I'm 35, been playing for 20+ years....and I've always been an Ibanez guy. I finally got my hands on a beautiful Les Paul Custom, and I have fallen completely in love. Here's my problem...I had always wanted the Ibanez Jem 7v. Finally got it about 4 months ago. I wish I had that purchase back. Now, I got it for a fantastic price, brand new, but it feels like a toy now. I am battling with just eating it, selling it, and getting another Les Paul. SOMEONE TALK ME DOWN!

You sir are in the wrong place to be talked out of buying a Les Paul.

Go to myibanez.com and post this thread there.

My two cents, sell the Ibanez and get a LP!

Keep the Ibanez. Just screw one of these to the back and she'll feel better.
