NGD! My first Jem!

Yes! First one, an early 1988 Jem777dy purchased from a fellow jemsiter. In better condition than I thought =) I am a very happy camper!

Not really NGD today though, got it last week but went away for a trip, so took it apart and set i up with new strings today, plays sweet!

Oh well, pics or it didnīt happen =)



Arrived extremely well packed



The cat is inspecting the newcomer



Yaay!

Ahh, you're just waiting on yours

That DY is seriously in good shape, very vibrant color still. I am constantly kicking myself in the butt for not grabbing that one with the handrest that was on the bay a while ago. Only one I've ever seen with a handrest.
