Hey
My name is Mark, I am from the UK currently doing a degree in music. I have a number of guitars, but my main 3 are a PRS CE24, an ESP Mirage, and a Ibanez JEM555. I guess all of those guitars are like dirty words on this board, but I am looking into buying a JEM7V... Honest!
Jemsite is a great resource for the instrument, and I look forward to participating on the board.
Cheers

My name is Eric. I've been snooping around the forum for awhile and decided to register. I've been playing for almost ten years and it's nice to find a forum populated by open-minded guitar players and not trolls, flooders and other types of cretins that pollute most music-related boards. Okay, so I don't own a Jem or even a complete Ibanez yet (I have an RG neck on one of my guitars), but this looks like a good board to learn about them at.

Okay HI!

I have a 2004 PGM301WH, a black 2002 RG-421 (I put in an 81 & 85), and a black 2003 RG-1521.

I spend most of my time with the 421.

My amp is a Boogie Rect-O-Verb.

Um, no effects except for the amps built-in distortion.

I've been on the forum for probably about 2 months, maybe a month and a half. I first joined the forum so I could ask some of the guys on the forum about LGM guitars. You guys of course gave them a glowing review. I'm currently attending Berklee college of music. My guitars are a Jem 7vwh, a fender FMT limited edition telecaster with seymour duncans, and an ibanez AW100, at least i think it's the 100, it might be a 150, i'd have to look but don't feel like it. I also have a fender jaguar with a mini JB in the bridge, and an epiphone sheraton. I don't use those that often at the moment because my space is limited living here on campus. my amp is also regrettably at home in rochester NY, so i'm forced to use a crappy marshall practice amp. I'm pretty good at theory and technique things so if anyone has any questions feel free to ask.

Hello, my name is Christopher and I am a full time musician and have been using Ibanez guitars since the beginning. Currently I employ a couple of Sseries 7 and 6 string models as well as a few custom Ibanez's. My collection continues to grow and my Ibanez addiction shows no signs of slowing down!!
I teach and perform full time as well as hold the Director of Music position at a music school here in Wilmington. Currently I am looking for a real versitile combo amp to utilize...if anyone here has any suggestions.
Thanks

On May 10th, I'll have been playing 21 years. I own 5 guitars.
A Jem 7VSBL, A Jem 7D , a Fender Lonestar Strat and A Ibanez RG 570 which I bastardized. Also, I own a Takamine acoustic.
I recently got back into playing again after 4 1/2 years off.
I work two jobs. One to make a living and the other to support my G.A.S.

Hey All,

I'm Michael, and I'm currently living near Savannah, GA. My work takes me all around the country, but I'm hoping to stay here, as my family and l like it here a lot. By most counts, I'm an 'old fart,' having played a VOX Super Lynx through a blonde Fender Tremolux amp in my band in the early 60s and 70s. It helped me with income while going to college. Many of you probably don't even know what a VOX Super Lynx is, and you may have never even seen a true blonde Fender amp. Unfortunately, I sold the guitar many years ago. I wished I still had it - both for the sentimental value, as well as the fact that it was a nice playing guitar with nice tonal range.
I've been playing off and on for the last 30+ years, and have owned a few guitars... two Tele's, a Strat, an LP, plus some different amps... Fender, Peavy, Rogue, and Marshall. I don't really care about performing anymore, but I do like jamming with a few friends, and making some recordings and so on.
For some reason, my musical button recently got pushed again, and I'm finding myself wanting to collect some 'favorite' guitars (as well as playing them, of course!). I'm selling my LP, as it's just not a "right" guitar for me. A keyboard friend in our group is buying it from me, as he's wanting to learn some guitar. It will be replaced right away with a new Ibanez SZ520QM, as after much research, I think will be a honey - giving me the chunk, sustain, and playability that I'm after. Down the road, I have my sights set on a Gibson Faded SG, a MusicMan Silhouette Non-Temelo, and of course, a JEM7V, just to name a few. I've played the first two, but never had the privledge to play a JEM.
I want the SG just for the all-mahogany tone, and the looks, feel and smell of unpainted wood. I want the MM cause they are fine-playing, well-balanced little guitars. I want the Jem, well, because it's a JEM! It's probably the epitomy of guitars, and the prize jewel of any player/collector.
This is probably like asking a Harley guy which bike he thinks you should by first, but here goes anyway! So, which of the three do you think I should go for first? lol Yes, money IS an issue, but I'm 'relatively' patient.
Anyway, I'm glad to have found this site, and I look forward to talking with many of you in the future. Keep playin'!

Hi! My name is Chad, I am 33. I live in Florida. I started playing guitar when I was 13 and played until I was 18. From the time I was 18 I played on and off until I was about 23, since then I have been a full time player.

My guitars are: Ibanez Jem7VWV, a Jem BRMR, Peavey Wolfgang standard flame top, Peavey Wolfgang custom shop standard and a Fernandes with the sustainer. My amp is a Marshall JSM. I have a Bad Horsie2 and a Phase 90. That is pretty much it. I have come here off and on for about a year. It is nice to have a website like this.

It is nice to meet all of you.

Hullo there. I'm Gurj, a 31 yr old metalhead living in a town no-one seems to have heard of in the middle of England. Picked up my guitar last year after five years of, er, well not playing!!!
