Need an Opinion on Jem 77fp

Hi all,

Recently I came across a 91' Jem 77fp, the guy is selling it for 1000€, near $1300.
My doubts is buy it, or save for the new Andy Timmons sig model. =/
I nearly can't sleep at night, thinking about this!

Some photos of the jem 77fp:

The guy changed the bridge pickup for an Evolution, the neck pickup for other paf pro, because it was "losing definition", the single coil cover, the volume and tone pots for black ones. He still has all the original pieces.
I think it has a lo pro tremolo and it is in quite good condition.

Re: Need an Opinion on Jem 77fp

Besides the color, doesn't the "JEM" part look like it was painted on there by hand?

The upper picture doesn't look like fabric, either.

Re: Need an Opinion on Jem 77fp

Don't these all come with pink pickups as well? If the guy only changed the bridge then none of them were original.

My 77FP's is gold and the vwh's supposed to be black. At least my 7VWH neck has the "jem" in black.

The serial number is 917459, and it was made in Japan. The guy said that he also changed the neck pickup for other paf pro because "it was losing definition" but he says that he still has them. He also changed the single coil cover for a black one.

Re: Need an Opinion on Jem 77fp

The way JEM is written on that guitar doesn't look right. The bridge looks like it's been hand painted with silver model paint too??

What's the go there?

Looks like a Ibanez "JELL" :P

The "tick" looks very uneven compared to both the pics that IbanezFreak posted...
