Ok, walk into the local "score shop" today and the gentelman I deal with say's: I got something for you!" and walks into the back room and comes out with a jem (instant Hard on!) He say's: its older and not worth as much, it has a couple chips, nothing major, what do you think?" I had to stop from stumbling my words, as it has tilt neck, so I new older right away, the plate was tarnished so I could not tell the year, vine inlay so I knew 777v.
He gave me a price of $XXX.XX (notice 3 digits, not 4 before the decmil point!) , and I said $xxx.xx, he stuck his hand out and said deal!
I got this for the deal of the year, maybe even then centry.
As I was about to walk out the door, he said: "I also have a gibson, I know you dont really care for them, but I thought I would mention it."
He brought it out, 76 gibson sg special in trans red, extreamly nice shape, he said" 250.00 out the door, I stuck my hand out, shook his and said deal.
God has smiled on me lately!
Photos will be posted later this after noon, this is the ser#916XXX of the Jem, please confrim I'm correct on the year please.
