JEM7VWHL - LEFTY!!!!! Ibanez only does these Limited Special Lefty runs every 5 years or so, and even if you have to stretch to make this purchase I would advise you do it. Everything will be exactly the same as the right hand VWH [except obviously being left handed], same case, same package, but at a premium of course. Listing at $4266.65.

GUITARS IN STOCK IDENTIFIED BY SERIAL NUMBER - SPECS AND DETAILS BELOW

JEM7VWHL's were produced at a time when the JEM7V's were transitioning from guitars that would barely intonate [second version guitars -  the first version of this problem, the guitars would not intonate on the low E string and had horrible conflicting overtones] to guitars that were normal. There was no rhyme to the serial umber as the issue was in the body, and as the necks didn't seem to be pulled in any order, or the bodies were still hit and miss, there is no way to identify the good guitars except to do a full setup with strobe intonation set to physically check that the guitars are normal.

ALL OF THE GUITARS BELOW HAVE BEEN SETUP AND STROBE INTONATED WITH PICTURES OF THE SADDLE ALIGNMENT TO SHOW THE NORMAL INTONATION PATTERN. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU DO NOT PURCHASE ANY VWHL WITHOUT KNOWING THE GUITAR HAS BEEN STROBE INTONATED COMPARATIVE 5 AND 17TH FRET, WITH PROOF THAT THE INTONATION PATTERN IS NORMAL. OTHERWISE YOU ARE VERY LIKELY TO GET A BAD GUITAR. THE LAST PICTURE IN THE PHOTO BANKS WILL BE THE PICTURE OF THE SADDLE ALIGNMENT OF THAT PARTICULAR GUITAR. TO REPEAT, ALL OF THESE VWHL'S ARE GOOD GUITARS WITH NORMAL INTONATION AND NORMAL OVERTONES ON THE WOUND STRINGS IN THE SECOND HALF OF THE SCALE. EXAMPLES OF BOTH SHOWN AFTER THE GUITARS.

BAD INTONATION WITH THE LOW E SADDLE PUSHED FAR FORWARD OF THE OTHER WOUNDS, CREATING NASTY OVERTONES.

GOOD INTONATION PATTERN WITH THE LOW E FALLING BEHIND THE OTHER WOUNDS IN THE NORMAL PATTERN
