Check this out - Jem 350MY

Lot's o' 777 Jems on the bay right now, a couple decent LNGs, a nice SK. And one unique Jem 350MY! Check out auction # 230531959773.

This isn't really original, a couple guys around here have done similar, but I give this one points for going further. Almost there, just missing a pink or red knobby on the pickup switch. I was fooled for a second until I realize the color didn't look right.

yeah, at least he's honest about what it is. if you were going to buy a cheap guitar and put evo's this one is cheaper than the guitar it's self. I've been thinking of getting a 350mye

nothing wrong with the listing IMO, he says it's a 350 dressed like a JEM...price is ok too.

So would I, but I just can't justify it. With a small amount of effort you can get a MIJ RG for less.

I've seen a trend of early '00s going for next to nothing. A place like Elderly gets one of these and throws it out there for peanuts. If quality and price were 1 for 1, these would be the same $700 price as a used Fender American Standard. I've seen ones in better shape than this for under $250.

Just to be clear, I didn't post it because it's deceptive.

The fretboard looks like garbage, other than that, it's a deal...

Re: Check this out - Jem 350MY

I have a couple problems with that auction.

1. He says that it is "desert sun yellow". That is extremely far from the truth and I'd be really upset if I got a guitar that looks more like a taxi cab than a DY.

2. Those are stickers and even worse, they aren't even close to accurate.

Pass.

Yeah--the only ones he sells that I think look like crap! All his other decals look great, but not these.
