IN the market...

Hey my name is chris, i posted a thread a few months ago about a pg neck,.....Well that necer happened ( out bid on evilbay by 100 bucks ) anyways, Ill be getting out of the army soon and a nice check will be heading my way ( as i was hurt caused by overseas ) and i believe for all my hard work a jem or universe is in order... any suggestions? I prefer maple fret boards to rosewood but that isnt the biggest issue. Just curious for some sugestions of yalls favorite jems thanks....( or j customs )

Hey I hope your payout will cover more than just a Jem, get injured for your country and get a free guitar! How nice.

Re: IN the market...

Well, first let me just say thanks for you sacrifice you made to defend our great country and I for one am greatful for guys like yourself.

As for your choice it is purely relative to your tastes and I believe all Jems are great in there own right. For me, I would reccomend a VWH or the new VBK as it will stand the test of time for a player like yourself and not as a collector. As far as J Customs I would look at the 8470 as an example for price and availability. Check with Rich at the above link as you can't go wrong with him.

My $.02

Yeah good idea, and if shotgunlew is genuine, then he deserves a discount!

Re: IN the market...

Why not invest on a nice PMC or GMC when they show up. They have a lot of value and are wicked. Or a 777, they play really well and are funky to look at. You earned that medal and the paycheck, you should get the guitar that represents the end of your ordeals best and thats make you stand out among the american working class as you always will.

Re: IN the market...

thanks for the feedback everyone, as for the medal, lol i dident get the purple heart, i was injured as a cause of war , but i wasnt shot or blown up, the rucksack i careried was between 150-200lbs and it wore down my spine and gave me spinal stenosis. But once again thanks for the comments i appreciate it. Another question would be has there ever been a dark yellow jem ( i love the DY rg )

You mean like this ? http://www.jemsite.com/jem/model/jem777dy.htm

Because DY actually stands for Desert yellow and not Dark Yellow if that's what you meant .

That's a fantastic guitar and it's for a good price too! They made them from 87 to 96, hence they are quite easy to find. I own a Pink 777 and they play fantastically. I highly recommend one if it's what you want!

Re: IN the market...

But im not gunna lie bud pic looks bout as fake as can be..... number one your recticle is crooked , and number 2 its almost impossible to take a pic that clear through a optic ( guessing a 10 power by the level of magnifacation on it ). BTW Im not calling you out or calling you a liar , jus observing

He, no its not fake, the reticle looks slightly crooked becase the rifle is tilting on its bipod, and yes it is just possible to take a pic like that, wind the zoom right back and mess about with the camera focus long enough, in my spare time I run this rag-tag outfit www.fcsa.co.uk , I no longer have to wear the uniform.
