ive always thought the 10th Anniversary Jem is hot. It's pretty pricey too
I wouldn't spend that on any guitar...
Play one first before you buy. I checked one out at the Philly guitar show a couple of years ago and really wanted to like it but it took about three seconds, unplugged, to realize it was a dog. Maybe it was just a bad one (it's the only one I've ever played) but it just felt dead in my hands.
I like the way Ibanez guitars and bass guitars play. I have a few of them, and just flat out have nice necks and great fret access.
They also have some nice beefy pickups.
I just grabbed a little Ibanez Mikro (3/4 scale) as a Christmas gift for my brother's kids. I played it quite a bit while tweaking the setup. It plays and sounds great, and a whole damn lot of fun!
But none of these are $10K guitars. Heck, I want an R8 and can't get myself to spend the $3-4K needed for that.
I had an RG550 back in the late 80s-early 90s. It was a great guitar. Cost me $390 brand new.
It looked like this. Lazer Blue...
Where's my eye-bleach?!
Good advice, Rich. I have read that they feel "different."
I would probably end up with the MIC version since it is all that's really available. And > $500, used.
Why pay $10k for a new JEM when you can pay $12k for an old Artist?
Right on Brother
I also had this exact model, same color, back then.
Very nice guitar......a real rocker on stage.
Reasonably stable as well.
They still come up for sale once & awhile on EBay.
I still have an old beat to sht Jem with a vine inlay in storage from about 23 years ago. I keep saying, "one of these days" I'll put it back together.
...any day now.
I really like that, seriously.
Thats' nothing for Ibanez.
I’ve got an RH450DX in white. Nice guitar but the thin neck drives me batshit.
Sorry, I'm saving my $10,000 for an Ernie Ball:
Does Vai care about sustain? Has he ever played a whole or half note?
As long as he has a fan blowing his hair while he plays, I don't think he cares.
And room to hula-hoop his guitar.
I have a Jem (owned 3, but sold/traded the other 2), and an RG550. My Jem's have played and sounded great, but I realized I don't really need more than 1 of them.
I also have a J. Custom, which is also a really great guitar (to me it was worth every penny I paid for it).
Those Universes look cool, but there's no way I'd buy one of them. I'm pretty sure they were aimed at collectors considering they had very limited numbers.
10000$ is way to much for any electric guitar.
But the JEM is an amazing model. You can play anything on those.
You must be joking.
You need a sustainer to play that. A Les Paul would fall short.
