True as that is I only said VSK as they seem to be as rare as gold dust.
I really don't think I want one but what I do want is a JEM777 with a maple fretboard.
Don't care if it is the SK or the DY and I want a new one.
My idea was to convince the distributor to order them and make them available for sale - not just for me.
And with the prices jems fetch around here I don't see any problem with shifting 25-50 777DY's in the UK and they will sell at list price.
I went to the most popular guitar bit of London (Denmark Str) this saturday and I saw 2 7VWH, 1 77FP, 1 555WH and they were on "sale" because of the old trems from £1899 to £1749 (not the 555).
Andy's (also there) had a '88-'90 beat up FP (with EDGE and NO serial#) for £1300. When I told them that I'm slightly interested and if they fret level and crown it I might part with £800 they said that no way they would let it go for less than £1100.
From that point of view I wouldn't mind paying £1400 for a brand new 777DY.
p.s. oh yeah and "Rockers" had a 7620 for £899.
now keep in mind that these prices do not include even a gig bag - just the guitar.
