NGD JEM 7v

Excited. Found a 2001 7v today. Sounds great and plays great. Needs to be tweaked a tad to get the setup back in shape. The case is a gator but it’s still a nice guitar.

Re: NGD JEM 7v

The Best Jem ever; I have several Jems and the ebony 7V is the best sounding of the collection. If only it had an unfinished wizard neck shape... 24th fret on yours look shiny unlike pre-2001 models. Congrats!

Re: NGD JEM 7v

yes the 24th fret is pretty. 2001 they changed the bit not to burn the inlay. has a few small issues like the D string buzzes on the first fret and it is missing a nut screw and has a broke trem post allen head. all parts are ordered from Rich and should be in a few days.

now to fix the loose trem arm. it wobbles so i will need to tighten that nut to keep it solid.

Re: NGD JEM 7v

Ebony is just the best. I still think pre-2004 are the best Jems made. Amazing.

Re: NGD JEM 7v

well got the neck set at .4 relief. all buzzing is gone. New cobalt strings are on and now it plays even better. just waiting on my screws to get her finished up.

Re: NGD JEM 7v

got the screws and bridge post installed. trem bushings on and the arm is stiff again. plays fantastic. even got to clean the fret board while the bridge was off.
