My 2 JEM MC's

I bought both of these from Rich over the past year and a half. They are by no means collector grade, but considering how few originals are still around I'm not complaining one bit. They both play very well (the GMC has a little bit better feel) but the PMC's wiring is way jacked up and needs to be redone. The only other guitar that I have is an old RG770 FM that has a nice heavy tone.

Love the GMC, I'm not a fan of the PMCs usually but that one is pretty nice.

Re: My 2 JEM MC's

Thanks for the replies. The PMC is a bit beat up...I'm surprised that there are no bullet holes in it as the previous owner (before Rich) didn't give a damn about his equipment. The swirl on the back of the GMC is real nice...but again it's on the back and not the front. IMO the swirl on the PMC is well balanced as I have seen in a good amount of pics that they can be pretty blotchy or one color dominates the swirl.

Nice MCs! I bought both my UVs off Rich, he is awesome. Nice score on both of these.
