Man, I was watching some Steve Vai stuff today and im drooling when I see his JEM. At the moment I have a Fender strat and it's cool, I like it.. ^^ But I love these floyd rose wammys, and I'm thinking of getting a JEM perhaps. Ok, the question..: Pavel, Andrew, and everyone that owns a JEM, Is it that great? Why is it so great? Can you use it for more heavy stuffs also? And should I buy one? ^^ huh.gif blink.gif

I would like one, but I haven't seen one for sale in Australia yet. It's so damn expensive to get from America! Perhaps a second handy one off Ebay

It's great for heavy stuff!! I already said it is not abut guitar - it's about your amp and pedals! Chris Impellitteri gets killer metal sound with his Strat on his amp so it a proof guitar has almost nothing to do with heaviness of your sound!

Also guitar player from band "Dominici" plays some crazy drop C tunings on a JEM and his sound is also amazing! smile.gif

Yeh Pavel, good point but you know, single coil... you can't really get that super heavy sound out of it. smile.gif And I also love floyd rose. You can't do all the whammy stuff with a strat, that why I am thinking of getting me a JEM. smile.gif

Jeff Beck proves that you can get real heavy on a strat, and whammy the hell out of it too.

Chris Impellitteri is also a good example of very heavy sound on Strat! But anyway - if you get a JEM you won't regret that! smile.gif

Just for the Record.

14,000 sweden kronor is Equal to $2,106.43 US Dollars. Which is about what most JEMs cost in the USA.

I saw (and played) on at Allans Music in Melbourne, and while I can see that the Jem is brilliant, I'm not so sure it's $4300 worth of brilliance... sad.gif
