Have you guys all noticed that the metal-look Jem Steve has in the Larry DiMarzio photo on the news page is NOT his Bad Horsie guitar?

is it possible that we've now seen the final production version of the Bad Horsie Jem?

Yep - that's the production model.

score!

sorry, i just noticed the commentary on this in the 'vai's new look' thread, but maybe it's more on topic here? who knows? who cares?

is it just me, or is it a less brilliant (as in shiny) finish to his prototype? it's difficult to tell from that photo, but it looks less mirrored, and more like brushed metal.

No - it's actually shinier - it like a mirror. The two previous Bad Horsie prototypes were slightly cloudy - especially the second prototype.

cool!!! that's exactly what i wanted to hear!!

i'll start saving up now! thanks man

any idea ROUGHLY how much it'll cost? i know that you probably can't say too much about it even if you know, but will it be a considerably different price to a vwh?

i will quit with the questions soon, promise!

I'm not exactly sure - but I think the price will be a little higher than a VWH.

aww shucks! i must own one of these as soon as they come out! i think i'll sell a kidney or something. they must fetch a pretty penny in some places! and it'd probably save money on beer!

now i just have to decide which guitar i'd trust someone enough to put a sustainer in: my signed, named VWH, or the BRCH.

decisions, decisions...

i've just noticed an 'official' Ibanez production Bad Horsie Jem listed on ebay, apparently sourced from japan.

they haven't even officially announced the thing yet surely? are they really already on sale over there?

It looks beautiful. I can already feel it in my hands.

The only thing worse than not having money to buy a certain guitar is being left-handed. It just makes it that much worse. But, you can always have Ed Roman make you an exact replica, but it'll cost you a price.

I wouldn't have Ed Roman make me anything except his own coffin.
Seriously, it's the worst place (and guy) to invest a penny into.
Try LGM or Eddie K (see both via jemsite.com or projectguitar.com) for true customer satisfaction and real quality work.
