Did anyone else notice...

Hey Jemsite,

It's rare for me to post, but I had to ask, did anyone else see on a certain "Pop Stars" instagram that there are pictures of him with a beautiful LNG and PMC. I'm sure there are many players that would say that it's a shame to see such guitars in his hands, but quite frankly I am thrilled to see the JEM in a truly mainstream setting again.

Thoughts?


(Plot twist, the pop star is Adam Levine)

I had no idea because I don't 'do Instagram'. But I went to look see and yeah, I think it's cool. Here's a guy that can literally have whatever guitar he wants, and he chooses 'our' guitars.

Maybe he's secretly a member here?

Seeing that pop star having that jems, it's not really bother me at all.

Rich knows. Insider information tells me he sold Adam Levine the LNG.

Easy detective work on Rich's site. Looks like he bought an SK on the same day.
Good for you Adam!

Sorry it went straight over my head, I thought it was a play on words, I'm looking up Avril Lavigne! I've never heard of the guy in Maroon 5 but that's cause I'm 45 and too old for the pop stuff lol. Great to see a Jem in use like this, especially a LNG.

Vai used it for pop music too. It's great seeing the LNG getting some love.

Oh yeah, I remember Rich hinting at this back in the fall. That's really cool. Also good to know that if there's a vintage Jem out there being played by a prominent musician, that it was set up by Rich and it's making a good name for itself.

The RG / Jem design is really quite versatile. I'm amazed more people don't use it.

On the assumption that Adam Levine did buy from Rich, I wonder if he got the full pro platinum set up? If not, he really missed out!
