...that I'm basically selling for him, and (mind you, I used to own a Jem), holy shit, this is a great fucking guitar!
Its an older (1998) Jem 7VWH, and despite the neck needing some adjustment, this thing is so fucking tasty. I don't remember my old 777 being anywhere near this good, granted that was quite a while ago. The neck is pre-skunk stripe bullshit and stiffer than any Ibby I've had, the tone (alder... mmmmm...) is defined and fantastic, and the playability pretty dern good (like I said, the neck needs a slight tilt back). I fail to understand why Ibanez can't apply this formula to more of their axes.
