JEM77FP... Several patterns? - Does the FP still have differ

Hi guys!

Do any of you know if the Jem7fp still is being produced with several different patterns?
I know there were many combinations before, but which one is most common now?


Regards,

it is impossible to determine, especially since production halted, began in small quantities, then stopped again. There are so many FPs around, it should be easy to find one you like... glen

you have to be careful about "production" and "available for sale". They made some in 2000, what they're doing in 2001 and 2002 is anyone's guess

This will probably get me laughed at here...but I thought all the florals were at least a little different anyway. I was under the impression that each was a bit different due to that fabric stuff they used...just depending on the piece you got. I welcome the corrections to my lack of knowledge on this matter...

There are basically 2 different patterns, both are shown in the Gallery. Because the pieces weren't cut out of the exact same spot in the cloth they can shift quite far in any direction, but if you look at the 2 patterns it'll still pretty much look like one of them. There are some back cuts that made it to the front, pretty rare but every now and then you'll see one. The back cuts were the areas between the major patterns and are pretty sparce.

Ahem...there are THREE different patters for the headstock, the body, and the back. *
This gives you a total of 27 different possible combinations on the FP's.

Your Honor, I'd like to present these two pieces of evidence to The Court....

1. *Show you? *Hell- you've SEEN it! *You stood in front of it- SEVERAL times! *I'm of course referring to my former FP, "Eve".

2. *From Jemsite.com:
"One interesting fact is that there are three different pattern variations used for the body, headstock and body backside. Therefore there are actually 27 possible variants of these guitars available that look similar, but not identical. See the Guitar Gallery for a few different patterns.

I rest my (UV1000C) case.

I think you'd be best served by your own advice. I see *2* patterns, and back/offcuts, nothing else.

No, and I think you need glasses, that's actually marked *Other Patterns* and is a back cut that made it to the face, nothing more. Comprende'?
