All disasters aside....mind you knowing my luck at the minute it will probably end in tears, i`m on my way to Paris on Saturday morning to try out, and hopefully purchase a 91 BFP.
Sweeeeeeeeeeeet is the cry. The Paris bit is a long story....i live in Belfast!, but needless to say my girlfriend and I are making it a bit of a shopping trip.
This is where you lot come in. You guys and gals are the people to ask when it comes to Jem gtrs so ....... if you had the money to spend on a gtr would you buy yourself an older used one or a new off the shelf VWH or SVBL.
The BFP has been my favourite Jem for such a long time, it is such a beautiful instrument....but is my sense of practicality washed away by my love for this unique gtr. If im looking to play a gtr would I not be better off with a newer one?, one that i could break in myself???
The BFP in question has a finish crack at neck pocket, no fret-ware, clean enough scratch plate, neck and fret-board, bit of pitting on tuning pegs and tremelo.....definately a player...i'll know much more when i have the baby in my hands on Sat!
So to cut out all the bull.....whats it to be the BFP or a new of the shelf Jem? Any takers?
PS - Its so pant-wettingly exciting in my house at the minute...i feel like a 20 year old boy again! OOOOOOOOOH I CANT WAIT!!!
thanks for any responses
