G'day Folks NGD

I'm assuming that NGD is New Guitar Day.

I've had a Jem 555 for nearly a decade and been lurking on the site for years.

Managed to work a decent deal today, traded an Epiphone Korina Explorer, the 97 Jem 555 and some cash for an 04 7VWH.

It's got some battle scars on the edges of the body but the neck is in good condition and seems fine mechanically and electronically.

It had been in the store 2nd hand for months and I figured the low price was due to the scaring. Wasn't til I played it today that I really found out what condition it was in.

I was worried it would be worn and trashed but was very pleasantly surprised.

I'll grab some family photos of it with it's Fender sisters and post.

I'll take a $500 Jem any day of the week thanks.

Cheers,
Shane

Re: G'day Folks NGD

The two trades certainly made it possible.

I hadn't played the Explorer much since new and the 555 while great sounding and a lovely aged cream, had the usual trem stability issues.

I had an OFR from one of my strats in it and it was a lot better but still not perfect.

I'm enjoying the new addition a lot.

I think i need to get my post count up before I can post pics.

Cheers,
Shane
