I love the BFP. It is my all time favourite jem. I got a uv77mc two days ago, being my first ibanez, it kicks major rear. I think its great.
When did you buy your BFP ? How much did you pay ? A real shame it went out of production so fast. In my opinion the BFP is way cooler than the FP.
I 'stole' my BFP in a well-publicized coup here on the Jemsite this past March. *Some moron had one listed on H-C "Ibenez 77 Jem - This is a black guitar wtih nice blue flowers on it."
I bought it for $700 in 8.5-9 condition. *I exchanged the cosmo black hardware for Gold and, put an Evo in the Bridge and a Virtual 2 in the middle.
What turned me on about the guitar the most was that it was the only maple board with a vine. *The gold compliments the maple board beautifully.
I have a UV777BK too (replaced ALL the pickups in it), but it doesn't get nearly as much play on a gig as the BFP does. *I just can't relate to rosewood as well.
I laugh and laugh when i see people like the guy right now on e**y trying to sell his bfp for $3000. *What a douche. *It's a nice guitar - it's a great guitar...but $3000?!!? *For that price it better come with about 20 private lessons with Mr. Vai! *(or Jenna Jameson, whoever's available)
