Gassin for a Jem

Ok some of you may have seen, I have a few projects going on but lately Ive been really gassin for a real deal. As much as I love the new jems Id love an older one. MY choice's are between a 77sk, BSB or a DY. The DY and the Sk are at the top of my spening fund while the BSB is in the middle. I dont gig and I dont really play all that much. Ive just loved the jems since the 1sat day i say a FP 10 years ago. What would you do? Im really in a bind here. hahaha

Theres nothing like the real deal, if you have the funds then buy, theres some on our favorite auction site now, or give rich a yell and see what he has available. If you buy from him youll know exactly what your getting and there wont be any surprises. I would go with the dy personally but thats all a matter of taste.

Re: Gassin for a Jem

Yeah, the BSBs have that issue where the finish wears off, especially on the back of the neck, but otherwise a great guitar. I would go with an SK or a DY, you can't go wrong. Rich has a few of each...

If you don't have enough for one of them, then I would suggest waiting until you do. You won't get a better set-up guitar from a more honest dealer. It will be worth the wait to have enough for one of Rich's and you do definitely get what you pay for.

I would buy a VWH, then a year and a half later or so later buy a DY!! That's what i'd do!!!

Come to think of it.....that's what i DID do!!
