Last night I went to my local guitar shop after work and tried a JEM7BSB.
I bought it this morning !
Please bear with me as I express my joy :
It is brand new (meaning it was not used by anyone else, not that it was produced yesterday...) and quite expensive : I got it for $1560 with case, it is usually found at $1920 (catalog price being $2200 ! France is such a nice country - everything you buy has 20% taxes).
At first I was kind of confused by the neck : the painted raw finish was quite unusual for my left thumb. But after 5 minutes playing, it started to get really easy to slide up and down the neck. I suppose with time it's gonna get very smooth...
And the weight ! My Washburn N2 was supposed to be light, but this
is what light is !!!
But most of all, the playability :shocked: !!! After a few minutes playing (the time it took me to get used to the neck, pickup positions and such...) you really understand why you guys love JEMs. I could almost believe I was a real good player
How could I play another guitar ? How will I be able to enjoy other guitars (this
is the sad part of having a JEM
Guys, I want to thank you. This site is great, the forum is great (mmh, finding everything wonderful is usually a way to tell that you are in love, isn't it ?)
Without you I would've bought a JS100 or a JEM555, which are surely not bad, but cannot compete with JEMs (or JS
, I suppose, but I never saw one). Well, OK, my bank account would have fared better, but hey, you only live once !
Next step : finding/making the right strap
So, can I join your gang of JEM worshippers :biggrin: ?
