Optics top, sound m ig

04.12.2016
First of all: I already have two Jems, with which I am super dissatisfied? A '93er 7VWH, which is extremely versatile, and a' 91er 77BFP with a rather "bluesy" basic character. Therefore this guitar should give me a supplement of the sound possibilities through the mahogany and the new pickups. And since she already had something on pictures, she was ordered shortly.

Unpacking and? Wow! The look is a la, the wood has a great grain, and the dashboard and head plate round off the whole perfectly. The workmanship is super, everything cleanly dressed. This can be expected in this price class, however.
Then the first surprise: The guitar is easy! Compared with my two old Jems much more comfortable on the shoulder. Definitely an advantage on the stage.

A first knock test showed that the wood sounds and resonates wonderfully. However, such resonance leads to an emphasis on certain frequencies. As a result, the sustain of different tones is significantly different. Deadspot has the guitar however none.

Before the opening, Ibanez (or Thomann?) Had first set the sweat? The setting was useless. The tremolo was tilted backwards; I had to adjust the spring tension and adjust the whole sensibly and tune. Then it could go.

When playing dry, you could see how loud the guitar was! A consequence of the above described resonances. Here one notices the different sustain.

For the amplified test one of the probably best amps was used, which one for money can buy? A Bogner Ecstasy 101B. This amp should pass the characteristics of each guitar unadulterated. And here came unfortunately the disillusionment: already clean became clear that the dissolution and separation of the Sait is not particularly good. Enhanced chords are washed out, especially the notes on the high strings quickly. Even with a little distortion, the whole thing sounds like a snotty, but little resolved. In all pickup positions.

On the other hand, the differences between the positions are rather small, for example in the case of my white jem, which offers an enormous variety from the bridge pickup board over ringing, stratified intermediate positions up to the creamy, singing neck pickup sound. This also considerably reduces the tonal diversity.

And the wood leaves? At least reinforced? Also no special character, who would say "aha, that is now mahogany". Is it the wood or the "Gravity Storm" pickups? Is it perhaps a series of streaks, and I just had bad luck? I do not know, but a sound enhancement does not represent this guitar for me.

Conclusion: The guitar brings me nothing, which my two old Jems can not significantly better. In terms of versatility nothing is to be fetched, and it does not show any particular sound characteristics. For this price is decided too little. Since synonymous the really great optics nothing? She goes back. Pity!
