  1. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hi there!! I'm so glad to introduce you my first JEM: When I was a boy, my uncle showed me the Ibanez Catalog and the 90's JEM became the guitar of my dreams, specially the PMC, with maple fretboard and swirl finished. In Spain, is very hard to find an affordable one in good conditions, so I...
  2. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hey Guys What do you think is the best Ibanez to buy for a project? I want Edge or Lo Pro Edge with Cosmo Hardware and a 24 fret neck that will fit a aftermaket JEM body. I see people using RG570 and RG550 but they have black hardware. Or am I better off just buying a neck and getting some...

    What pickups did you put into your custom built jems, or did you just go with evo's or breed's? H-S-H configuration
  5. Comments to Ibanez
    Just like the Xiphos 7, there has been a lot of interest over at sevenstring.org about a 7 string RG (mostly people say they want one that is not made from basswood). I'd buy one. It would be the answer to many people at ss.org's prayers, ha ha. Just a suggestion.

  11. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I thought of making the conversion of my RG into a JEM custom "made-like" by a good luthier and I thought it would be nice to make it look like the BRMR... But what is exactly the paint or the finish of the mirror ? Does it wear over time ? Does it show the scrathes ? Is it worth making the...
  12. Classified Ads: Ibanez JEM/UV Guitars
    This is basically the hardware of a Jem777 attached to an RG7** body with an old-school monkey grip. I checked the neck and it's legit although the headstock has been repainted when the body was repainted. It's a great player, but I'm funding an N4 and space (and cash!) is limited. Don't let my...

    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...

    I have an RGT320Q and Im thinking of replacing the stock Dimarzio IBZs. Ive read that the Tone Zone/Air Norton combo seems popular, but Ive had some negative feedback about the TZ. Im thinking Evo2/Air Norton. Im looking for a diverse sound, good heavy hard rock tone (Van Halen I, Petrucci)...
  16. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Is there any difference with the good Jem custom made replicas likes EKG, Sims and those guys (by the way not CHINESE REPLICAS) with the original Ibanez Jems? Just kind of curious because nowadays I can see loads of people are getting Jem customly made from them.
  17. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I just noticed (in the OT) that jjemmer777's Jem7brmr with vine is up for best Jem Custom award. Can't have that going on while it's perfectly obvious that my custom 'flo' runs circles around his 7brmr.;) All kidding aside, this is the result of a two year in-between-other-jobs-project and I...
