Last night I recieved my first Ibanez Jem. It is a Jem7VSBL. It is absolutly amazing and like man have said no picture online has ever done this guitar justice. It is beautiful. and I like the looks on it better the the 7vwh or just about any jem...(except the anniversary models, dna's etc etc ;)) I have been playing it all day and it rocks I just need to get used to the inlays

When I look at the guitar when I play it throws me off a little seeing the inalys vs dots. Same thing happened when I scalloped my frets on the other guitar (frets 19-24). Anyway it is a great guitar.

Thanks Vai for making the Jem :) :lol:

I am the kind of guy that believes that guitars should be played. That is what they are for. Wether they are worth thousands or $ the heck out of them...just be more careful with the expensive one :)

I'll have pics up by tonight hopefully

I played her for almost 2 hours last night...without even being plugged in. I just held her in my arms

I named her Braye btw...she just looks like a Braye to me...I wrote her name on the back of the headstock with a I do all my guitars

Cool guitar

Nice guitar Junebug! I also read in a previous post of yours that you are gonna pick up a Mesa Stereo 2:Fifty to go with your MP-1. That is my exact setup (I also have a VHT GP-3 preamp) and it absolutely smokes! I think you'll enjoy it :D

I would...down the to pick up a triaxis off ebay though...I can't afford one new...What do you think of the VHT preamp?

and yeah I really want the 2:50. I saw a new one with the new style in guitar center the other day for $900...when I talked to Mesa they said it was 600 or was it 699? anyway...what is up with that I thought you had to sell mesa at the same price everywhere

hey Emerson, there's a leftie of the Jem555.......Steve has one, check out the photos of his axes! 8)

I still prefer the 7vWH. Man I gotta get it signed some time.

Yeah, too right, play the hell out of it! If you're not gonna play an amazing standard guitar, there;s no point having it, unless you're too rich to be worth knowing, or are given one each time the model line comes out!
