Why aren't jems apreciated as much as they used to be
I never really considered Jems or RG's to really be metal guitars. *I always thought the weird shaped BC riches, and the Hamers and Jacksons were the more metal guitars. *Probably because the first guy I saw using Ibanez was Satch, and then Vai. *All the metal guys I was into used Jackson or the others.
I just wish that colour wasn't dead. *On Jems or otherwise. *I miss the 80's flourescents and graphics. *The colours of today are so limited and boring. *If I see one more black or grey guitar I'll puke. *There's nothing wrong with them, but it's sad to walk into a music store now and not see any colour.
As far as the Jems not being appreciated, the only comment that gets to me now is, "what's the point of having a handle in a guitar""that's totally lame" *Well, I think the monkey grip is the epitomy of guitar coolness, in fact, everything about the Jem is cool. *I'll never give them up. *I love em to much!!!
