Indeed, that one in your second link looks real enough:

It's real and it belonged to Steve, but it's not the new Jem. Here's my story about it on my blog:

Unless Rich and some other folks over at Jemsite is pulling our legs, I am afraid that is the real thing.

I would love for this to be misdirection on the part of Ibanez' and SSV's crews.

For The LOVE OF GOD, let it be so...

I agree. I had my doubts until I saw Rich's post confirming it.

So i is a Hard Tail ;). I really wonder what Steve is going to use it for.

But: It doesn´t have a Piezo :(. I also think the green one would have been nice. Maybe there´s going to be 2 colours :P. Anyway, if I needed a Hard Tail guitar, I think I´d go for a Paul Gilbert model. Already have a JEM and no other could replace it :).

i actually love the look of it!
but i doubt ill buy a guitar without a tremolo. plus the tremolo is part of steve's style, so it'll be interesting to see how he adapts his playing to suit a hardtail

Dude, that guitar looks beautiful. Think of the versatility of it. ALL the tones of a "regular" Jem, with the added sustain of a hard tail. I am assuming it is string through body. I am chomping at the bit to check one out @ the local "geetar" store.
Peace. :guitar

Peace. :guitar
It is a string through body. The guitar has the Tight End bridge on it, which is the same one on Ibanez FR models. You change the strings like on a Telecaster. At first I was expecting a simple fixed bridge like on RG fixed models, but this one looks much better.

Nothing. That one just isn't a hard tail, it's a strat-style Jem hybrid.

Of course as an artist you can never please everybody at all points (as usual), but I like the looks of the new guitar! :wink:

"What does it matter decanter, provided that we have ecstasy."
If it is prolongation of his soul and instrument of his mind.

Sorry for this approximate translation of Musset. :?
