REJOICE - FOR I HAVE A NEW JEM!

Hi,

It's been a while, but I can confirm that over the weekend, my Music Man Steve Morse found a new home and I acquired my first Jem........a BFP no less!!!!

Hardly any dings on the body at all and none of them to the wood. I have cleaned the neck and that vine stands out a treat. Set it up yesterday and can't wait for my first rehearsal with her tomorrow!!!! What a gorgeous geeeeetar.

I'll hopefully get some pics to post shortly.....just need my mates digicam.....

I'm just a bit worried that this could be the start of that disease that everyone on here suffers from.......

.......Jeminus Addicticus

Don't worry, Jemminus Addicticus is *easily* cured by a simple procedure known as a moneyinwalletectomy. Oh and congrats on the new Jem!

Congrats on your BFP!!!

I'm sorry, but there is a good chance that you have been infected with the disease already. The good thing is that compared to all other known diseases it is much more desirable.

Don't put that thought in my head!

One of my mates just dropped his Blender Tele Custom Shop at a rehearsal last week and took a chunk out of the body......

.......so dropping a Jem would easily be 1000 times worse!!!!

Thanks for the notes guys.....already got my sites on an FP to partner it up with..........once this virus gets ya....the only cure is more, more more!!

Your disease is degenerative next thing you know yoll be buying Uni's
J-customs and pretty much any type of rare ibanez you can get your hands on. The end comes fast youll buy and buy and buy and then the next thing you know. You'll be one of the Jemsite forum moderators

Swapped out all the cosmo hardware. I can't look at the cosmo stuff in there anymore - i just love the way the maple and the gold blend

I'll spare those who've seen it 1,000,000 times on this site by leaving it as a link. http://www.invisibleband.com/bfp-gold.jpg

I also put an Evo in the bridge and a Virtual 2 in the middle. I swear I'm going to be buried with this guitar in my hands. I'm not going to tell any of you graverobbers where either
