Sold at Juliens Auctions proceeds donated to Make a Noise Foundation JEM7RB Rootbeer.
Manufactured in 1988, 1989.

Another prototype guitar, Ibanez marketed this “Rootbeer” finish model for a

few years. It features a grip more similar to the old Jem guitars built by

Joe Despagni in the early to mid 80’s, shared in the Ibanez family only by

the Ibanez Jem 7P. It is also the only early Jem guitar with ordinary dot

markers on the fingerboard.


This particular guitar has white tape along the bottom and back of the

headstock. Interestingly, it also has a weight attached to the back of the

headstock. Despite its age, the guitar remains in excellent condition.
