Re: What will be the Jem 35th anniversary?
Fowleri, I can relate somewhat to your complaint about the current high prices of the 30th Anniversary JEM's. If I really wanted to have a 30th JEM, I'd probably shell out the cash and get one. Unfortunately for you, it is what it is. But, I lucked out when I bought my 30th JEM 777LG back in 2017. When I first found out about those I immediately contacted my rep at Sweetwater, but he told me that they had sold out. I was pretty pissed thinking...Am I gonna miss out on the Loch Ness Green JEM's again? So, I searched online and saw that AMS was still selling them and I jumped on it and pre-ordered my JEM. So, sometimes it's meant to be and other times it's not. I did have a '89 JEM 777 Desert Sun Yellow but sold it as well as a 1990 Universe 77MC (ATD swirl) and sold that too to buy my Veleno Aluminum guitar from John Veleno back in 2005. Of course, I'm kicking myself for selling my Universe 77MC. I have gigged with my 30th JEM but it was getting chipped up and stopped using it (before the Covid-19 B.S.) and bought the JEM 7VWHP to gig with since it's not as expensive and not as collector worthy as my 30th JEM. So, there's my 2 cents worth.
