    Did anyone notice in the old days Flo had a half tree of life inlay and half dots down the neck? I noticed it when my uncle showed pics of Vai from the 90's and I found pics on of 'Flo' Google! Here's the link www.jemsite.com/jem/photos/uz99/flo03.jpg
  3. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    In my quest for the ever-cool "swiss army knife" I stumbled upon an idea based on a pair of unfortunate incidents. Let me preface by letting you all know that I have a cool Steinberger GS with a Sustainiac in it, my Bernie Rico Jr. has a piezo bridge with coil-tapped EMGs, I have a Suhr on the...

    I seriously want either green or pink humbuckers on my DY. :D But I actually love the stock pups, so can I just get a pup cover? Also, does anyone know of a vendor that we can buy the EXACT stock pickguard? I can tell its going to be scratched to hell after a couple of gigs, and make no...

    My Jem20th arrived today. Since it is, and has been, really cold here for the last 4-5 days, we decided to play it safe, and let the guitar warm up before we actually unpack it from the case. I can say that the case is HUGE and has a anniversary plaque on the front, and one inside on the...

    Did Ibanez cheap out with their stock pickups? I was thinking about how Ibanez used to include REAL DiMarzio pickups as stock pickups on a lot of models, like the RG3120 and a few others. It seems like even the really high end Prestiges come with those Ibanez/ DiMarzio pickups rather than real...
  8. Off-topic / Miscellaneous
    I want your opinions on this. Do you think it is a legite way to do music or do you think it is a disguise to dating and mingling? I had a horrible experience with it recently and have not been on my "myspace" page for months- I have been reading so much about it in the news and San Jose is...

    I just brought a Jem for $450 US the neck is off a 97 7vwh so it has the ebony board and scolloping and AANJ all the things I love and the body is off a pre 1990 777VBK that has been painted white and been modified to have an AANJ, some sort of filla must have been used because the shape is just...
  11. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    since i bought my guitar 2 years ago, i was disapointed because i thought that the evos should be hot pickups, and the thing is that the guitar volume was lower than my older yamaha wich is an RGX721 mid quality guitar! i had the idea today to measure the output of the the two guitars and...

    I did a search, and while I found out what f-spacing is and when to use it and not to use it, no one ever said whether stock Ibanez Jem pickups come from the factory with F-spaced pickups. Anyone know for sure? Thanks!
  14. Comments to Ibanez
    I've always thought of the Prestige line of guitars as the highest quality guitars available from Ibanez in the US. While I appreciate the additional attention to quality that goes into the Prestige guitars, I would like to see better pickups installed in them coming out of the factory. The V7...

    Right guys, I currently own a black ibanez RG550, which i have fallen in love with... But i find it a tad bland to look at! :? so I have decided to spend the money i have (about £500, $800) on modding the thing. I am not interested in changing the way it plays (apart from scalloping the...

    I´ve always prefered earlier jem than newer ones, so I took a look to this site´s guitars specs, and a doubt came with the pickups used by jem´s...PAF pro???Hmmm.. Dimarzio says in their web site they introduced the paf pro in 1992,so how could a 88 Jem equip it?Was a different pickup or...

    Hey,     just wondering what everyone's favorite JEM pickup combinations are... Personally I love the PAF Pros. They are great for cleans and are very nicely compressed for a very smooth distorted tone when soloing up above the 12th fret. I love the way the PAF Pro kind of "holds" each note...
  20. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I know its sad :( I have been collecting other Ibanez guitars and Jems for a few years now. I think I liked them because they were different, and people would go wow! when you pulled out that fp from its case or when the stage lights dimmed on my glow in the dark pbk. And I liked the looks of...
