Thanks to the Jemsiters who tried to make this work. CITES proved to be particularly challenging as I had two really good international offers that we just couldn't work out due to CITES looming over us. I also had another deal lined, though not with a Jemsiter, domestic one at that, but the seller backed out.
Anyone, big thanks to Tony, Tonetheus here, for making this happen. A very cool guy and a pleasure to work with.
My Jem collection doubled yesterday... I know, big deal compared with some of the serious collectors here. But I'm really happy with this one, it's stunning, nearly flawless, and it feels exceptional. I just love the feel of a good rosewood neck.
Anyway, without further adieu... behold:
There is one little bug-a-boo I need to figure out/work out. It seems the pickgaurd was not exactly lined up the greatest. It is very close to the front edge of the trem. I can pull back pretty cleanly, without catching it, but any detuning/diving seems to catch it.
