    It has been ages since I posted anything on the jemsite forum, but I thought that this might be a good reason to do so. I was recently given a second-chance offer on a near-mint all-original 1994 Ibanez FGM300MG guitar and immediately seized the opportunity. I am so excited to be able to...
  2. Classified Ads: Guitars and Gear
    I'm currently looking for either a Desert Yellow or Sky Blue Frank Gambale Model Ibanez. If you have one you're willing to sell, let me know and hopefully we can work something out. I'll also consider the Pink Salmon guitars and later FGM300 green guitars, but am most interested in the early...

    Hey guys I didn't have much to do today so I decided to take my "Girls" out of their cases for some air and some group shots, here's the 1st batch of my humble collection.

    Hi, does anyone know if there is a manufacturer who builds push-pull pots that have less height than "usual"? I'd like to fit a push-pull in the tone-position of my Saber, but it's too large in height. It sticks out of the electronic cavity by about 5mm, so there's no way to fit the cover...

    ok, i know someone who got a 550BK recently, second hand, obviously, and it has a maple fretboard. the serial number is # F0041644. to my knowledge, this means it was made in 2000, but i didnt think 550s were being made then, let alone 550's with maple fretboards. whats the deal with this?

    Looking at the new Ibanez catalog I realized there are 2 main different kind of frets for Jems: Jumbos and W/6105. I was wondering what's the exact physical difference between them and how fretboards equipped with them feel. THX for the help. :)

    Does anyone on this site own any of the Frank Gambale models? :roll: If so what pickups do you have in it? :roll:
  18. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Kinda long for a subject line, but that's my question. I don't even see that spec on the prestiges, is there a specific reason for this? I think it might have to do with the thinness of the body. Anyone with suggestions because I'm planning to direct-mount my hums on my S-520EX...
  19. Comments to Ibanez
    I'd think the advantages for this would be tremendous. Ibanez could produce a single 6-string and a single 7-string trem, which would be interchangable for left-handed and right handed models. Yeah, there'd be a slight cosmetic issue, with the extra hole, but if you shipped them with both the...

    The OTHER guitar player in my band, still has not seen the light yet and bought a Jem or Universe of his own. But he did go out and buy a 7 string and it IS an Ibanez. In fact he bought 2 of them. They are both Ibanez AX-7's and one is made in Japan and one is made in Korea. The differences seem...
