Actually, now I prefer the new JSBlackdog over this one.


Does Ibanez have any Baritone guitars still? :(

1: black and chrome, exactly the same as the 77? pretty uncreative
2: of course the shit looking decal/hierogylph/thing too, hopefully the decal looks better in person, but its hard for that to be true when the design itself is pretty bad

Um.....
It's not a trem.
It's a hard tail.
Meaning it has no trem.
Meaning it's a hard tail.

Well i just don't see anything inovative and new...(that's exactly what Jems used to be)


It's a hard tail = no locking nut.

Not my cup of tea....

I say, if it's a JEM, keep it a JEM.
That means make it innovative and different.
If it's a hard tail, fine. But at least make some improvements on what's already out there.
And, for future reference, Ibanez, DON'T PUT BIG CHEEZY DECALS ON THE BODY OF A GUITAR THAT YOU EXPECT PEOPLE TO TAKE SERIOUSLY.

Here's my thought:

Give it the sustainer.
That that would up the innovation of it and maybe make it somewhat desirable.
