Finally!!!!

Well I did it. I pulled the trigger on a JEM7RB today. She plays like a dream and just needs a good clean-up and setup. It's one of the lighter ones and I think at one time the bridge pup was changed as it is not F-Spaced and neither of them are split in the notch positions... there are also no ID numbers on the pups, only the DiMarzio stamp. They read 8.2K so they must be PAF Pro's...

So here's some preliminary pics:

Re: Finally!!!!

Thanks for the kind words gents! I'm doing a total clean-up. I'll post more pics once I'm finished.

Re: Finally!!!!

sweet! these are getting fewer and farther between - hope you got a nice deal but seeing how you said "pull the trigger", i'll guess it wasn't cheap.
congrats!

Re: Finally!!!!

Well, it wasn't over the top expensive, but more than I had planned to spend when I walked in the door! I'm going to have to sell a couple of other guitars and stuff to off-set it.

I can't wait to finish the clean-up! She played well with a rather poor setup and ugly strings in too heavy a gauge so she'll be amazing when I'm done!

Re: Finally!!!!

Finished the clean-up and setup and what an amazing guitar. I always figured my RG750 was good, but this is a step above.
