Several sellers on ebay are saying that the 7VWH will be discontinued in 2006 and replaced with a newer model. :shock: :cry: I havent spoken with my local Ibanez dealer yet, but does anyone know if this is true?

I have not heard anything about this. But the model have been on
the market since 1993 so it's time must come one day.

I suspect that one seller said it in an attempt to sell their Jem like it was a rare item - soon to no longer be available, and the rumour stuck.

Never believe anything you read on the internet. (Except of course, what you read on Vai.com)... ;)

They should discontinue them. There have been about a million of them made and you see them 3 or 4 at a time on *bay. To stop production of them would make them more desireable. Then you could re-issue them later. Just as long as you have some other color for people to buy.

I cant see it being discontinued as it is/must be Ibanez biggest selling guitar...As Mikey said its a ploy to sell their Jem and somebody else jumped on the bandwagon.

Unless...it was a 2005 model and he meant it would be replaced in 2006 by the 2006 model ie 'a newer model'.

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"

I see the 7v on eBay right now and they are still bringing in the big bucks. I hear they are awesome guitars if you can get your hands on them. If I had the dough, I would buy one in a heartbeat!
