This is a 1998 Ibanez Jem555. Original it was black. It was stripped to partly "naturalish" by former owner. The guitar felt good in my hands at start, but - it didnt suit me so well soundwise - it did not marry well with a marshall amp in my ears. It was too "nice". I am sure the original pups, DiMarzio Evolution is great for shredders and Steve Vai kind of sound, but I tried put in a T-Top at the bridge, and a Tim Shaw in the neck position. NOW the guitar came alive... and marries well with a Marshall amp. The former shredderguitar has converted to a rockn´roll machine. Might still look like a metalguitar but sounds like a 70´s classic-hardrockguetarra.
Its a devil in disguise.

"Might still look like a metalguitar"

don't worry, it doesn't.

Metal guitars don't have flowers on the fretboard. :laugh2:

Congrats. I used to have one, (still do actually though it's 'naked',.no hardware. Been in storage almost 20 years)

They're good guitars.

Looks cool in natural. I sanded mine down too but then I wrote all over it.

Damn Kids and markers! :laugh2:
