First post !!! (after another that’s gone god knows where and a test one showing me (by finally appearing on the screen *:biggrin: ) that I’m not as stupid as I first thought when loosing the original one
So, here is the thing I want to have your opinion on : I just bought (yesterday, here in France) an unsold JEM 90 HAM for $1400 (thanks a lot to all the ones who left that baby for me !!!, I wouldn’t have been able to pay the price it was back in ’98 !!!), and I want to know your opinion 2 years after its first appearance : how do you consider this guitar, now that the “anniversary” fashion is gone ?
If you want to know my opinion, just read the “hands on reports” on this guitar, and you’ll understand !!! I totally agree with the 4 reports : start to play “sisters” with a clean sound on 4th position, add a little reverb, and you just have to look above your shoulder to look for the Steve Vai in your room !!!
I don’t want to talk about it when it’s cranked up, but : ebony, basswood, evolution PUs, Lo Pro, and the impression that your fingers move by themselves, with your brain 3 miles behind them
So if there are owners here (and I know there are !!!) just give me your impression after 2 years of playing, or collecting (just play ‘em
) or selling *
I’m in love with it, and (this would’nt be the same for my girfriend *:biggrin: ), I want to know I’m not the only one.
Last but not least, as this is my first message (after 3 months of laughs and interest by reading all your posts), I’ll get a little bit “multitopic”, but that’s just to tell you (all of you, but mainly Glen), that this site and forum are definitely the best thing for me on the web : not only it’s focused on the main centre of interest for me in life (ouch, my girfriend was here *:angry:*), but it’s filled with really nice people, and it always stays clean and interesting (even in the “off topic” area). So, just a big thank to all the “famous ones” (Glen, Rich, Kevan (You’ll have a lot of opportunities to correct my English : I’m French
), littlegreenman, Bob (can you upload again your “Jibbob”, I only have 30 sec. Of it...), Jem7vwh (but 90HAM is not so bad !!!), moondance, oooo, plantboy (viva Jan Cyrka), jono, and all the others with so complicated names to remember for a poor French brain !!!
I promise, this will be my longest post !!! (but I still have a lot to say, for example on my other beloved babe : UV7PWH !!!)
Waiting for your answers !!!
