Anyone ever bought a Jem and a JS guitar in the same day ?

I'm about to buy a JS24P for $950 Australian (about US$700) in perfect as new condition.

Then there is a 2007 Jem 7V WH on auction currently at $1200 Australian with less than 24 hours to go. This Jem is listed as being sold by Rich Harris in 2008 and is set up perfectly, in excellent condition.
No doubt the bidding will go higher but will be cool if I end up with both guitars in the 'same day'.

So I've just won the auction on the Jem 7V WH.

Got it for AU$1525 which is US$1120 at the current exchange rates.

I have now bought a Joe Satriani and Steve Vai signature guitars in the same day

Well done on getting both guitars. I was checking out that Jem yesterday (before I saw this thread) & it looks great and you got it for a great price.

Congrats.

Thanks. It's the best price I've ever seen a Jem 7V WH go for so I couldn't pass up the opportunity. And yeah it seems like it's in really good condition too.

Thanks. I really only bought the JS because of the price. They retail for $2299 and sell for around $2199 so when I could buy it for $950 I couldn't resist.

I already own a JS1000BTB which I'm really happy with. So this new one may end up being a short term play toy. I'm sure I could get my money back if I decide to sell it down the track, or close to anyway.

Re: Anyone ever bought a Jem and a JS guitar in the same day ?

So I received both guitars on Thursday. Right before I had to start work. I'm glad they came when they did though because my partner was at work and didn't know I had bought them lol.
The first guitar that arrived was the JS24P. I was surprised at how much nicer it looks in flesh. The next thing that struck me was the size of the neck, it's like a baseball bat even compared to some of my Fenders !
Then the Jem turned up. I wasn't actually expecting it just yet because tracking information was saying it was going to be delivered next week.
It's a nice guitar too. I think the neck feels a little fatter than my SFG Jem but I like it. I have been playing my Jem Jr quite a bit lately and the difference in the pick ups is like chalk and cheese.
I'm about to go away for most of the day now so I'll be lucky if I get any time to play them.
Anyway first impressions are that I like these two very different guitars
