NGD Jem 20th

Well Jem's are not very popular in Norway at the time. And i got this, my 12th Jem from a nice guy in Oslo. Very fair price. Hope to get the difficult ones in the next 10 years. VSK PMC and GMC. It's only money right !.

Re: NGD Jem 20th

Awesome find! I've heard that the 20th Jems sound fantastic but weigh a ton!

As for curiosity: what are the popular guitars then?

BTW, nice finding, congrats on the new axe.

I don't know about the rest of the world but in Norway and Sweden right now is the only way to get rid of a guitar is to give it away. The market is DEAD.

That's absolutely correct. The weight makes it very difficult to play. I used to own one but I only had it in the case due to the fact that it was too heavy to play with. It's a pure collectors item rather than a player.

Re: NGD Jem 20th

That is a beautiful guitar. Congrats on the new Jem. :-) I've never seen one in person, except from Steve playing it live in Glasgow 2007. How does the acrylic body effect the tone of the guitar?

Re: NGD Jem 20th

Nice one! So it looks like you're also missing the 7VBSL, 7PBK, 77VBK, 10th and 90th as well

Only eight more to go!

Re: NGD Jem 20th

New battery for the LED light made a difference.

Any reason why ? I still have it. It is a Maxell Super Power Ace stamped 06-2008 at the bottom.

Re: NGD Jem 20th

I'd like to know how the acrylic body compares to actual woods, in terms of tone.
