Audiofanzine FR's review

Ibanez JEM77B
(Originally written by Vehuel/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Custom shop Ibanez Prestige Series made in Japan by the J.CRAFT TEAM.

24 frets, HSH pickup combination with DiMarzio Breed. I installed a Sustainer FSK401 and it changed lots of things (I will never use the Breed in the neck again). 5-way toggle switch.

Incredibly smooth Ibanez Edge Pro bridge. It must be correctly adjusted to avoid any detuning but it's a real delight to use it!

VERY effective volume control that allows you to control the distortion of the amp. It saved me several times when I didn't have a footswitch.

Tone control that allows you to darken the sound to get Vai's smooth solo sound .

Very flat neck, I believe it's thinner than the 7V neck! That's why I prefer playing the 7V, it fits my hand better, but I miss the life tree inlay!! Why didn't they use that inlay?

Otherwise everything is great! ;) Great job Ibanez


As I already said, the neck feels very pleasant but it depends on the size of your hands ;)

I have very long hands so I prefer the Jem7 neck. I'm glad that the last frets aren't scalloped because that reduces the sustain on the 7V!

Perfect access to the upper frets, as usual with Ibanez ;).

Perfect weight (light limewood). Very ergonomic RG body that's very comfortable to play sitting down and standing up, it's sweet!!

Great sound :D It blows me away every time! Incredible clean sound. The neck/mid position allows ultra clean arpeggios!

Every pickup has its advantage and the distortion sound is superb!

Especially because mine has a sustainer... :D


Yes, it's my life :D


I've been playing it for one week and I'm overjoyed!!

I love the perfect mirror finish! It looks classy and modern at the same time! I hope it still looks good after several years!! =)

Ibanez JEM77B
MODEL Prestige, made by Team Craft in Japan
24 frets, Dimarzio pickups two doubles and a single Dimarzio BREED BREED
Volume, Tone selector micro
A good real Floyd Rose.
I have the version with a fully chromed body throws a max.


The handle is a perfect glide alone! trs trs practice round late!
Access in acute is a breeze even j'usqu'aux last fret, I almost feel that it's cheating when I play .
trs form is enjoyable, the relatively lightweight.
Some purists prferent the sound of old microphones Steve Vai but I hang myself with too BREED.


I play Rock / Metal / Progressive amp on a Marshall Vintage Modern has its own password (the sound of the Roh ...). I of course bought for his saturated.
The sound is clean but I also own trs prfre even when one of my Start.


I use it for three weeks and I am satisfied.
I love everything about this guitar by fingerprints on the body because all I MODEL chrome (mirror).
I tried several guitars, jackson, esp for and I'm sure I made the right choice on this one.
The report any qualitprix little about what kind of guitar since 2300 so it's expensive, but the purchase of a life
This is an exceptional guitar for me.

Ibanez JEM77B
- How many frets, what kind of micro as well as their configuration?

24 cases. Say anything

- What type of bridge (Floyd, Wilkinson ...)?

A good big edge pro. Floyd the cream level. You can attack the extreme, the agreement will always respect.

- What are the rglages (Volume, Tone slecteur micro ...)?

One volume, one tone and 5 positions. One little thing, must admit that the tone is not used much. Put as much background as below it sounds pretty dull.


- The handle is it enjoyable?

The best that I've jou up Submitted. It is a vritable highway, incredible comfort.

- Access in acute (dernires freight) is it easy?

It would be difficult to make it easier. Not only is it easy to ACCS, but mostly it sounds effortless. Trs great job.

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?

Lgre guitar, excellent grip seated as standing. Nothing wrong.

- Gets it easy to sound good? ...

The Di Marzio breed do their job. The scratching is thundering versatility. We can not prs type in all styles. I'm surprised I even play blues and funk. It is true that the bridge pickup and intermdiaires positions require a little more time to adapt. They apprcie least at first, must learn to know and make adjustments in consquence.


- Appropriate are your style of music?

Well it seems to me empty, it is not achte a jem to play jazz is to play the Vai. And it knows how to do it perfectly.

- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?

Unfortunately, it is home to a branch epiphone valve junior is not really built for ca. Only advantage I add a good menatone Workingman blue and here must ca. I get all sound research without any worries.

- What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?

Hmm ... our answer difficult. It varies normment a microphone the other. Résumé to the neck pickup is round trs, trs hot. The single is much more flashy, trs funk in the spirit. The bridge is not against far more garish.


- How long have you use it?

Soon 1 year

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?

Plus: Everything, really everything, especially his mouth
The least: I'm still looking. It's perfect.

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

Vigier, musicman, jem Mount micro evo, jackson ... I really the flash on it. A pearl

- How do you report qualitprix?

It is not given but it is on is well worth its price ca. No scam, if you like steve vai to love this one can not scratch.

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...

Without hsitation. I became a lover of jem. The next will arrive on time.

Ibanez JEM77B
Everything has already been said.


- The handle is it enjoyable?
Excellent, the handle is very thin, access to acute is perfect, the guitar is very light.


- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
I played on a Vox AC15 and I boost saturation with a Rocktron Metal Planet Distortion produces a very modern.
It goes quite well with the more vintage sound, but in this area is not what qui'il best.
Ibanez has released a double distortion dedicated to the JEM, have to see.

- What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
This is a guitar produces sounds pretty versatile round neck position with the micro crystalline or simple. The sound is very modern but a bit cold.
I can not find the micro bridge was screaming, however personally I think his strength is to keep a high homogeneity of serious acute and a very good definition at any level of distortion.
But with several other high-end guitars, when I play on the JEM I can not help to bridge the micro and all the knobs to the bottom, it's that it gets to live and explodes all that exists .
It is made for distortion and acrobatic solos, it is magic for ca, the total growing stock.

- What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
I prefer the distortion in the bridge position. I do not hate.


- How long have you use it?
I for 1 year.
- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
You can play what you want from the subtle to villain.
- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Clearly is a guitar that will not support any weak link in your installation.
- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
yes, many others.
- How do you report qualitprix?
very good.
- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes without hesitation.
