    I love most of the jems I have had the 77FP,77DY
    7WH and the 77VDY and funny thing is I liked them all, and I will have one like you just ordered again. I have the 555 WH I have tuned down and use for "Bad Horsie" so I need another to play the regular tuned stuff.

    That makes my black Wofie Standard look like shit......and probably sound like shit....

    That red fuckin' rocks!!!

    BTW....does the posting of a red guitar mean that Sammy's coming back?????
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    Rol, when my guitar arrives form the factory will I need to make major adjustments. Should the trem and action be the best it should be from the factory. I want action as low as it can go.

    that is a very very tricky question, what defines the "best it should be from the factory?" what I mean is my best and your best could be very very different, I like medium action but my "medium"
    could be your ungodly high.

    Evertime I ship a guitar out I get nervous, before a guitar goes out my door it's set to "my" best meaning what sound and playability I like, but as I said before the person recieveing that guitar may think it plays and sounds like shit,
    the jems that I have had all came with what I think is too low of action and I raised them all.

    Now with saying that the guys at Ibanez should set up a guitar by lowering the strings till they buzz then back 'em off, but where that buzz point is could be very different from guitar to guitar and with the high production of Ibanez I bet it is, so there is no way I can really answer that only your hands can [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I'm up, I'm up! Rol, how's that 555? I've heard mixed reviews about that one, but since you seem to have some good experience in Jemology how's it compare to the more expensive models? Did you have to mod anything on it/replace any parts? I recently saw a pic of Vai actually using a 555 with Flo written behind the bridge like on his 7VWH that has Evo written behind it.

    I've never had my hands on a JEM, but I really like the Ibanez JPM models they were making a few years ago. At one time that was a dream guitar of mine. Presently, I have no dream guitar in mind and my bank account thanks me!

    my honest opinion here, the 555 once it's setup the way you like it is a damn fine guitar, I would buy one used as opposed to new they go in the $550 range, a used Jem 7vwh will still cost a grand and I can't see owning one over a 555 other than pride, the pickups even for being the dime a dozens version sound kick ass the big boy has the Evolutions in them and I think these pickups sound better anyway, the guitar is very versitile although I do not like the center pickup alone it's way to week and it must be used in conjuntion with one of the other humbuckers, the body is alder same as the big boy and it doesn't have all the gold hardware and the vine on the neck is shorter, all stuff just for looks.
    I would have no problem refering one to somebody
