need your opinion, please!

Hey theres an offer for an absolute mint jem7zwh for $1350 with the uv case. i havn't seen it yet. are jems really sterdy, or should i get a new one for 1550 w/case. (i guess i just have to try it out. but is there something that i will get with a new one that i won't get with a used one (like warrenties). there both would be from the same retail dealer.

Click on the big, swirly top right banner above and ask for a price... i'm sure you will be pleasantly surprised. And the guitar will come set up a heck of a lot better than you'll get anywhere else.

I second that. I would ONLY buy from Rich without seeing a guitar first.

I think I'll jump in and 3rd that motion.
I've had nothing but good experiences buying from Rich.

I know this, i asked for the price and got the $1550. but theres someone who can match any price and i kind of want to play the guitar then buy it instead of getting one from rich. I've never played a jem.

Yes, you should play one first to make sure you like it. But you won't be getting Rich's WORLD FAMOUS SETUP

1 Go to a store
2 play the thing for hours
3 make sure you like it
4 return the guitar and go home
5 swirly banner

I'm with CHOOSING in person, then buying in the most convenient place.

EDIT:Vaibanez wrote the same and i didn't even read
