Dating a Jem77FP **URGENT!!*
Hi guys, I need to date a Jem77FP urgently for sale, but have come across a strange problem. Here in sweden the serial numbers where often stamped on the back of the neck on a glue on emblem. That emblem is gone, there is no serial markings or year in neckslots or on neck heel.
That leaves the backplate. This one has the serial 904422 "Made in japan", which woudl make it a 1990 model I guess. Problem is, the guitar has a Lo-pro edge bridge, which to my knowledge was not released until 1991. Also the guitar is in almost mint condition all the way trough, so my gut tells me it should be more recent than -90 or even -91.
Can anyone help me out here? Pls??
Best Regards /Richard, Sweden
