New Premium Jem in 2014.....

The SFG has been out now...what... 2/3 years?

Id love a new premium Jem for 2014.... dont even care what colour.....

(although RED would be awesome)

and.... since they reissued the green dot universe this year as a premium.... how bout a 777 SK, LNG or DY premium?

would rather see a new REAL Jem. the Jem77vbk is finished and the Jem77FP2 should be finished sometime soon.

It is a good point that the MIJ jem:s are a lot older than the premiums though..
Would be nice with a replacement for the FP2 now.

I definitely wouldn't want to see the heritage of the original neon Jems cheapened by the new premium line. It's just how I feel.

This exactly...

And with all the complaints about the quality and playability of the SFG Premium "Jem" IDK if I'd call it a real Jem either...

Has anyone ever heard so many complaints about real MIJ Jems? I don't think so

I'd rather see a new MIJ Jem in in some type of red than anything else

It matters where it's made? It's a far better guitar than the 333 and 555's they've been making for near 20 years.

I'd like to see this one on production:



I love maple fretboards, ant that one with the tree of life inlay reminds me the old Jem BFP

Re: New Premium Jem in 2014.....

There seems to be a lot of demand for that model pictured above. I bet they release it for next year, as a guess. It is a beautiful looking guitar. While I am not a Premium fan at all, I would take a closer look at a model like that. It really does look fantastic in that colour and fretboard combination.

I'm certainly not a Japanese snob but I don't think all Jems were created equal
