jem777v BK

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.

That'll be '91 VBK, probably an end of the year model that may have hit the stores in early '92. Sounds like you got a couple of real nice deals there, we'll look forward to seeing them.

Don't be shy...how much did you pay for it? $999.99 isn't quite the deal of the century!
