    There is a Korean-made JEM555WH at a local used shop for $399.99 US. What is everyone's opinion of the JEM555? This one is serial number C 424064.
  2. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    So I just got traded a 2007 black 555, it's clean and straight but has been raped and pillaged of its Dimarzios and hardware, it's all brand new Jem Jr junk as far as I can tell, the excrescent trem is a particular lowlight, however it was very cheap and a quick raid of my parts bins should get...

  4. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    (linked amazon . com link for BFP.. says indonesia for source) So what do I have to do to get a MiJ BFP? My main question is, what is the difference between the Evo pickups and the Gravity Storms? Where can I hear the difference? has Vai recorded any with the Gravity Storms ?

    Got a chance 6 months back to buy a 2002 SA160QM that'd been sat in an attic for 12 years, since its owner played it for a few weeks when then decided guitar wasn't for him. I didn't really need another guitar but it was only £45 (new list price in 2002 was I think £420) and I needed a "beater"...

    I've been looking for an MIJ S series but haven't quite got the money yet. About an hour ago an S470 in green showed up on my local Craigslist for $175. I've had a couple of Korean models but haven't tried this one. Does it even compare with the MIJ's in any way? Is it worth it at $175? I'd...

    Hey guys, I saw the "Best Ibanez ever" topic and a controversial idea came to my mind... What's the best Ibanez ever for you but... not manufactured in Japan or LACS!! It could be interesting to see your opinion now that there's a lot of controversial with the Premium series, the old korean...

    Hi, i got this guitar around 2007, and i have never been able to properly set it up, i throw in a paf pro in the bridge and a evolution in the neck, and sounds like crap, well to be fair the evo doesn't sound that bad, but the paf just doesnt cut it, also the lo trs II is rarely in tune, how...

    Selling my '97 RG470 in Crimson Metallic. The body has seem some use, but nothing too bad. It's missing the back cover plates. Everything else is great. It has a double cream DiMarzio FRED in the bridge and a zebra GFS FAT PAF in the neck. The trem had been replaced with a Schaller (German)...
  12. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hello: I was checking the Ibanez catalogs from different countries and I noticed that most of South America and Asia has a less expensive Jem called Jem JR. I verified and they are originals, made in either Korea or Indonesia. Their price tag if we do a currency conversion is around $600.00 us...

    I went to GC on my lunch break today. They never have anything I want. So, I checked out several Schecters and ESP LTDs. These were all MIK. To my surprise, the quality was much better than I expected. No sharp fret ends, no cosmetic problems. I haven't looked at these brands for a couple of...

    Someone in a post I started said that their Ibanez dealer told them the RG 4xx series starting next year would be made in Japan. Research tells me that they actually used to be made in Japan before being switched to Korea. I find this compelling for many reasons, can anyone confirm/deny...

    I've always been under the impression that every Prestige was MIJ. I've had two and my brother has one and all have been MIJ. Lately I've been seeing some FS/FT Prestiges made in Korea. I haven't personally come across a MIK Prestige; does Ibanez actually make any Korean made Prestiges...
