Help me make 10 year old dream come true

Hello everybody. I am living in norway and I want to make a 10 year old dream come true. When I was playing guitar I couldnt afford a JEM77FP, but now that I can afford one I cant play :-).

My problem is that a used one is almost impossible to get hold of here, an a new one costs US$3625 (thats really screwed up, I know, but everyting cost a ****load in this country).

I've come up with a wishlist over models I'd like to buy (used ones), and I was hoping for this community to help me get hold of a guitar thats been taken good care of and appreciated and maybe some advise on which one to buy. I was on my way to buy a 555 but after reading this site, I changed my mind (thanks Glen :-))

My wishlist (feel free to comment), in prioritized order is:
JEM10(not much hope in getting one though)

I'am not a shredder, so AANJ, scallops or wizard necks are not important to me (or should it be?)

Thanks a lot!

Rip-ofs, I'll never buy a guitar from them even if they lower their price!.

Maybe that is Norway's list price for an FP?

That's exactly what it is. is importing the guitars themselves so they don't have to pay the Norwegian Ibanez distributor anything. Thus being able to lower the prices.
