Got my first 2 Jems....virtually...

Rich is selling me an FP, and it looks like it could ship next week! And also, I won Item number: 290156525772 on 3bay last night............quite by accident because I didnt think my bid would hold up, and I wasnt going to bid again. So Im rollin'.

I've always loved Ibanez, but I've never even played a JEM before. I gig mostly with a Jackson PC-1 (Phil Collen-Def Lep sig model). Anyone care to make a comparison?

Posts like this make we feel like crying...

Anyway, as for a JEM: Imagine awesome, and then imagine someone coming over and kicking awesome in the nuts. That's how I would describe a JEM77FP.

On a serious note, a JEM is really just a souped up RG550, with better pickups, better quality craftmanship (normally), and a thicker neck. Enjoy your new JEMs.

"Souped up RG" or is it "souped down Jem = Rg"?

The PC-1 is complete junk and you need to send it to me

I've never had the chance to play one of those Jacksons but they seem sooooo sweet.

Re: Got my first 2 Jems....virtually...

Pics? 1 is not yet shipped and the other was only just bought .. that would be rapid delivery

You probs got a bargain from the bay because you were willing to drop that amount on a seller with a rating of 1.

As for the Jems, they are different. The Phil Collen is an amazing guitar and I think you will notice a lot less sustain with the Jems (even when not using the neck sus on the PC1). But its the same as the ESP M-II et al vs Jem debate, neither good nor bad - just different. If you prepare yourself for them both comparing good and bad with various aspects then I think this will be the start of a long relationship with Ibanez for you.

Enjoy
ps. Consider a 777, I think they are the best jem players.

What was the "other" Jem besides an FP that you got?

There should be pics from the evilbay auction, and I doubt he would buy an FP from Rich without seeing pics of its condition

Re: Got my first 2 Jems....virtually...

in the auction listing the seller states... quote..

As stated above this guitar is in impeccable condition, it is truly flawless, therefore, all sales are final. I will be happy to video tape it's packaging, with close up footage for you, for an additional $50 over selling price.

hmmm , whats all that about,, did you go for this aditional service? for 50 bucks i'd want my wedding night videoing..

congrats.... i hope the deals go well!!
