    This is a first year 1993 Ibanez Jem 7 VWH. I bought this guitar in Tokyo in the Ginza district on 18 Sep 1993 (see tag below). This one has literally been all around the world with me, it was my first 'serious guitar' but my tastes have changed to narrower and fatter neck carves and vintage style guitars. I simply don't play it enough to justify keeping it, it needs to be played.

    What can I say, it is exactly how I bought it except for many many string changes. There is some worming on the back and some very minor dings here and there, nothing through the paint and nothing I could get in a photo. It has none of the problems that can often be found on these, no cracks behind the locking nut, no neck joint finish cracks, it's rock solid. It comes with the case the shop provided, the original tool kit and the original receipt as shown. The guitar is set up well and plays perfectly. If you look closely the neck even has some flame going on in the maple.

    ** Price drop (1/15/19) - $2000 shipped (overseas contact me first).

    I never measured it but it is a thin flat neck, not super thin but on the thinner side. The VWH is thinner than the original 777 necks with a flatter profile, but not quite as thin as the DBK or DNA.
