My mint 777DY

Hi all,

Don't get my JEMs out these days as much as I should. Got my DY out today and felt I needed to share some pics.....

Every time I look at it I'm blown away by how mint it is. I've been hunting for JEMs for years and never seen one for sale that is close to mine in terms of condition. It looks and feels like it left the factory yesterday. No fading to body, zero fading to pickups (which I have never seen on any other 777DY) and no neck joint finish crack. No bubbling on the trem either. Amazing for a guitar made in 1988. I know most of the history of the guitar.....it's 100 % original and, yes, it spent most of its life in a case. I have it hanging on a wall and it gets played occasionally (although I'm starting to get worried about damaging it and I've never felt like that about a guitar)

The reason I'm posting is to see how rare early JEMs in this condition are (and also I'm quite proud to own it and felt like sharing some pics...forgive the indulgence )
I'm guessing there aren't many left like this so please feel free to post pics to this thread if you've got a minty early one..... lets see 'em!
