar. Comes with case and J-Custom Certificate. Looking for £1000. I've decided that a fixed bridge guitar suits my playing style and will buy a 50th Anni Deluxe Strat. Here's my RG...

    ... a J-Custom RG8670 TB. I had planned on replacing it with a JS from Ibanez Rules (sorry Rich) but then I saw this last weekend. And it is rather wonderful, and really does feel a lot more sumptuous than the 7VWH I had before it. It's a real step up in build quality and feel. The neck. Oooh...

    Well, after an early rumor of the change and much confusion due to the ibanez.com website specs on the VWH I can now confirm, the 04' VWH now has a ROSEWOOD fretboard. The one shown at NAMM was ebony so I never gave it a second though afterwards. It is a nice dark select rosewood but it is...

    At the time of this writing Ibanez has sold 45,160 Jem guitars since the initial release of this ground-breaking instrument in 1987. Steve and Ibanez plan to do something special to mark 50,000 Jems sold. We'd love to hear your suggestions about how we can mark this important milestone in the...

    But I have a few questions about my choice. First of all, I am in a bind on which JEM to get. I know I said VWH, because this is the one I am leaning towards. My other choices are the DBK, and the JEM10. The reason I would consider the DBK is because of the value. I am not real crazy about the...

    Having spent all my money on a 10th but still wanting a DNA I was wondering if anyone in the UK with a DNA was interested in a trade. I have the following 2 guitars which I would be willing to trade for the right DNA (yes that’s both guitars for a DNA) 1) USA Strat Ultra. Limited edition...

    State your favorite guitar that you've ever played, any brand, any make, and provide information. My favorite is my Black Pearl Ibanez SF-420 I just got. Perfect medium of sound, neck feel, EVERYTHING. RARE! I've only seen one person use one ever. Made half a year in 1997, fixed bridge SF420...

    I just dug out my old guitar from the closet. I'd like to give it a little presentation because it was my only one in 17 years until I bought my Jem90 last year. It is a Wahburn Falcon. I bought it used in 1984 for $80. This was once a fine instrument but I did what many other did in the 80s. I...

    Well here's an idea - if I can't buy any more honey, can I restore the one I have? Sent the neck of my DSY JEM to Fla. to be re-fretted, refinished, and to have that nasty headstock stress crack broken & glued. Kinda psyched about that. Also, bought a spanking new CK trem unit, new original...

    Hi, I've decided I need another Jem as an 'everyday' guitar and I am drawn towards getting an older secondhand one.  I've been considering the FP, VDY, BFP and VSK, but I am wondering what impact the fretboard will have.  I have always played rosewood or ebony and have never experienced maple...
