About to order my 1st Jem, asking advice from Jem experts.
I have played my 94' Malmsteen Strat since, well '94 :P Awhile back I played a Jem 7VWH and fell in love. Perfect looks, feel, you name it. I have decided to purchase one. I would like to know of ANYTHING I should know about before making this purchase. I will be ordering the guitar, sealed, new, from Washington Music Center. The price, WITH the UV1000 case, is $1669.00. No tax since I am out of state, and $25.00 shipped, insured. What do you think of that price? How about the dealer? Also, has the Jem changed at all recently? ( the model I am buying ). The only negative's I have read about are: crappy setup ( but this doesn't matter since WMC will set it up for me the way I like it ), and paint flaws in the claw and monkeygrip. Is there anything else I should know about/consider? I have never mail ordered a guitar before, and will ship it right the heck back if there are any flaws. This Jem community looks great, I can't wait to join the club! I really value any input you all can give me, $1669.00 is hard earned for me. Thanks in advance.
