What JEM could I get used for $900???

I live in Sweden so they are a little more expensive but anyways, I`d be glad for any information. What JEM's could be availible for about $900??? I was a little sceptical to those guitars at first, I thought they couldn`t do clean things but after hearing Sisters I believe they can do ANYHING!

I like the 7VWH the most cause it looks so damn good and it has an alder body...But I like the others too so anything would be fine.

If memory serves me, Vai recorded "Sisters" with a JEM77FP. *The 2nd and 4th positions can sound VERY crisp and acoustic-like. *Keep in mind, that was recorded in 1991 or so, which was some time before piezo/hybrid bridges. *I thought it was an acoustic at first listen as well, but later found out differently through a couple of interviews that he'd done around that time (I think in Guitar Player?)

As for a JEM under $900 used...you may find an FP, DY or VBK in that range. *There are plenty out there. *Best bet would probably be a DBK, if you don't mind the black textured finish. *

You can get most JEMs for $900. The anniversary JEMs are out of the question but the rest should be possible to find. As the market here is somewhat limited you will have to keep your eyes open just to find the objects. I've been monitoring the local market closely for the last 1 1/2 years and on average there's only 1 or 2 ads each month.

Here's a list of those I've seen since last september:
[font=courier]
JEM77FP * * SEK 6,500.00
JEM7RB * * *SEK 7,000.00
JEM777SK * *bid
JEM777DY * *bid
JEM777LNG **SEK 15,000.00
UV7BK * * * SEK 6,900.00
UV777PWH * *SEK 10,900.00
JEM777SK * *SEK 7,500.00
JEM77 * * * SEK 15,000.00
JEM555BK * *SEK 6,000.00
JEM77FP * **SEK 8,000.00
UV777PWH * *SEK 9,500.00

There is practically no new JEM/UVs sold as the sellers have priced themselves out of the market. Most guitars for sale are therefore around 10 years old.

8 papp isn't too bad, unfortunately I don't have cash to spend. Is this the one in Jönköping?
