The Rarest Jem/UV??

What's your take on the rarest Jem and UV? I want to say the 77PMC for Jems and 77REMC for UV's, but I've heard the 7PBK and 777VSK are pretty scarce as well. Any opinions?

I'm sure Rich knows the answer to this question. I agree with your pick of the PMC, but I'm not sure.

Re: The Rarest Jem/UV??

how many VSK were produced? I once owned a VDY I will get that back when the guy I sold it to pops his cloggs pmpl. that was a term of the sale that it comes back to me if he sells it or if he dies lmao he is a life long friend and we do have a joke about me attempting to cut the brakes on his car or maybe poisoning him or something.....
I would like to know how many of the VSK were produced though.... very interesting.

Re: The Rarest Jem/UV??

As I understand it, production figures for the VSK weren't necessarily recorded, it was intended to be a regular production guitar until it was pulled "at the last minute" I beleive due to the paint fade issues that plagued the regualr maple/pyramid board SK.

I've heard double figures and I think numbers as low as "15" have been mentioned in passing before now.

Re: The Rarest Jem/UV??

I think the PMC's were 266, as I recall I could be wrong and probably am, so why am I still typing and now pressing submit?

My favourite is the UV777GR. I don't know how many were made of this guitar, but I have never seen one for real.... Guess there weren't many made of this one. Still want one though....

Re: The Rarest Jem/UV??

Presumably there are some one of a kind prototypes knocking around? Or are we talking ones that made it to production?

In the past 18 months, I've seen two. According to http://www.jemsite.com/forums/showpo...3&postcount=65 there have been 5 between March 2008 and 29th October 2010 (on FleaBay). Whether that refers to seperate guitars is another thing as I've seen the same one go more than once on one occasion.

The "15" may refer to the ones that were actually imported to USA as brand new. I have no idea of this figure (i read 20 somewhere), other than it was reported as being extremely low.

Approximately 340 made apparently. One of my favourites too...I'd even consider trading a VSK for one
