Nice story to tell - How I've found a JEM 10

Want to hear a nice story? Yes? Okay, here it is: A few weeks ago I bought my first JEM, a 7VWH.
I'm really happy with this wonderfull guitar and thought it would be nice to own a second JEM. But not just a JEM, i decided to own "the JEM" (in my opinion). So i contacted some search engines and gave them keywords like "JEM10", "Ibanez", "Ibanez" NEAR "JEM10" (and so on). I've found a lot but no JEM10 for sale - no surprise indeed. Then, one evening, i was very tired and about to go to bed i wrote "JAM 10" instead of "JEM 10". This was a really helpfull mistake, 'cause one or two seconds later the search engine returns an offer for a JEM 10! Immediately i wrote a mail to its owner and one or two hours later i received the answer the guitar would be still for sale, in mint condition and for 2800 $ (3100 €)!

That's all folks. Now i'm a proud owner of a JEM10

Oh my gosh, how cool is that....I found my Jem10 in the same way, except my keyword was "gem" - ah, gotta love those "typpos"

Stay well,
