Re: I'd like to buy another jem. what do you suggest?
I just had my '97 7V refretted last week. It was already crowned and dressed a while back, so it was due time. I completely forgot how far I used to be able to bend strings on this thing.
If I had the option to play each one, I wouldn't have a problem with a Premium. I've played enough that were killer right off the shelf as well as a bunch that left a LOT to be desired. Definitely would not purchase without playing first.
I know if I buy another JEM, it'll be the 77VBK because it'll be the perfect evil twin to my 7V. My only gripe is that I'd strongly prefer an ebony fingerboard.
