  1. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hey guys I'm a little confused on what to go for. I definitely want to move to 7 strings for the extra range and thought a Universe would be the best way to go but dunno what would be my best bet? My options are making a UV77MC/UV77RE Replica as I've always loved the swirl finish but I can't...

    $750 SHIPPED Please call/txt and I can send you pictures or you can come see in person if you are local to Michigan. Will not let me post links or pictures because of post count. I don't post here much because I made my username here while doing research back when I was looking to make this...

    Hello, and thank you for clicking on this thread. I am a young Ibanez JEM and Steve Vai superfan, and I have always loved the Ibanez JEM777LNG (even since I was a kid!), but due to the rarity and obnoxious price tags attached to such instruments, they are an impossibility for me. However, I...
  4. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Just curious on what you guys think about it? I played one for half and hour before it got sold and it really was an amazing guitar. Not the best JEM I played but very close to it, light and resonant. A very smooth playing JEM. Looks very close to the original one too. I can't really decide...

    Here's my latest project. I have always liked Stryper and wanted to try my hand at Oz Fox's paint scheme of his Jackson soloist from back in the day. I only did the front as this was my 1st try using automotive paint products(base/clear) and didn't want to have a bunch of time invested in...
  6. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Well, I've finally bit the bullet. I've put a down payment on a JEM777LNG copy from Mai Guitar. It's gonna be close to original spec. Chris was very helpful in getting me info, and he said about 2-3 months to complete the thing (which is good for me). All around $1300. He says he'll send me...
  7. Comments to Ibanez
    Well, what lies in my mind is simple. There is definite and undeniable interest for the reliced/aged, whatever you call, guitars outside. Virtually every single guitar that Fender Custom Shop makes is reliced or NOD at least. Nor Gibson does with Tom Murphy. And there are boutique aged/reliced...

    Decided to just go for it. Got a So Cal that is pretty decent so going to strip it and give it a try. I've dug and searched for info. Anyone else have any good info that might help me on this quest? Primarily I need the paint info, can't seem to find it. IF I recall it was just spray painted, right?

    I wanted to share a couple of pics of my old jem I built 18 months ago, I have just re-swirled it and wanted you all to see her before she goes to a new home.....hopefully. This guitar is in another thread some where it was an old 'Jem 77FP' neck coverted to 'AANJ' a 'Perle Guitars DNA swirl'...

    I found a Hondo 935 Deluxe for $100 from a friend of a friend. This seems like a pretty good bargain. What do you guys think? Pic:

    So I am just finishing up this guitar and thought maybe some of you would get a kick out of it. The relicing is 98% done just have a few things to do here and there, but for the most part its done. I think its as close as anybody aside from Fender who actually had the guitar will get. All...

    Here we have an Ibanez Jem77 GMC REPLICA which was swirled by Nate Perle of perleguitars.cjb.net. It was then worked on by Simscustomshop who worked his magic by reclearing it and upgraded the Ibanez headstock decal with a neon green one subsequently clearing over that too. There is a...
