I picked up this guitar two weeks ago and cant put it down. When I first saw it in my local Sam Ash I didn't realize it wasn't a full fledged JEM. They had this one parked between the 7-String 7V7 and the 70V. I just thought it was a plain white version. I've been playing for over 25 years and I was blown away by this guitar. Ive owned Jacksons, Charvel's, Gibson's and two Joe Satriani guitars and this does not let you down. If you don't have the cash for the real deal JEM I assure you that you WILL NOT be disappointed with this ax. It looks GREAT, the neck is FAST and thin, the sound is incredible even for stock Ibanez pick ups. The bridge isn't a five star, but I would give it a solid four because you really need to wrench it around to get it to pull out of tune. I'm just going to upgrade it one piece at a time but overall you will not find you better guitar in this price range!
