Finally, after 30 years, I've made one of my very few childhood dreams become a reality.
1987 Jem 777 LNG, #380.
Around mid 1988, maybe 1989, I had a chance to buy a brand new LNG Jem, from Brian Guitars in New Haven, CT. I remember Brian, the store owner, bringing it out from the back to show me. In hindsight it was kind of crushing, I'd wanted one so badly, and to have a chance to get a new one was awesome, until the reality set it in that there was no way I could afford it. I was 15 or 16 at the time, from a pretty poor single parent family. I had a little part time job at a gas station. I don't remember exactly how much the cost was then, but i'm pretty certain it was in the $1,500 range. Which was well out of my reach. On the bright side, I bought an RG which I still have to this day.
Anyway, thanks to jazzy-leroy on here, I've finally secured one. It's been about 10 years since I last had a Jem, and this is just my second one. It just made it's way into my possession today, all the way from the UK.
I was too lazy to get out my real camera, so here are some cell phone shots for now.
