This is awesome -- My first Jem!

I just won a 7DBK on ebay. It will be my first Jem. I can't wait to get it! The auction is at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=33043 if anybody wants to see my future baby. Was advertised as new (though I suspect it's lightly used) for $850. No case though. Ah well, can't have everything. Still, I'm insanely excited.

Right on. Congrats, you are going to love it. Welcome to the Jem club. I guess that I can officially welcome you as I joined in Feb. with my 7vsbl (remember to pay attention to your other guitars though, as they will get jealous of the new arrival and have tuning tempertantrums if you don't )

Congrats on the Jem purchase..... You will be hooked like the rest of us,,,
next thing you know you'll be drooling over auctions, bugging Rich @ Ibanez rules and selling all your toys and other non Jem related items.
You'll understand when you have spent some quality time with it.

I picked up a 7D a week ago today and absolutely LOVE this guitar!!! I'm betting you will too Untill a month ago I owned ZERO Ibanez guitars.. I now own a 570 and the Jem7D.. Love em both!! But I wish I had picked up a Jem years ago.. This probably won't be my last one

Thanks for all the congrats guys. It was sort of an impulse buy and I almost didn't get it. I was debating it over and over in my head for, well it was probably 45 seconds but it seemed like forever, and what it came down to was, it seemed like a good enough price that if I didn't make up my mind soon, I would lose the chance because someone else would have no doubt came along.

For $700 really? I saw them advertised at musicians friend for that price, but by the time I got my check they were sold out. The only shop where I live is pretty small and there has never been a single Jem in there that I've seen. Still, I wonder if there were other places online I could have ordered from for that price. Too late now, though.

They sold out for a while, but then I guess a few people returned theirs, as the ad came back up a week later.

Dave2k, I'm joining the fray right along with ya. I just got my JEM7DBK yesterday. It's a great guitar btw.

I also was too late in getting to MF for the $699 price, but I managed to get another online-dealer to price match to it (I had to call...e-mailing didn't work cuz they checked and saw it was out of stock). So I got mine for $699...oh, and the best part was that this dealer ships for free if the item is over $100...so I got free shipping too.

Anyways...you're gonna be very pleased with it...I'm digging mine alot. I just need to slap some 10's on it.

Congrats Dave2K. I just received my first Jem, a 7VSBL, a week ago. I love it! I have liked Jems since they came out in 87 and can't believe I waited this long to get one. This is the first but probably not the last.......

Oh yeah, what the heck is G.A.S? I've seen that a couple times on here.
