    Hey everyone! I want to upgrade my tremolo block to a brass block, but I can't get a straight answer on the size. I have a 2020 Jem JrSp with the standard double locking tremolo. The stock block says 32mm, but when I asked fu-tone about size, they recommended the 37mm. BUT, then I saw a review...
  2. Pickups & wiring
    I'm looking to do some modifications to my Jem Jr's pickups in order to achieve at least a somewhat similar tone to Steve's. I'm thinking about swapping the stock pickups with a Paf Pro for the neck and an Evolution 1/2 for the bridge of the guitar to match those of the pickups found in Steve's...
  3. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi all, I am getting a Jem Jr and am planning to mod it and one of the things is a bridge replacement, I'm considering either a Gotoh Ge1996T Or an OFR, but if I were to go with an OFR, which model should fit the specs of the Jem Jr. ? Theres many different FR models so I'm unsure here. Whats my...
  4. Pickups & wiring
    Hi guys, sorry if this info is somewhere on here. I couldn't find it. I need to know if the JEM Jr has the traditional 5-way VLX91 switch or the simpler 8 lug type? This pertains to upcoming pickup changes (in particular the middle pickup I will choose) I will be making and info I received...

    Well, after 30 days soup-to-nuts my Custom Jem Jr. project is complete. It looks, sounds, and plays like a 3000k Jem. I'll start with a few pictures and then explain all the parts and strategy that went into it. I did it for fun, so I actually put more money in it than the purchase price of the...

    I have always wanted a JEM but I have never been able to afford one. Now with the "Easy Payment" plans of some websites and the proximity of Guitar Center and Sam Ash the idea of owning a JEM is more real than ever for me. However, the Japanese-made JEM7VWH and JEM77FP2 are still very...

    I want to buy either the Jem Jr or RG450DXB. Was wondering which would be the better option for functions, play ability, and quality. I've seen a lot of complaints about fret buzz and tuning issues with the Jem Jr. I've seen less complaints with the RG/DX's. The Jem is $100 more, but not sure if...

    My apologies if I missed an existing post here. I looked and didn't see anything. I caught a discussion (w/ pics) on one of the RG/Jem related Facebook pages recently that mentioned the possibility that the Jem JR is coming out soon in at least 2 of the fluorescent 30th Jem777 colors. Can...

    Hi everyone! Found a decent deal on a JEM JR which I picked up, it was missing a truss cover so they knocked it down a decent amount. As with probably everyone else who gets a JR I got it as a project guitar haha. Going to eventually upgrade everything but as it doesnt have a truss cover thats...

    Hey everybody, I have a 2016 Jem Jr. that will be my "modding" platform. I tried searching Jemsite for some help, but the phrase "jem jr" wasn't yielding results; I think it is because of how "jr" is only a two letter phrase. Anyways, I came across an instagram post of somebody who replaced...

    Joined Jemsite after purchasing my first Jem. I have a few questions about it so I'll search and see if I can come up with any answers.

    Beautiful 1996 Ibanez JEM Jr (555) Body in White. Condition: - Excellent physical condition - no major dents, scratches or marks - With time, it has aged beautifully and has the off white yellowing - looks amazing - I used it with an original EDGE bridge so the routing works for an EDGE if you...

    I've searched high and low and even tried contacting Ibanez support and still no luck. My Jem Jr tremolo arm used to stay tight and not swing but now it's loose and there is a bit of give when you try to use it. It's not snug anymore even though it's screwed on tight. Here's a pic...

    GC has a steal on the Evolution set, $165, and I just got a Jem Jr, and although the stock Quantum pups are OK, they don't have the depth that I'd like for recording...I think the difference in bodies is Mahogany in the Jr and Basswood in the Jem. I've found one review and the guy said they...

    Howdy, I just got a Jem Jr from online store. It is missing the trem arm. For thoses that have one of the newer Jem Jr's does it take an arm with a screw on bolt? Or one that pushes straight in with two bushings on the end that goes into the bridge. Could someone post a picture or link to...

    Here is my Jem Jr and I in action at the Pearl inside Palms Casino in Vegas last week. I modded the guitar with a new pickguard, Dimarzio Evolutions, and an OFR. It's going through an EVH 5150 III and I'm using a Boss SD-1, EVH phaser, and delay. It was an AWESOME show and this guitar delivers!!!!
