Finally Got My Jem EVO!

After years of patiently saving and waiting, I have finally got myself a Jem EVO.

I've always wanted to try one of these and see how they feel compared to the regular production line. Are these fujigen made, also?

Re: Finally Got My Jem EVO!

I couldn't do it, I would be playing that guitar every day. I said in 2005 I wasn't going to play my 94 Jem 7V live, and after 2 gigs I switched to the Jem and it saw hundreds of stages, took a few battle scars in the process but I'm glad I did it, pointless buying a guitar and leaving it sit in the case as a trophy.

I guess unless you're buying it as an investment to sell later.

Got it from Rex @ sellmyjem. Been looking for a long time buy all of them seem to be in the US and all were subject to import tax. Rex had one in the UK so I had to have it.

I remember Rich raved about the necks on those. I'm not so much a Steve Vai super fan but the thought that the neck on those EVOs being better than on my 77FP and 7VWH makes me seriously want to at least try one.

Congratulations!

That's a Wizard neck? So thinner than the usual Jems?
