Re: Jem 7 ?? - Just trying to identify my guitar
That's what I was thinking, with the P marking on the body (and the fact the body is a PBK in style as well), however the marking "V" on the neck stamp might denote it maybe should have been a Vine fret inlay, but its just dots and the whole thing is pretty incongruent of the production models of that time which has thrown me completely. I got to thinking maybe it was a prototype in some shape or form? I've not played in many years and recently taken it out of a 15 year hibenation. These instruments really are superb as it still plays wonderfully and sounds incredible following a fret polish and full setup, it's my pride and joy! The PU's were all black too, unlike the white of the PBK. The only thing I changed was replacing the original black V2 bridge PU after about 2 years of owning it with the pink Dimarzio you see in the pictures, although I do still have the original PU also.
Thank you for your contribution, its much appreciated.
