    OK, so I am not lefthanded, but these topics seem to come up over and over in posts and discussions on the board, and personally I do think that lefties get a very raw deal, so... Why are there no left-handed signature models? After all, they wouldn't be that hard to produce, the only changes...

    Anyone notice how cheap JEMs (aside from the PMC) have been going for on EBAY lately? I have not seen so many JEM guitars under $900 since about 4 or 5 years ago. VBKs for less than $700, NEONs for $500 to $700, FP's going for less than $850, BFPs going for less than $950 and LNGs going for less...

    I was watching VH1 the other day and i saw the Poison video Every Rose has Its Thron and CC Deville was using a JEM777DY.  I don't know how to take this.  Is it good, or bad?  I have to give him credit, the solo for the song was really tastfull, for an 80's powerballad.  But come on, its Poison...

    For years I've been banging on a Les Paul, not even thinking about trying a Jem because Steve Vai, though an EXCELLENT guitar player, just wasn't a hero of mine. I'm really into Ace Frehley because when I was a kid, it's his guitar playing that got me jumping up and down on my bed playing air...
  6. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I`m interested in a Ibanez JEM mostly because of options like lo-pro edge tremolo and 24 frets...and killer looks!! (Ok, some have great stock pu's aswell) Some of my inspiration comes from those Ibanez players like Paul Gilbert, Steve Vai, John Petrucci etc. But also from Fender players like...

    I wanna buy a JEM guitar, and i've been looking at all the different models alot. Well, i just saw the JEM10th Anniversary, and i flipped! It's amazing. I want it. But how much? I'm guessing it's pretty spendy, but is it worth it? Any other suggestions if this guitar isn't worth the price? What...

    So i'm very seriously considering buying an Ibanez JEM555bk (black), but i've heard some bad things about them. Alot of guitar players complain about the vine-of-life stopping at the 12th fret, but that's not a concern of mine. What concerns me is that the Lo-TRS tremolo sucks. I have an ibanez...

    Hope I am posting this in the right place..... OK,... Korn.. Ibanez gave them their own signature guitar.. Now, I have only heard the tunes on the radio of theirs, but from what I understand, its a damn good representation of what the rest of their stuff is.. Now, dont get me wrong, I am not...

    I mentioned this before in another thread and the idea was shot down, but I would really like to see a fixed bridge rg with a locking nut so it doesn't go out of tune. Every band I see that has a guitar player using a fixed bridge has to retune after every 2 or 3 songs. Thicker strings don't fit...

    There was a talent show at my highschool last night and i performed 3 acts. 2 of them were with the school jazz band, which we played Satin Doll and Tea for Two (Cha-Cha, Ha,Ha) and the last was with our pep band. The theme was James Bond, and i was chosen to do the classic james bond guitar...

    Like the title says, which guitarist would you most want to see with an exclusive endorsement deal with ibanez? ie some one who, in your eyes, would lend even more credibility to their status as a premium guitar maker, or even help broaden their appeal to those players who feel that it's "gibson...

    *Rant mode ON* I REALLY can't stand how 7 strings are taken today as purely an instrument of nu-metal or heavy stuff. Granted, the low-B does make it sound heavier, but that's not the ONLY application of the low-B string. I recently wrote a song which called for the tonality of a low-D, and...

    No offense to anybody that works at Guitar Center but some employee's there have no clue what they are talking about. This guy was trying to sell an old S series guitar that was made in like 97 or 98. Lying the entire time to the customer. The customer really did not know anything about this...

    any other Irish people on this site that Im not aware of, or anyone feel like coming to Ireland for the Vai gig, maybe we could all meet up before somewhere for a pint or twelve Steve

    Yeah I was dying to replace my DBK cause I really was bummed because I had to part with it some time ago! About 2 months ago I buy a used VBK for 850.00 and man am I excited I'm going to own a Jem again. I get a JS700 around the same time and start playing that instead of the VBK. Finally get...

    This is just a part of the whole interview. I only cared to translate the parts where he is taking about guitars. The rest of the interview is about his time with Zappa, Alcatrazz and Lee Roth. There is also some bits about his carvin amps, a lot about Favored Nations and some about different...

    Hi guys... I have a dilema ( yep, another one :)) I´ve just got myself a Jem 10th #242 :biggrin: Its a player, with a few touched up small dinks, but the price :biggrin: was very good (there are still deals to be found :)) and it has no fretwear etc. What annoys me most is the faded chrome on...

    The 7 string is all over the place. I hated it at first, because I didn't like Korn, and nu metal in general. I have since found that there are some good nu metal bands out there, and it's all ice cream, as they say. When low budget 7 strings first appeared, I knew that the 7 string is the pink...
