Does it never end? Three rare Jems are sold at once

I've got my RG2027 for just a week now (and an almost free RT650 at with it), and guess what: My GAS has only worsened

A friend of mine tells me tuesday that someone's offering a mint BFP for any good offer on a site similar to ebay out here... I thought for about three seconds about my very recent purchases and then just jumped on it I've been looking for one of those since I've started collecting Ibbies (2-3 years ago) and always told myself to go for if the oppertunity would come along....I offered 1200 euros/dollars and the guy thought it was a nice deal and stuck with it . These guitars just don't come along every day/year out here, most people just can't let go of them

But here comes the funny thing:
Other guys are offering really rare Jems for about the same price, at the SAME TIME:
- A JEM 777 VBK...
- A JEM 7P BK....

I just can't believe it, most of the time there isn't even ONE JEM out there (in this small country, not even the regular) and then THREE RARE ONES AT THE SAME BLOODY TIME....

Fate is just cruel I guess.....
My only salvation lies in the fact that at this time next week I will probably have bought 3 Ibbies in the same month

Over here in Holland, all jems are considered rare, even DY's, etc...

But, in short time, I'll have myself a Jem7PBK for $750

Would have bought that BFP (on gitaarmarkt.nl) for 1200 euro as well, I guess... but it's weird indeed, noticed the same here (I'm from Delft too btw) and bought two (!) guitars last two days: a JEM 10th and a RG7620 So I'm satisfied for a while and let those other JEMs for some other jemsite member

/me wants a script that reports every JEM/UV available on ebay and the likes ASAP

Here in Brazil Jems and UV are rare too, despite of being a big country. But last week i've been offered a UV7BK '92 with green dots in very good condition with no hardware corrosion and in good shape for about U$800 no case.

But i need to choose between the guitar or to trip to Europe to visit my cousin that's studying in Barcelona. So i choose to trip. Mostly 'cuz I bought a lot of gear last year.

Guitars always come and go.
