got my first jem - prs now my SECOND favorite

Hi All,
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *I am SO pumped! I just brought home my first JEM yesterday, and can't keep my hands off her. It's a B.S.B. and her name is Betty Sue (Baxter).
I don't know if i EVER enjoyed playing a guitar so much.
It actually plays and sounds BETTER than in the music store!! How often do You hear that?
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * I read years ago in an interview, maybe Michael Schenker( Darn! there's another one I should have listed in the "most underrated" thread.)
said: " Every guitar has something different to "tell" you..." . * * * *Well, Betty Sue won't shut up!She's telling me ALL KINDS of beautiful things.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *Anyway, to I just wanted to share this with Y'all, and thank You all for the inspiration I get from this place. I feel like the bee girl in that blind melon video. Finally found some people who think/feel like me
** * *BTW, *My PRS just became my SECOND favorite guitar, right behind Betty Sue.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Thanks,
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Robbie.

got my first jem

I know what you mean! I have a damn fine collection of guitars , the best lineup I have ever had in fact. They include a Les Paul, a Parker NiteFly, a Carvin, a Paul Reed Smith Custom 24, and just this past week I got a UV777BK. My PRS had been Number 1 ...but after playing this Universe I am not so sure! I used to be a diehard Ibanez player....but got away from them a few years ago when I lost my JEMS in a studio fire. I didn't replace either of them with JEMS again. Big mistake on my part.....I forgot how great the JEMs and Universes really are! *Now I just gotta get me a nice JEM for the collection and I will be set for life!

Congrats on the BSB...I am sure you will enjoy it!

hehehehe.... I know the feeling exactly. The BSB just blew me away(and about 2 minutes later my bank account)! It's such a sweet guitar to play on! I am sure you are enjoying it as much as I do! Although it is going to wear, but unlike every other guitar I own that's got a couple of minor dings in it, and this one it actually starts to make it look better! I love it to death, and it's a guitar I could never sell, because each little ding and scratch will make her truly yours!

Congratulations on a guitar with real character that's going to grow with you!
