    So, I wanted a mahogany guitar, and have a had a few Artists and Hamers and decided to go with a Les Paul. But I am not a fan of Gibson's recent quality so I found a nice recent Tokai on Ishibashi and pulled the trigger. It's an HLS, not an LS, so it is made by Hibiki and is more like a '59...

    Before I post pics of what I've been up to the past couple months, I just gotta say that I love Jemsite. I disappeared from the forum for a few weeks (actually to concentrate on final exams) and received several messages from fellow Jemsiters asking how things were going, making sure I was still...

    Ok - I have kind of a dilemma. I got a USA Jackson Tele in trade for a USA Jackson Strat of nearly the same vintage. The guitar plays really nice, and I always wanted a Tele, but it isn't really comfortable. I'm not fat, but I really like tummy cuts. For the same reason, I could never keep...

    Has anyone ever tried this? If so, did it work? Thanks
  5. Pickups & wiring
    Any suggestions for shred and blues pickups for an RG550 with a maple neck. I have Evolutions in now, but I want something more open and natural sounding. The Evos are very focused and piercing and not that great for rhythm. I was thinking Pearly Gates for the neck and Alnico Pro II for the...

    Hey, I've owned this guitar a very short time :? about a week in total but i just cannot get used to the seventh string!!! I'd played seven strings before and found them to be fun but never really for long periods of time and i found the seventh string to be more of a nuisance than something to...

    http://www.ibanezrules.com/catalogs/index.htm Check out the artist series from '85 and '86 with the floyd bridge...damn, wouldnt you buy one if they still made them? I would kill for an Epiphone les paul/ibanez artist series/ibanez ax style body equipped with a floyd rose!

    Alright guys, here's the battle. Would you rather have a 22 fret neck...or a 24? Is the tone change significant enough for you to stay faithful to the 22/23 fret necks? or is your creativity need 1-2 more frets to really bust them chops up?
  9. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Thanks in advance for the help guys. I am pretty sure I will be trading a like new Gibson Les Paul Classic with HSC for a good condition JEMVSBL. The JEM is mint other than a tiny crack that has developed right at one of the two screw holes on the back of the neck/headstock. It does not appear...
  10. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I m starting this thread because I allways thought that the white body with the pearloid pickguard and gold hardware is just really hard to digest. I think that the american, japanese and european concept of what is classy is very different. i think the jem10 is classy, although a bit baroque...

    I thought I should start a thread like this since we have one from winter NAMM 2004 :D . OK, I was there yesterday(2nd of April 2004) and here is my impression of things. The Ibanez booth : Well actually it wasn't Ibanez but their German distributor Roland Meinl. The big letdown for me here...

    There has been alot of discussion on the issue of Korean made Ibanez guitars (and signature models) with the 555, other Ibanez guitars and certainly this will continue with the new EP7 "Acoustic JEM" being produced in Korea (not Japan like the JEMs & Prestige guitars). Please answer the poll...

    Hello all, I've been lurking here for some time, but now it's time to show up. :) Anyway, there's a dilemma I am to face. My main guitar is Gibson LP, I also own an Am St Strat; both are hard-tail guiatrs and are quite recognizable and specific. Now, I want to get a versatile guitar, that...

    I have been shredding for over 27 years. I have owned just about every kind of guitar on the planet from every manufacturer. Without question... my USRG20TP is the finest playing and sounding guitar I have ever owned and IMHO absolutely the finest guitar Ibanez has ever made. If any of you are...

    I have come to love the Ibanez product, but growing up in the 80's, where does Ibanez come up with: "Since they were created, the Ibanez RG series guitars have become the standard in hard and heavy rock guitars." The standard in heavy rock guitars were definately Charvel/Jackson's unless I am...

    Firstly, I'm sorry if this thread is already started by someone before. Has anybody ever play EP7? Anybody know how it sounds? Well, everybody including me is expecting good things from EP7. Two days ago I was visiting a big music shop in Frankfurt (Musik-Schmidt) 10 minutes before they were...
