How long before you finally got your first Jem

I know for me it took 16 years before I finally got a deal on one I could afford. I waited and waited and it finally paid off..

How long did you wait till you finally got your first Jem?

I still haven't got one. Been wanting one since 1987, so 19 years. I'll get one eventually, I'm just broke.

I started playing in 1985. I got my first Jem in 2000 (VWH)

You do the math

Re: How long before you finally got your first Jem

I've wanted a JEM since they first came out so like Deeswift, 19 years. Although I was never too hung up on really owning a JEM all that time. I was happy with my Strats and other guitars that came through my life. It wasn't until about two months ago that JEMitus struck and it just so happens I can afford one so my order is in. Needless to say I'm pretty f'ing excited about it. I kind of feel like I did when I was a 16 and I bought my first Squire Bullet and a 30W Marshall combo. Boy was that exciting! I'm there all over again but it's even better this time around. Can't wait to see UPS show up with it!

Re: How long before you finally got your first Jem

I had the chance to pick up the 77FP back in 1998 but ended up getting a new 7620 instead. To this day, it is one of the Jems I would to own. One of these days I will.

I have a UV though.

Re: How long before you finally got your first Jem

I think I would choose a J Custom now. RG8470 or something. While (old) JEM's are great and everything, I think there are better guitars out there for the money. I never liked the 7VWH, it's gross! But 77FP, BFP, 777DY, etc., those are the sh*t.
