My current life is now complete...

Back in 1989 I was lucky enough to get a killer deal on a cool 777DSY - then I proceeded to take it apart and destroy it - as I am sometimes (most of the time) insane. My heart has ached for the past 13 years for my way cool 777DSY that was destroyed. I am happy to announce I just picked up a killer 777DSY in great condition. I know the market is flooded with these, but it gives me goose bumps nonetheless. Now within the next 10 years, I will hopefully pick up a GMC...

ARGH!!!!Sacrilege!!!. You changed your mind, so you´re in the right way and maybe will be forgiven one day.
Congrats for the new one, and take good care of it.

I sanded the finish off the headstock and the body, and kept sanding until the contour on the body was changed. I cut the pickguard down to a small piece like Eddie had on his Frankenstein Strat. I took the pickups out and changed them to EMG's or something else stuff. I loved the way the Jem played, but hated the sound. I then decided I didn't like it and traded it for a guitar cabinet. My stomach is turning just thinking about it...although I still have the original green volume knob from that first guitar!
