Reply: perhaps you have one of the original Gem guitars (nice name!) dating prior to around 1987 when Ibanez bought the company for the sake of the name "Jem" which they put on artist Steve Vai's line of guitars.

It's not too long of a story, all can be found on the history of the Jem guitar and it's name at www.jemsite.com.

I know when I was in the 6th grade in 1979 a Gem spelled like that was my first guitar

GEM GUITAR

I have an old Gem myself and can find anything on it online. The guitar seems way older than just the 80s. I love the way that the back of the neck still has a strip of bark from the tree they made it from. Also the ivory keys are Kool as well.
Unfortunately my. Daughter went into the room one day and pulled it from the wall and it kind of shattered a part of it. That's one of the reasons why I thought it might be older was because of how brittle the wood is.
I was wondering if they hold any value too them. If it's worth repairing or not
