Missed it by THAT much...

Went into a second-hand music store today, looking for an RG to hack up (but that's for another topic). I asked the guy if he ever had any Jems in stock. He said "those funny Ibanezes with the handle? Yeah, from time to time. We had this ugly black one with a green vine down the neck and green pickups last week. Sold it for seven hundred bucks."

Let me just take out my calculator.

...that's a 7VBK for $350US. Damn.

Anyway, he took down my name and number and will call me if they get in any more of those funny Ibanezes with the handle.

Win some, you loose some.

Like the drummer that opened up a second hand music store here, and priced all the guitars and amps at crazy prices for a couple of years. Guess what ?, as soon as I was earning a good wage he employed a guitarist and all the prices miraculously rose !

He did have a JEM7BSB for around $1500 AUS ($800 US) a year or two ago though.

Man, a BSB is my dream guitar. I'm thinking about looking into getting one imported from Japan, where they're still made... But I'm doing a swap with this store, my Korean Epiphone Firebird for a Korean Ibanez RG which I'll mutilate and turn into a Custom BSG (Burned Stained Grey). Hehehe.

Incidentally, I thought "BSB" stood for "Burn Sukka, Burn."
