  1. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    hey guys it's my first post in this forum so go easy on me :) I have the opportunity to get a replacement neck for my guitar and I can choose the fretboard between ebony and roasted maple. I know how ebony feels and I like that it doesn't stick to my fingertips when I'm bending. Should I...
  2. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hey guys, I have a 2000 JEM7VWH with an ebony fretboard and a Lo Pro Edge tremelo. Is this model worth more than the later models with the rosewood fretboard and Edge Pro? It definitely has some wear and tear, as you can see in the pictures because it was played a lot on gigs. I'm just...
  3. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I've been modifying a RG570CT (one way truss rod) and my next step is to install the frets. I need to minimize the upbow caused by the fret tangs (hopefully not) although I've already cutted the slots a little bit wider than the fret tangs that I'll be using. Is there any trick, method, technic...

    I picked mine up for £850 collected. There's a couple of small dings by the input jack cover, but that's it! I've never been a JEM person, I just hate the fact it screams "IM A HUGE STEVE VAI FAN" compared to the UV which I feel is more understated. BUT, it sounds and plays perfectly to me...
  5. Comments to Ibanez
    It's been so long since I posted on here I had to re-register! Rarely have I found myself grumbling about Ibanez (not since the Edge Zero trem fiasco), but today I find myself frustrated! I am after nothing too outlandish or special just an RG550 style guitar with and Edge trem and an ebony...

    Hi, I've been trying to work out if my 2004 JEM 7VWH has an ebony fretboard or a rosewood one. I've had a look on IbanezRules.com and had a look through some threads on here, but I cant seem to find a definitive answer. The serial number is: F0437860 I've had a few of my friends look at it...

    So now I'm finally a Jem owner. An actual Japanese made one, that is. I had a 70vSFG for, like, 2 day and technically it is a Jem but not a Fuji plant Jem. I don't have pics yet because I just got it off the Fleab but I have a link. Body's a little worse for wear but that doesn't bother me. It's...

    Ibanez 7VWH Jem. Made in 1997 (19 years old!) at the Fuji-Jen plant by the legendary Team J-Craft (same people who makes Steves own guitars). This is a stunning example which plays and sounds like a dream. Recently had it professionally set up with Elixir 9-42 gauge strings. I can't emphasise...

    Baked Maple & Ebony necks - any fans? I'm thinking about getting a replacement neck for one of my Strats and I'm considering a Warmoth neck with baked maple neck wood and an ebony fingerboard. Anyone ever tried a baked maple neck? I've heard they are more stable and they don't require any...

    Hey guys, Someone offered me an used "mint" 2001 Jem for a really good price. He lives far away from me, so I don't have the chance to see the guitar personally. It seems to be one of the last ebony + Lo Pro made, right? He sent me these pictures, does it seem to be OK? 1/6 2/6 3/6 4/6...
  12. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hi there...first post.. I've found a Jem 7V-WH for £1,000 in the UK. The retailer says it's from 2000 and has an ebony fretboard. I'm not knowledgeable enough to know if that is fact, as I'm not sure when they stopped the ebony fretboards - but it seems in great condition. Is this worth...

    Selling the last two of my Jems. The 7VWH is a '98 model with an ebony fingerboard. The only dings on it are pictured with a guitar pick so you can get an idea on how small they really are. It is all stock and comes with the trembar and a really nice Road Runner hardshell case. I just spent...

    Hi I am looking to buy a used JEM on the bay. I would like some peoples expert opinion on if this 1997 JEM is real or not as I have no experience with the guitar and can only go off of what I have read on the internet and this forum as far as how to identify fakes. Here is a link ...

    I ordered an EVH Wolfgang Stealth (USA) and just received it yesterday. The guitar is awesome, I love it, but there's some specs on the ebony fret board as shown in the pics. Is this just something to expect with ebony and I'm picky, or should I return it? This runs all the way up the neck from...
