*SOLD Ultra Rare Original Ibanez Jem 1989 7PBK + Ibanez Hard Case + Tremolo Arm
This guitar has now sold! Don't miss out again!! Click: Get Notified and every time a new Ibanez jem is listed you will get first look before it goes out to the public
Own a piece of guitar history. Something really quite special here. The Ibanez Jem 7PBK represents the very first incarnation of the Ibanez Jem model introduced in early 1989. You simply don't see these around very much due to their rarity. The 7PBK is a completely unique design compared to many of the later Jems and for collectors is particularly special due to being the only Ibanez jem ever produce to include disappearing pyramid inlays in white made from pure Pearl and Abalone. The 7PBK is mistakenly thought of sometimes as a prototype for the Ibanez Jem but this is not completely accurate and whilst the design of the Jem changed shortly after the production of the 7PBK and 7RB (Root Beer) this was a manufactured guitar, be it only for a very short time. This is a piece of Jem history and a beautifully unique looking instrument made from the absolute highest quality materials and build from the golden era of Jem manufacturing

Shockingly RARE First Model 1987 Ibanez Jem 777SK
Something really quite special here. The Ibanez Jem 7PBK represents the very first incarnation of the Ibanez Jem model introduced in early 1989. You simply don't see these around very much due to their rarity. The 7PBK is a completely unique design compared to many of the later Jems and for collectors is particularly special due to being the only Ibanez jem ever produce to include disappearing pyramid inlays in white made from pure Pearl and Abalone.

This is a piece of Jem history and a beautifully unique looking instrument made from the absolute highest quality materials and build from the golden era of Jem manufacturing
If your looking for a Jem that almost no other collector has or a Jem thats completely unique then this would the be the ideal guitar for you. Their rarity is compounded by the fact that very few were initially made and were only available for a limited time to only a select few areas.
The 7PBK was manufactured during the golden years of Ibanez guitar manufacturing at a time when Ibanez really had their work cut out making a name for themselves. As a result the attention to detail, build quality and materials used are some of the highest every produced during the Ibanez Jems long running history. This is a chance to own one of the very best guitars ever produced and a highly collectable guitar.
As you would expect the Jem 7PBK features all the best features of the Ibanez jem and this guitar features all the original components. The PAF Pro pickups are what make the Jem series scream and nothing has come close to the 80’s early 90’s sounds these pick ups produce. A wizard 1 piece maple neck with Brazilian rosewood fingerboard and basswood body really set this guitar apart. Like the JEM7 RB, the JEM7P has a wider monkey grip than all other Jems after this year.

The guitars history is a little unknown. For its year it has been kept in remarkably good condition and has been well cared for by the previous owner. Its last 10 years were spent in a hard case and rarely used.
Condition: Fit and Finish
This is a played condition 7PBK from 1989 with good conditioned hardware throughout for its year. There are some marks and playing scratches that have been detailed below. The guitar has been set up exceptionally well and play beautifully with a stunning raw sound that only the PAF pickups can produce. The Wizard neck and Brazilian rosewood fingerboard really makes this guitar feel sing
Fret Life/Fretboard - Fret-life is still strong with plenty of life left in them. No issues with the frets or fretboard, its guitar ready to be played.
Tremolo - A good finish, minimal blemishing with only some pitting present on the tremolo unit indicative of stand playing. Take a look at the close up pictures if in any doubt
Neck - Original Neck, Straight as an arrow with an incredible feel and grain. No cracks or wood problems on the rear or front. in fact this neck has an incredible grain in both the maple and rosewood. These old guitars can sometimes have issue with the nut end causing a crack (something to always watch for) but this guitar is solid and shows no evidence of abuse
Electronics - Sounds like a dream and these pick ups absolutely scream! You will not believe the power of these PAF Pros pickups
Body work- A silky Black and brilliant white combination is still bold and vibrant and incredibly vivid across the body. A number of body bruises on the front edge and outside edge along with some light playing scratching along the body , all photographed. some very small dings on the front body. Only 1 ding on the rear of the guitar on the edge in a place not normally viable that has revealed the underlying wood and is approximately 2cm in length.
Case - This guitar comes with the a lovely Ibanez hard Case in amazing condition. Only a few signs of ware from storageAll elements functional. Also comes with the original tremolo bar
