    Default NGD!!!

    So, I found out about these Ibanez Jem Jr's a few weeks back and after finding out that a Ibanez Edge trem fits in it perfectly, I ordered one the next day. It arrived here yesterday and its a great guitar. If anybody here has ever played one of the cheap Ibbys, you will know how crappy the cheap trems are, but the trem in this kind of feels like a Floyd Rose Special trem. Its not bad at all. I have a spare Edge trem here (thats one of the reasons I bought this to swap them out), but I'm thinking of leaving it as is.

    The neck is wide and thin, but feels extremely new, but once its worn in a bit, it will feel great. The inlays look fantastic, better than the top self Jems

    Pups aren't great and will be going and I also plan on doing as swirl paint job on it soon but all in all its a great guitar, especially for the price. $674 AUD, brand spanking new.... I bought it purely for a project guitar but its good enough just as it is.

    Definitely worth checking out

    I dropped a deposit on a Ibanez Paul Stanley PS120 too

    The desert yellow Jems were sweet. I loved all the original Jems. I had a 77FP for about 16 years, but I sold it about 5/6 yrs ago to buy a Les Paul.

    Great looking guitar.



    I not really into floating guitar either these days, but at this price, it was too good to pass up. I'm not 100% on what I'm going to do with it, but I'll do something
