Right, here goes,
I have my Jem, which I love playing every so often, but there in lies the problem. Ever since I've got my UV's I've almost exclusively been playing them. I can pick up the Jem or any other 6 I have and play it, and it's fun, but I always end up picking up a UV later on. I also seem to have failed to emotionally attach myself to the guitar. Everything else has it's own character, it's own history and a reason I can't get rid of it. The Jem, despite being the one that's easiest to play and has the nicest neck just hasn't. To me it just sounds clinical and, well, a bit sterile dare I say it
I've had the Jem for about a year now, and yes, the neck has faded a bit, so it's not mint (how could you not play this guitar
? So.... Maybe I haven't given myself enough attachment time?
maybe it's the pickups? Maybe it's lack of customisation? I don't know, but it any case, I am now thinking of selling it or trading it to sponsor a 2027, something I am drooling after. Now I've only once got rid of a guitar, and that was due to it being a bit crap (a squire with a neck covered in a substance I can only describe as glue...), so it is a bit daunting and a bit weird...
That, and there's no gaurantee that what I'll get will be something I like as much, but if it's a 2027 it will get used and played more... But I do not have another Jem...
Anyone done this or gone through it?
Blasphemy or common sense?
In short, what are your opinions on this?
