Quick Snapshots of my Ladies

I brought all my Jems home today, hoping to get some shots outdoors in the back yard, but it seems we've gotten rain for the first time in who knows how long, so I just did some handheld snaps in my basement.

I plan to actually take some half decent shots of my Jems as soon as I get the time. These, however, are only quick snaps. Take with a Canon 5D, handheld with a 24-105L IS f/4 lens, in possibly the most horrid lighting conditions on the planet. I just threw the white balance to tungsten so the guitars wouldn't look all yellow and sh*tty, but they still don't have the gleam they would outside . I will get some good shots this weekend and repost.

Here is the link:

My Bitches


This is 9 of my 10 Jems, the 10th is a 777DY that is being swirled by Herc Fede and is due to ship next month. Here's a little history on my lovely ladies.

The 77FP was my first Jem, bought on the bay for $1,100 (before they skyrocketed). I love this guitar.

The 777LNG is dead mint. The fretboard has NO wear, it was sold to me as new and it will remain as new. I don't play her at all. I just take her out once in a while and put my d*ck on her and smile.

The 777DY & 777SK were bought within a month of each other, and both are great guitars.

I bought the Root Beer from a member on this site, it has a 7PBK neck on it, which is what I loved the most about it. I always hated the Root Beer neck, so when I saw this one, I had to snatch it up.

I bought the 20th new when it came out. I love the guitar, it's the only one I have with an AANJ neck on it.

The 7PBK is a new purchase for me, I just got it in yesterday.

I bought the 777VBK from Rich and had him set it up E flat so I could play my Guns N Roses songs with a Jem .

The 77PMC is an authentic ATD swirl, according to Rich, and is listed on his used site as 777PMC-Rat. It is beat to **** and in horrible condition, but it's currently the one I play the most.

The other 777DY that isn't pictured was all beat to hell when I bought it, hence my reasoning for getting it swirled by Herc. I'll post pics when I get it in.

These are my Jems, in a rare "together" photo. I treat my Jems like the government, they are never all in the same place at once . In case there is a fire, I want to have a few Jems left to play.

Now I only have 3 more Jems than you good sir. You have plenty of time to catch up because I am on restriction from the wife.

No more guitars this year. I think it was the 1959 Fender Custom Shop limited edition Shell Pink relic I just bought for our daughter that put her over the edge .

When you get your 20th, post some pics of your ladies!


oh, and she didn't buy the whole "bought it for our daughter" thing either, even though it was my daughter's 2 week birthday .

Re: Quick Snapshots of my Ladies

Whoa... You own the big 3, a beautifully swirled PMC, a 20th, a signed root beer and an FP :O. I'd do a lot of things just to get my hands on that PMC. It's exactly the guitar i want, but i think il do like you and have my 777 sk swirled since the finish on it is already faded on it anyways.

Congrats man!

Since I'm not allowed to have 9 naked ladies in the room, it's the next best thing

The LNG is DEAD MINT. It was sold as new, and has all the case candy including the original warranty card and all that junk.

Thanks, in my mind, I own 3 of the big 5. LNG, PMC, 20th I own, but I still need a 10th and a DNA to complete my "big" ones,

Very sweet collection! I'd love to have a PMC and I'd settle for a DNA....but there's no chance that's gonna happen soon.
