SOLD Stunning 2001 IBANEZ JEM 7DBK + HARD-CASE + Tremolo Arm Made In Japan
This item has now SOLD. Don't miss out next time, join our mailing list and be the first to know before the public when a new Jem is listed!
We have for you an fantastic original 2001 7DBK. A jem that was extremely unique with its 3 dimensional textured paint similar to the 90th HAM Anniversary guitar launched the year before in 1998. These guitars were the bruisers of the jem world with many being destroyed through abuse and heavy playing. Whilst this example has been well loved and cherished by its previous owner it's in remarkably good condition for the year. A true, made in Japan 7DBK which are getting rarer with each year so if you have been on the fence for one, grab it while you still can before their value shoots out of reach. See the full guitar condition report below for details. These are increasingly more difficult to find good condition and here is your chance to grab one at an exceptional price! At time of writing the asking price is below that of any other comparable guitar.
More info about theJEM 7DBK -
The JEM7D is a JEM series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1999. It is a signature model of American guitarist Steve Vai. It replaced the JEM7 BSB as a new affordable but still Japanese made JEM. It was made by FujiGen.
Visually, the JEM7D borrows both from the JEM10th as well as from the JEM90HAM. It has the black finish and mirror pickguard of the JEM10TH, a look which would also be used for the JEM77V and JEM7EAFX. The JEM7D combines it with the structured body finish of the JEM90HAM and the screw head dot inlays of the JEM7 BSB.
The JEM7D is the first JEM with the DiMarzio Breed pickups. It also features a thinner neck compared to other JEM guitars. It initially had the Lo-Pro Edge tremolo which was replaced by the Edge Pro in 2003.
The JEM7D was discontinued after 2004.

Guitar Condition Report
This is the perfect guitar for someone who is looking to own a played but well looked after model of this very rare made in Japan guitar. A lovely example of the 2001 7DBK. There are signs of use and would rate this as a player guitar in a respectable condition throughout. the Hardware is in good condition throughout. Paintwork, as is the case with the soft basswood bodies of the DBK's absorb slight knocks and kinks and these are present along the outside edge. The guitar has the magic that only a quality gem build in Japan can have and the neck is absolutely beautiful to play highlighted via photo. An interesting quirk to this guitar you may notice on the rear which has a faint horizontal, hairline mark in the paint. This in no way effects the playability of the guitar and is completely stable but likely as a result of a humidity change/shrinkage at some stage in its life causing a parallel striation.
Please take a look at the HD pictures on here to confirm the condition for yourself. I have marked out in close up anything that should be of note to a potential collector/buyer.
Fret Life/Fretboard - This guitar has had some use, plenty of life in those frets,. The fretboard is exquisite with a stunning maple neck and a beautiful rosewood fingerboard with no obvious bumps or Knicks and feel great with the classic 7DBK profile.
Tremolo - A good finish with little signs of use. The owner must have cleaned down the guitar after each play to keep the condition of this. There is a very little discolouration indicative of use. Only the faintest of pitting, very subtle. This tremolo is in fantastic condition. A HD picture has been taken close up. Largely what you would expect from a well cared for, near 20+ year old guitar
Neck - Original Neck Straight with an good feel and grain. No cracks or wood problems. No stress fractures behind the nut.
Electronics - As you would expect, there are no known issues with electronics. Sounds like a dream, pickup selector snaps into place and these pick ups absolutely scream!
Body work- No huge issues with the 3D textured paint. As described there are marks along the outer edge where the soft wood has indented and these have been marked up but due to the 3D textured nature of the paint are very hard to spot. The hairline mark on the rear of the guitar is likely due to shrinkage at an earlier time and is stable with no impact on playability
Case - This guitar comes with a lovely Ibanez hard case indicative of the time in good condition, the latches function flawlessly. Only a minimal signs of ware from storage. Do check the pictures for exact condition
This guitar will have a basic setup (New strings, bridge height adjustment, Clean, Polish) if bought at asking price. However, no major adjustments such as truss rod/neck changes due to the rarity of the guitar. We would recommend this be done after you receive the guitar so that you can personalise your setup.
