  1. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I am thinking about buying a JEM to add to my collection but am curious about a few things. How is the quality of the production JEMs compared to the ones that Vai actually plays. Does he play a special one? Also do you guys think they are reliable guitars and quality built ones also? How would...

    I spied a RG style guitar (HSH) at a local store. On the back of headstock it said Made in Japan or something to that effect. That label was under the gloss coat. I assume the model number was once upon a time stuck near that label but someone peeled it off. This model had a Lo TRS trem...
  3. Pickups & wiring
    Hey, I realize this is almost literally the millionth post on this switch but I have a few noobie stupid questions. 1) Are the common posts suppose to be connected from the VLX91 to the OTAX side with small jumpers? 2) I am using all evolution pickups and using this...

    Now that all is said and done what's the verdict? I'll base it off of looks, playability, overall design.

    Hi everyone - I'm going to buy a new Jem 7vwh within the month and want to know what I don't know. I've been reading this site for some time and have read many threads about the guitar and the various offspring of the Jem model. What can I expect in terms of best cash price for a new model...

    Hi to all! Just a question.. I need a guitar to play everyday for practicing, the main features that i'm searching are a trem, lightweight (most as possible!), and good pickups for metal!

    Hi I know the early 1987 - 1989 Jems had PAF Pros in them but what was the single coil? And what would I need to buy to have the same pickup as an original? Dimarzio FS-1? Thanks in advance

    On the eve of the JEM20th announcement, it has become necessary to start a single, organized, contained thread where Ibanez customers of past and present can convey their dissatisfaction of the JEM/UV line to Steve Vai (and indirectly to Ibanez). Some of you are misguided in that you think...

    dear Mr.Tak Hosono, it would be very cool if you could take some pics to ANY Custom models you guys at the Custom Shop build for the endorsees. they would be posted here or at the "Custom" section on the Ibanez forum, just for the Ibanez community to see. it takes nothing, just a couple pics to...

    Sup ya'll thinkin' of goin' into the 7 string realm, but have a couple of questions. If someone knows what I'm wondering and could post it would be a big help. Are the necks of the 7 strings always thicker than the prestige wizard necks? I have a RG550dx from like 92 and I know there's...

  16. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Alright this is soo wierd. Me and my friend just bought some new Dimarzios to replace the stock pickups in our RG550 and RG770DX. So we both replaced the pickups on our own but we are all now experiencing the same problem. When you switch to the bridge pickup it is dead unless you pull the...

    Anyone try any of his guitars or necks? He has that new machine to, his work looks amazing. http://homepage.mac.com/bigvelvetdog/home.html I want to get a neck there
  18. Pickups & wiring
    As you may know, I own a '91 Ibanez Jem77FP with Evos in the neck and bridge and the standard Jem single coil. I was *thinking* of replacing my bridge pup with a TZ to get that Gilbert, EVH, Ron Thal sound -- which may be blasphemous for a Jem (or possibly an Evo 2 to keep Vai in there ;) ). I...

    Hey guys Time for a new guitar soon. (soon is a relative word) I was thinking something like a JS1200 (killer looks and supposed to sound awesome) or a JEM77BRMR (also really killer looks, and breed pups too). The problem is, I live in Sweden, and I haven't seen a single JS(over 100) here. At...
  20. Pickups & wiring
    I have a Jem BFP that was someone's project guitar at some point. The electronics are mangled and I need to find the CORRECT wiring diagram to get it geared back up and running....I see that there are several diagrams on Jemsite, but I don't know for sure which one I am to use here.... HELP?
