The hated hardtail Jem. Came out a few months ago. We are not impressed (not the royal we, we as members of this forum).

Re: i never seen this before...

Recommended retail price in Sweden for it is about $4240. Just a little bit below the JEM7V that has recommended price $4300.

Should have better sustain with the fixed bridge but with almost the same price as the "real" JEM i would take the "real deal" any day.

Is that a respons to the prices in Sweden i wrote?
It is expensive with guitars here and importing them from US doesn't make it cheaper. Add shipping costs, customs fees and 25% VAT on total price at swedish customs and the price gets high.

It's in response to anybody that wants to know, but add 25% and shipping and you will still buy for less from the US.

If that's Euro, and there's no way it's SEK, you'd save around 2000E, depending on what customs is.

Re: i never seen this before...

The prices i wrote are in USD. Custom fees i think is about 3%. The 25% VAT is added to everything, price for product, shippping and custom fees.

Yeah, the prices here are so f:ed up its not even funny, but its not quite that bad, swedbank converter says $3706 usd... Still insane for a fixed bridge guitar I think. I mean, does the decal really cost as much as an edge pro to fabricate? really?

An average paycheck for me is about $1600 usd after taxes, after paying all the bills and siht I have about 200 left, $3706usd, you've got to be kidding me.

Granted it won't appeal to a lot of people, but it does fill a hole in the line. The lefty VWH I think will be better received.
