Re: Question about JEM77BRMR

seems like someone forgot to peel off the plastic film underneath the pickguard.

Re: Question about JEM77BRMR

The morons at the local distributor rip it off and leave bits of film showing under the screws, thats on the brmr on display... i guess they dont know people tend to like their new stuff to be "as new"...

Cuz it doesn't need it Granted mine's only a month old, but I've been playing the hell out of it and the finish seems fine. If you look VERY close, there's a couple little marks (not scratches) on the pic guard, but is that any different than any other guitar???



And yes, I replaced the dorky knobs with chrome dome knobs!!

No offense to any bald people out there

Hey Jim,

Where did you get the chrome knobs at? I didn't notice those on your guitar.

Don't get the strat knobs (as pictured there) Get the dome (knurled) knobs

Much more practical and better looking as well!

Holy shnikes, that's the best looking BRMR I've ever seen. I love the vine inlay. If they came from Ibanez looking like that, I'd have one.

Plus I'm tired of people dissing then cuz they are GREAT guitars! Best tone out of ALL the Jems I own!

Hopefully you folks don't mind me showing her??

If so, it'll go into hiding never to be seen again
