    Hello I hope it is not inappropriate to ask such a thing in this section of the forum. I will sell my beloved JEM505, but i am not sure what price tag would be the optimal to set, since i'm quite inexperienced with selling guitars and i want to know below which price i should simply not go...

  3. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I'm in a position where I may have to sell one of my JEMs. I'm just curious what sort of price I could reasonably get for a mint condition white JEM505 upgraded with Dimarzio pickups. I'm based in the UK, so prices in pounds of course.

    Hi guys, I need some advice on selecting the best pickups for an Ibanez JEM505. Basically, I'm looking to get a bridge and neck humbucker set to make the ultimate metal guitar. I'm wanting to cover as many bases as possible from prog metal to thrash/death and modern metalcore styles. Some of...

    Hi, Finally pulled the trigger on a UV70P after having had GAS for it for quite some time. I was not an Ibanez guy up until a year ago when I bought a JEM505 (pictured as well). I had a Japanese made Fender strat from 1984 (bought it new) that was modded along the line but it was stolen from me...

    I am looking forward to modding this up! The jem505 is like a "clean slate" jem. All of the quality of a made in japan ibanez and all the quality components, but none of the vai signature ostentation. I got it secondhand dirt cheap yesterday, this guitar has never been used!. Its immaculate...

    Oi guys, 1. I just bought a new jem 505, 5pc Maple/Walnut Prestige Jem neck, baswood body and maple fingerboard. It is quite an amazing guitar, i expected way less of the V´s, they are actually decent pickups but definetly not enough, it is a sin not to change the pickups and customize the...

    Oookelidokeli, the much debated jem 505... :) I loved it from the first pics I saw of it, although I knew it would need new pickups, I'm not a fan of the V7-8s. I was the first to drop an order for one of these to Rich, an I had him replace the pickups aswell. Even with his labour costs, it was...

    As I haven't found a thread that is dedicated to the upcoming JEM505, I decided to start one by myself. The guitar is no longer a surprise, since it is already listed on the German distributor's page at ibanez.de. The guitars are supposed to round out the JEM-line in the budget sector, though...
