Hmmmm, lets see, for starters, Pin striping! Hand made everything! In Japan! a fixed bridge maybe, or a Bigsby! Haha, that would look huge and out of place, nevermind. Real F-hole(s). Bright red would be sweet. Piezo in the bride and a blend thingy! Tape On the bride pickup, put there by Steve! Ok, ok, i will stop, this is turing out horrible...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! (On Ibanez, anyway)

Oh well. I guess I have wait to scratch up the dough for a 10th in good shape.

Or Neville if it ever goes back up for sale for real. I'd probably trade a kidney for that one.

My idea that was posted in the 50k celebration was used as the 20th anniversary model

I mentioned it in the clear body ideas portion of my post click the link below:

The concept for the 20th was devised before we announced the 50K Celebration. In fact, Ibanez worked on R&D for this guitar for a while to achieve the effects seen in the final production model.

The 50K celebration has now morphed into the "Design a Jem" contest to celebrate the sale of the 77,777th Jem sol.

Peace,

- Also a special 50k Jem Anniversery concert would be cool with some Ibanez All-Star performances. Have that show video taped of course and maybe together with a documentary of the evolution of the Jem over the years or in combination with that "Vai is building a guitar" event together. :wink:. Also a information menu with all the JEMs listed with infos and specs etc on that Dvd.
HA! Great idea! I just finished my documentary of building my first guitar (What a coincidence!) http://www.virgilguitar.com/video.html
