Near Mint Ibanez Jem 1991 77FP Floral Guitar
Something really quite special here. The Ibanez Jem 77FP represents one of the very first incarnation of the Ibanez Jem model introduced in the early 1990’s.
The 77 Floral Guitars are all incredibly rare, amazing and beautiful instruments. With 2 variants the FP was was discontinued over 12 years ago. This particular model was built in the early 90’s when Jem manufacturing was at its peak in quality also referred to as the “Golden years” of guitar making . This particular FP features the classic first generation Edge Tremolo System, the one still used today by Steve Vai . Jim Dunlop 6100 fret wire, Fluorescent Green Vine inlays, 1-Piece Maple neck and rosewood fingerboard with the original “JEM” neck profiling (this later changed in 2001) and the screaming DiMarzio PAF Pro pickups. The beautifully retro design is actually real fabric based on Steve Vai’s classic curtains, pressed into the wood and lacquered. No easy feat when you consider the potential creasing that can occur working with fabric.
Many of the old FP’s were played to death and finding a rare guitar like this in this condition is virtually unheard of.
Privileged to offer this exceptional 77 Floral Pattern Jem in an unbelievable condition. This guitar looks to have been barely played with very fews signs of wear on the guitar. See below for a detailed report on the exact condition
You simply don't see many of these models around very much anymore and they are usually completely modified. The 77FP is a completely unique design compared to many of the later Jems and is a prized addition for any collector

Condition: Fit and Finish
Its hard to get better than this one. Not many signs of playing wear, minimal fret wear, nice low action across the entire radius of the fretboard and a new set of strings ready to rock. Please take a look at the 25 HD pictures on here to confirm the condition for yourself.
Fret Life/Fretboard - This guitar has had very light use, plenty of life in those frets,. The fretboard is exquisite with a stunning maple neck and a beautiful rosewood fingerboard
Tremolo - Still with a fantastic finish, Almost no blemishing and no pitting on the tremolo unit. There is a very faint indentation indicative of light wear, more on the low E side of the tremolo. A HD picture has been taken close up, very minimal in nature
Neck - Original Neck Straight as an arrow with an incredible feel and grain. No cracks or wood problems. There are NO neck pocket cracks on this guitar! A very common problem that this one unbelievably doesn't suffer from
Electronics - As you would expect in a near mint instrument there are no issues with electronics. Sounds like a dream, pickup selector snaps into place and these pick ups absolutely scream!
Body work- This is where the guitar really shines, quite literally. The body work is in exceptional condition and looks stunning. We have had to inspect every inch of this guitar to find only a few tiny marks. There are some light playing marks on the guitars finish 1 tiny chip in the upper horn edge (less than 1cm diameter) and 2 tiny indentations in the finish on the edge lacquer deep all photographed and very tiny imperfections in a guitar of this age and quality, its quite remarkable!
Case - This guitar comes with the a lovely hard case in reasonable condition, the latches function but are a little bent out of shape so need some force to close correctly and 1 latch is missing. Case still functions fine. Only a minimal signs of ware from storage

Lanier Jem 777SK
"Hi Rex What can I say?
What an amazing guitar. I can't believe the condition its in after all these years. I sold mine many years ago to fund a Jem DNA and this is in even better nick than that one. Thank you for making the purchase effortless”
"I had been searching the internet for a decent used Jem for a while but was reluctant to purchase such an expensive guitar without seeing and playing it. The same with getting stuff off ebay without playing/seeing it….risky business!
I then came across sellmyjem.com and found a gorgeous V70 in sea foam green. The site is great…..loads of info and some of the best photos of used guitars I’ve ever seen…….proper Jem pornography!
The photos and write up for the V70 were fabulous and it was obvious that this seller loves his Jems!
Although I had been looking for a 7VWH I was really taken with the colour of this model. I checked out the specs on the Ibanez site and was a little worried to discover this model is made in Indonesia and not Japan so I contacted Rex from sellmyjem.com and we discussed the guitar at length……his knowledge of the Jem models was superb and being a great guitarist himself he understands how they feel and play. He assured me that the V70 was a cracking guitar and the quality from Indonesia was great……especially at the price.
I ordered it on a Wednesday evening and it was delivered Friday with Rex given me updates throughout its journey!
I can tell you now …… this V70 model is awesome. The pickups are smoking hot and the Edge trem is bloody insane! I don’t care that this thing was made in Indonesia it looks and plays amazing! It is also one of the most beautiful guitars I’ve ever seen…..the sea foam green with the tree of life inlay has to be seen in the flesh to be fully appreciated.
The description given on sellmyjem.com was also spot on……it said immaculate and that is exactly what it was. You couldn’t tell it wasn’t new.
I’m still looking for a 7VWH and won’t be getting it anywhere else but sellmyjem.com!
Thanks to Rex for your help and advice……..I couldn’t be happier……unless you could make my fingers quicker too!"
Ibanez Jem Ibanez JEM 77FP Specifications
The JEM77 FP was introduced in 1988, one year after the initial introduction of the JEM series. It was available in the US until 1999 but returned in 2003 as the 15th Anniversary JEM77FP. Outside the US it never was discontinued and remained in production from 1988 through 2004. With its 17 years of production, it was the longest running JEM model until it got surpassed by the JEM7V in 2009.
The JEM77 FP was only the first floral pattern JEM, a second one was introduced in 1988 as the JEM77 BFP and a third one in 2010 as the JEM77 FP2.
The Floral Pattern finish of the JEM77 is created with actual floral pattern cloth on the body and headstock. The fabric is glued to the body, the edges are painted black and then fully clear coated. The actual pattern cloth was modeled after the curtains from Steve Vai's parent's home.
