jem777sk

Hey guys.
Yesterday i picked up a jem777sk from 1987 ;-)
It was very dirty when i saa it, but after some houres of cleaning its now a beauty.
No big ding, marks or anything, only very small scrats. Im still surprised so good the condition is ;-)


The bad point: when i cleaned it i took the very dirty strings of, and when i was finish i realized that i did'nd have anyone. And today its holliday, so i have to wait untill tomorrow befor i can play her ,-)

Re: jem777sk

very nice. I would take the screws out of the scratch plate and spray the heads with black paint. I find small touches like that just finish the guitar off.
Happy strumming.

Nice work!!. The fret board cleaned up really nice. What did you use? I've got a 777DY with a board that could do with a freshen up.

Re: jem777sk

i wanted to use alcohol, but the only thing i could find was the cleaningstuff for my glasses ;-), but i think it worked out oki.
When i have time i want to give the frets a makeover (ther is some good advises on Rich' page) and then give them some oil or so

Re: jem777sk

Congrats on your purchase, looks killer!

I saw it posted on dba 2 days ago, you're fast :P


You wouldn't happen to know anything about the 777dy that was up for sale there, about a month ago?

Re: jem777sk

very nice, 800eur sounds like a great deal, as it looks like the sk paint has kept up well. Not too much fading on the Pups either, keep her safe !

Re: jem777sk

a quest:

Is it only direct sunlight ther fading the colours, or will it also fade when it hang on a wall without direct sunlight? infact i have had the same thourghts about my UV77MC (ATD), but now it layes in its case.
