An error in the Jemsite's specs for the 77BRMR...(I hope!)

According to Jemsite's spec sheet all JEM77s (including the new 77BRMR "Bad Horsie" JEM) have scalloped frets from #'s 21-24.

http://www.jemsite.com/jem/spec.htm

Well, I'm here to tell ya' that the new '06 77BRMR I recently purchased from Rich does not have any scalloped frets. I just noticed this tonight. I'd mistakenly assumed that all JEMs had scallops for the last four frets since my 7VWH had 'em. Playing in dim light I first thought I was seeing things tonight when I noticed the fretboard looked flat all the way up. Nope, when I turned on the lights and checked it out closely there's no mistaking it, my fretboard isn't scalloped anywhere.

So, did the 77BRMR have the four scalloped frets in '05, but not for '06, and Jemsite just forgot to update the specs? Or ( :shudder: ), is Jemsite correct and the Bad Horsies do in fact come with four scalloped frets like they say and I somehow managed to get the one and only 77BRMR that doesn't have any scalloped frets??

No scallops on the 90th, BSB, DBK, or MR.

No Scallops on the BRMR for any year . They're not necessary anyway.

I don't need 'em and I don't mind them not being there, provided they're not supposed to be there on my particular model.

That's all.

So, okay, Jemsite simply has their specs wrong on my guitar. Cool.
