NGD: '89 JEM7PBK

Finally got my newest and probably last (not counting a refinish of an FP) Jem ready to go. I've been on the lookout for a PBK for some time and managed to score a really nice one. I wanted one of the more unique Jems and gravitated to the PBK because of the old-style grip, the rosewood/pyramids combo, the Wizard neck and the fact that they didn't sell a ton of them.

In all honesty, I still like the feel of my FP the best, but this one is really great as well. I'm going to have to measure the neck thickness on this one eventually. I swear it's the thinnest neck I have. Anyway, on to the pics!

Nice one ! that grip looks so wrong on first sight but soon grows on you
I cant remember ever coming across one of these on ebay. I got mine from a guy on here.

Enjoy.

Wow. Nice score!

I've got a PBK neck on my OOTS body. It's so thin, it does feel thinner than the Wizard neck on my RG750. It's probably all in my head.

I got mine from someone here as well. Guy basically registered here to figure out what the guitar was worth. He bought it brand new but it had sat for almost 20 years after he switched to bass. Said he played it for a few years but after that it was only played sporadically.

That looks incredibly mint for '89... I love the white on black - it looks really classy - like a black tie tux on a guitar... that is a gorgeous guitar man - congrats!!!

I don't know if I like your guitars better, or the pictures you take of them! Nice score!

Thumbs up Re: NGD: '89 JEM7PBK

that's an amazingly good deal on a very good PBK. I'd never let mine go for that price - well done!

Not overly a big fan of the grip,but a nice guitar all the same.

Needs some decent paint though...
