That is all a bunch or crap. I Emailed that guy and told him that his statement wasn't true (as verified by hoshino) and he told me to "Shut Up"

He designed them, yes, but he just doesn't play them. I think we would be suprised, I bet there are ordinary people out there that actually own more Jems than the master himself. Really, I know a guy that has over twenty Jems:) Most of them seven strings! Vai is just sticking with the 7v, which is w...

It just isn't worth all of the routing that will be neccessary. I would just pay up, and buy a pre equ 8) ipped floyd rose guitar.

What do you think they call it a Jem for? Steve designed the Jem to allow him to explore all boundaries of his playing. IE, deep cutaway, lions' claw, etc... This effect seems to lie in all proud jem owners.

I use canned air, and an old soft toothbrush. The canned air should get most of the dust out. You may have to take off the saddles to get deep down in there to get out the grime. For this, I just use good old Dunlop formula 66, and saliva!

A simpler, less messy way to repair this is to place half a hardwood cocktail stick (or matches will suffice) into the screw hole ensuring none is protruding. As you screw the screw back into place, it'll bite into the cocktail stick/match push outwards and firmly hold the screw in place! I did thi...

Let's see, Frank Gambale (economy picking) or Steve Vai and John Petrucci (strict alternate picking). Hmmm, lets see. Isn't the proof just in the pudding?

I have my three jems. I know a guy that has well over one hundred guitars, and the funny thing is that they are all low end. He has spent thousands on crap, and I am happier than he is with my three jems. My fourth (7v) will be here from rich at Ibanez rules in about a week or two. Couldn't be happi...

If I was you, I would just wait and save more money. There are some great RG models, but they range from 400-700 USD, and up. Another bet, is buying a used RG on Ebay. Check it out, there are always a ton of bargains on ebay. IMO, ibanez makes the least problematic floyd system, so I would stick wit...

The tuning/pitch return on all of my Jems is perfect. Now despite the fact that you dished out a ton of cash, problematic guitars have been known to fly through the Ibanez line inspection with flying colors. Whether, or not, you have used a floyd rose system before the first and foremost problem tha...

You shouldn't need 4 springs, 3 should do. If they are all in a straight formation l l l , then put them into arrow formation /l\ . Also I'd suggest checking out the tech section at ibanezrules.com ... Rich know's his sh*t ,hands down ,no contest. ...and then you can tighten the screws to an extent...
