Finally Found a Jem...SK

After searching for one in Canadia for a while, I FINALLY found a Jem. No crazy import taxes, no getting destroyed on the weak Canadian dollar.

Its an SK I found on eBay, seller was really cool, and it turned out that we had some mutual friends.

I would have preferred a more beat up Jem, but I don't think I'll feel too guilty about getting this SS refretted + throwing in new pickups.

I will take some proper pics once it arrives, but here is a sellers pic:

That was crazy expensive for the condition, though I'm sure you dikered some.

Yeah he cut me solid price. Paid a bit more than I would have wanted to but Jems are hard to find in Canada and importing is stupid expensive right now because of the pathetic Canadian dollar.

I can't remember the last time I saw a reasonable price on eBay for an SK. I was thankfully able to find mine through a local seller.

Re: Finally Found a Jem...SK

Yeah honestly I have been looking forever and a day, couldn't find anything in Canada.

The main problem for me is even if an SK popped up in the states for say $1800, by the time it gets here its like $2700 after tax, conversion fees, etc.

Wow! Congrats! ^ ^ Sometimes just getting a guitar you have wanted for awhile is more important than price.
