Re: Thought this little Gem was interesting...
You-guys want reality!
This guitar is an IBANEZ factory JEM77PMC , all maple, ATD Stamp, with factory purple low res evo sounding pups and original neck plate.
The beginning,: I posted a heads up at Jemsite of the real condition not shown in the bay auction “To those who may want to try and win it”. The bay is wide open to all.
The years: I brought it back to life, a huge job, chased the scarf joint issue over a year to get it as close to the sweet spot before I did a fret level/dressing. Found out it’s a maple body, did the A/b process with pickups to discover they sound like evo’s yet with low res. Since day one there has been a massive amount of insults, false accusations, twisting things around I say out of context here at Jemsite about this guitar and many other things. I posted it up to begin with and along the way to share something very exciting, which my real Jem friends and I have been doing long before Jemsite existed. Each time I posted it for sale, “I” backed out. Because this thing allows me to express & release from within like no other of the over 100 Jems that have went through my hands, or any guitar I have ever touched for that matter.
Today: Everett offered to take it to a show to sell it, I don’t know where he got the 1 of 5, proto, on the tag, perhaps he knows something I don’t, perhaps he assumed, made a mistake, miscommunication, I have no idea, obviously nobody in here does either. Fact is this PMC is something very special, all maple, low res evos, from my understanding, that‘s what they talked about at the show that nothing was confirmed other than the body wood and pickups. Is it a one off? Proto? somebody knows. Everett knows my family has serious needs, he was trying to help, that's the only reason any other human would even get a “NICK” of the chance to get this guitar out of my hands. You all want to make this out to be a scam? That’s the biggest joke of this thread. To me this Jem is priceless, I would get 50k if I could, I believe it‘s worth it, not one of you have right to tell me what its worth. You guys want to bash a situation you know nothing about, make false accusations and pathetic insults like a bunch of disrespectful children, go ahead, seems to me your making mistakes just like we all do in this life.
This Jem has been Passion & Warfare since day one, the sound of the thing is absolutely insane! Yet the controversy here has been hideous, sometimes you-all act like a bunch of shot out monkey grips who need to get a new hobby…I would say I have made the biggest mistake of all…..Spending anytime whatsoever in this forum.
Oh, I deleted my recent posts because I don’t want to waste anymore time here, I have nothing to say, all the old posts about this PMC outside the adds, were deleted by Jemsite.
There ya go vultures, start twisting this around some more, I gave you a good amount to chew on and play some more games with, "A little reality check"
Passion and Warfare: Apology excepted.
To those this doesn’t apply, hey, we had fun at times, wish you all the best.
