NGD--Another Jem

Finally got my mitts on a Jem 77FP. It's a 1988 and in fair enough shape. I've got some work to do on it, as there are several dings along the bottom edges. Luckily though, not down to the wood. A little wood filler, black paint, clear, and light sanding and this baby will be back up to where she deserves to be. As always--the green vine inlays are just so eye-popping in person! It's raining out today, so the pics had to be taken in the garage--sorry Ryc, no dandelions today...

Beautiful man!
I almost got rid of my 777VBK, but I remember back when I was a teen (42 now) wanting to just play one, so bad, but they dont just let any one play a 1900.00 guitar (price back then) . but the vine inlays are breath taking in person for sure!
The above one (yours) would be my second choice.

Re: NGD--Another Jem

Very, very nice. Not sure what it is, but my FP is my favorite guitar. It just plays so nice Could also have something to do with the fact that I was obsessed with it since the first time I saw one as a 13 year old in 1990!

Looks like you need to place an order to Rich for a proper painted knob set. If you're interested in replacing that ratty Edge, I'll have one that's a big improvement on it for sale in the near future. I've been sort of accumulating cosmo Edge trems for a while here!
