Talking Show us your Jem dings and cracks!

Well, Jems are only guitars and they've seen a lot. Usually they'll get wounded, so show us your scars!

Here's my 1989 FP's noticeable scars. But still, plays like a dream:

So here's my UVGR instead:

These already came with the axe...

1989. I'm not the original owner. I've had it for 10 years now. I've done almost all of the dings. But I'm no guitar collector. Rather a player.

Re: Show us your Jem dings and cracks!

I trusted the drummer to keep it safe for a couple of days when I was dragged straight out of the studio by the girlfriend. Instead he decided to let his younger brother gig my mint 1993 7VWH - and returned it like this denying all knowlegde:



It may not look like much but holy crap I felt physically sick when I even thought about it the next few days. Its still the only blemish on it and want to get it touched up if possible by a pro one day. Its still a wounder everytime I see it...

Not quite a Jem but not long after the Jem fiasco my brother helped me move house a few years back and he dropped my lazer blue RG550 which was the only guitar that wasnt cased at the time:
