Handpainted Guitars…

When I started doodling with art, I decided to paint a few Jem bodies and the colorful guitar I used in the “Dark Mater” video was one of them. 

I’ve painted 4 guitar bodies so far. Two were Ibanez Strat style guitars I did some years ago for the “Experience Hendrix” tour. 

One of them, “Girly”, is used quite a bit on tour these days. It’s tuned down a whole step so I use it on songs like “Gravity Storm”, and “John the Revelator”.  

The other one is “Cherry Blossoms” and was raffled off on the Story of Light tour for charity. Someone won it for a dollar, but we raised about $15k for the “Make A Noise Foundation”.

Also shown below is the guitar used in the Dark Matter video, and another Jem called  “Be With the Note”.

Awesome! My wife just finished her breast cancer treatment and during all of it she was getting so much pink stuff that I went and got me something pink! Wanted an Ibanez since I was 13.

I love my Jem Jr. Gonna probably get the Pink and Yellow ones soon. Hoping they'll release the green w/ the pyramid inlays. That would be killer.

I have a Jem Jr. Gonna do a swirl paint job on it soon.

"When I grow up, I'm gonna be a famous Rock 'n Roll guitar player. And this is my whammy bar. And it's gonna be loud ♥️ ♥️ ✌️✌️

I have one too! :D amazing guitar, can never get enough of it!

That guitar is AWESOME!

I'll stick with my Ibanez JS140, but they are some of the best guitars out there..

I tried one at GC, as well. I could not believe how well it played. The pickups, neck, trem, hardware, finish... everything. It made my Christmas list in classic yellow.

the most beautiful thing in the world... and the girl very lovely too.

is she your daughter? She is lovely. Think of her as good as her father.

Reminds me of your songs ya-yo gakk.

They do make lil 3/4 sized electric guitars. My son had a black Squire Stratocaster. And they have Flying V's. That was 10 years ago, so probably alot more options nowadays.

Love that they kept the trem on the jemjr

I love the look of concern on the face of the gentleman at the rear of the store 🤣 ~ Fantastic though!

That's some good parenting and that's a beautiful girl. ROCK ON!

That’s a beautiful little girl holding a beautiful Gem guitar!!!!😍🎸😍

How do you compare the Jr series with the regular ones?

wow..i wish i have one of an ibanez jem guitar but there are nothing selling here in the Philippines and it is very expensive,i cant afford it...i wish someone out there who is willing to give me one as early christmas gift...plz pm me..my dream guitar!!!

Got my gf the same one! It is a great guitar!

Maybe Ibanez could offer their sustain module as an aftermarket upgrade, but it offers the extreme end of “flexuality”.

Sweeet!! This is heart warming for sure! 👍👍

i think you should make another Jem series just like the ones you use live but add a volume an tone control to each set of pickups. that way you can much like an EQ pick the best overall tone setting for the pickups you chose to use then you can dial in how loud those tones are in the over all mix. i am inclined to believe this would help fatten up the sound of the smaller strings but i don't know that for sure. can't hurt to experiment.

Just have the regular white jem Jr pictured here with my jem555 bk. Love that guitar. Frog ballou Spook.guitarist

The great ones always start at an early age. I wish I would have got a guitar when I was a child instead of being told to shut up and be quiet. 😄

Louise Post let us all hear how she gets on!
