The reaper - 0:27 - 0:35. Talk about an explosion! :X AL DiMeola featuring Steve Vai - Race with an alien on an arabian desert - 3:25 - 3:28. It's a three second lick that's just killer! Still don't know what the hell he's doing. Tender Surrender - 3:10 - 3:25. Fnck Yourself - 4:13 - 8:27. Four minu...

Kevan, do you always have to be rude? Seriously... Anyhow, I'll accept the fact that the sustainer idea is not going to happen when I hear Ibanez or Steve say so. It's far fetched, but not impossible. Until then, I think that people should spout out their ideas, no matter how wild, regardless of wha...

It's easy. He's playing each note four times with four different fingers. It's just a visual illusion. It makes it look like he's playing a lot more than he really is. Just start with your pinky on the 5th fret on the high e string. Play that note then slide your ring finger to that fret. Play the n...

A new Jem is always welcom, but what about a Concert in Central Park with any Jem owner to bring their Jems for a 50,000 huge photo with Steve in the middle? Cheers Stefano Hahaha, that's actually a pretty neat idea, but i'm sure it wouldn't happen. I think that's the most original and exciting ide...

I wouldn't let other people's opinions affect your guitar playing decisions. Screw 'em. Who cares if it's a signature guitar? I would never stop playing a guitar because it's a signature guitar.

I wasn't sure if I liked my 7VWH for a while because it was so different from anything i'd ever played. It was only when I played other guitars again did I realize how much I loved the feel of the Jem's neck, the monkey grip :) and things of that nature. Although it has a steep learning curve if you...

It was originally put there so Steve could hold his guitar above his head while he does wicked legato runs. Coincidentally, Steve usually grabs the upper bout of the guitar instead of using the Monkey Grip for what it was made for! I personally find the monkey grip surprisingly helpful! I use it all...

I basically 100% agree with Dave's comment here. That DVD idea is GREAT and Dave gave some great ideas for material that could be used. Also, the mirror jem with a sustainer would not only be NEW - and not some remake - but it would be a WICKED addition to the Jem line-up. Nice goin', davester! :P i...

Super! I would love to see another series of Jems! Who wouldn't?! Here's the order of my votes: 1- Release the mirror finished Jem... PLEASE! I was just watching the London DVD and this guitar is AMAZING looking. It'd also be a completely new addition to the Jem line-up. Not only that, but it'd turn...

Steve had the Green Meanie well before that time. Didn't his mother buy it for him when he was 15 and he started hacking it to pieces?

Can someone (Mikey) please specify whether this is going to be a one off guitar, or is Ibanez looking to launch a new commemorative series of Jems?

I have a new favorite song every 20 minutes or so, but right now it'd have to be one of these three:

Pink Floyd - Welcome to the Machine
Mozart - Requiem
Mozart - 5th symphony

All perfection.
