My Name is Jeremy.... I'm a JEMaholic - ...JEM777LNG #195 -

So I find this JEM777LNG that this dude is selling on ebay. *I'm sure some of you saw it: JEM777LNG #195, no case, black unoriginal knobs and green bridge pickups instead of the pink. * I discovered that the JEM was literally down the street from me at Guitar Showcase, so I figured it was at least worth a call, if anything. * I ended up going over there after work to see the JEM. *I was exhilarated to find out that #195 was, naturally, signed by Vai, but also signed by Satch, Paul Gilbert, Billy Sheehan and an unidentifiable person (I think it's Steve's drummer, Jeff).

Needless to say, I purchased the JEM ($1395.00), along with some "string swing" hangers (thanks for the info, fellas) making three JEM's purchased this week. * I probably paid too much, but I'd do it again in a heartbeat; I love this guitar! * I'm just an armchair therapist, but I do believe I need some help, for I am addicted. *I have people searching for MC's, and Doc @ showcase claims to have a JEM10 for me. *If this is being wrong.. I don't wanna be right. *I'll grab the 10 tonight, if he has it.

This week:

JEM777DY
JEM90
JEM777LNG

Yikes! *$1395 for that LNG? *Ouch... * But, as long as you enjoy it, I guess that's what matters most! *

I know... I know; I wasn't going to do it, but I've had difficulty locating one as of late. *I offered up 1k, but he was adamant. *I wanted one that badly. *No regrets.

Rich, my wife is being sooo cool about this. *She really liked the LNG! *I told her about the 10, and she was genuinely happy for me. *She's observed my joy, and is supporting every purchase. *I love that woman!

Who's got a JEM MC for me?

Damn, did you hit the lottery number or something? 3 JEMS IN A WEEK!!!!
I hate you!!!!

j/k .......We're ALL Jemaholics, and we're not afraid to admit it. Most of us can't afford to buy 3 Jems (too much for the LNG by the way) without putting a lean on the house!!!
NOW YOU WANT A SWIRL!!!!! * *GOOD GOD!!! *I need a raise!!!

Thanks, you guys. *I knew that if anyone, you guys would understand why I paid the inflated sum. * I recall pointing and laughing at the ebay auction. * No case?! Barf knobs?! *WTF?! *Meh, I'd do again. *I remember in '87 when I first saw these in Guitar for the Practicing Musician; I wanted one so bad. 1395 to fulfill a dream? *Priceless really.

I'm at a point where this is do-able, and I'm grateful for that. *Once the kids are in school and stuff, I will have to monitor and curb my spending. *Note also, that these spontaneous decisions are uncharacteristical for me.. which makes it that much better! *

Rich, I'm on my way. *I was checking these past couple of day's and I seem to get stuck on that DNA2K. *I think I'll shoot you an email with my inquiries.

At the beginning of this week I found out we had to tent our house. *I lost out on a custom guitar I was looking at, because I had to pay for termite solutions. *

But we received the player price for the tenting, ended up not having as bad structural damage as anticipated and I started a mini-collection. *

Beginning of week = crap diddly doodly. * End of week = sweet diddly iddly! * (flanders)

Congrats on your new purchases.
Beeing a jemaholic is great isn't it? The only problem is that it's bloody expensive.
