    I don't know how to shred, so can I still count my JEM?

    Cool guitars!

    I can't/won't shred either, but I really like the Ibanez design. I had one of the first floral Jems in the late 80's but stupidly sold it.

    Here's my 2000 RG470. Already had a Seymour Duncan Jazz and JB installed when I bought it. The original trem was shot so it got a Gotoh replacement. Also added a dark smoke pickguard to make the top pop a bit more. Colour is New Penny.

    I always wanted a Carvin, and I've always told myself that it would be my next guitar. I am such a liar!!!!! As long as there is a Craigslist, eBay, and Reverb that probably will never happen :(

    I got mine two days ago so it's never too late for you to replace it

    Mine doesn't go full shred as I have no whammy bar. Still a fun guitar. The wood finish keeps it from going full shred-age as well.

    Thanks! Too bad we can't "like" anything right now. :laugh2:

    This JB really does play like a dream, it's so fun to play.

    I want the whole Carvin experience. I want to go to the website, pick each piece, part, color, with painstaking attention to detail and even some second thoughts on EVERYTHING. I want to create a Carvin, not buy someone else's Carvin.

    I agree and it was a great experience for me. If you are lucky you can even get a glimpse of your guitar before it ships in their pics of the day one their facebook page. Since the company split into two separate companies and became Kiesel/Carvin Guitars they have stepped up their game even more.
