O. MY GOD......
..the feeling I got when I read that cannot be put into words. Literally chills came over my body,
hair standing on my arms.. utterly in shock .
Was like WHATT!!!!!!??! I screamed outloud ‘HOLY ****!”
To read,someone on the internet.. explaining something from 20 years ago, only Me and the guy I sold to on eBay knew... was seriosuly the most amazing **** I’ve ever experienced. One of the craziest moments of my life! There’s NO doubt that’s my guitar.
Was explaining to my wife..my flip out lol.. first off.. what are the chances of someone else!?stripping and painting an original jem77pmc, That color..
then reading the story I told.. verbatim.
For the past 20years It has been eating at me.. deeply. the regret. Not only the sentimental value.. but the added sick feeling of destroying and losing something that was a part of my history and who I am. that they only made 250.. ever. Uhg. It was horrible. I always thought about.. what if I could actually find the person who possibly has this guitar now?? What if MY jem is somewhere out there? This is absolutely amazing. Amazing. I seriously figured there was maybe a 1% chance in finding that guitar. The feeling I had reading that response, from some person I didn’t know.. insane! Like I said, NOT a DOUBT. When words chill right through your whole body! Words I only told one other person.. so damn long ago.. I was still in the Air Force! So it was maybe 1999?!
Hearing about the clearcoat! It was almost an inch thick! Took me DAYS to get through that painful process. Chiseling with a hammer.. uh.
I lived in ft.walton beach, Florida at the time of this.
I could barely fall asleep last night. When I get out of work.. I’m going to search for pics I can hopefully find in all my crap at home. And I will post.
I have felt the power of the internet! And this truly amazing Jemsite and the community. Thank you 🙏
