**Warning** Do Nont Buy This Jem 90TH

I purchased this guitar from this dude on the bay... needless to say I got shafted... I won my dispute easily and got my money back though I had to eat the $65 to ship it back to this douche. He claims it is in good condition but he's lying, it is a complete lemon.. strap button on cutaway has been pulled out and touched up with nail polish, when we put the strings on the guitar the screws in the back of the body that hold the claw in just came right out of the body, I never seen both screw come out of the body at the same time, pulling all of the wood filler out with it he used to try and rig it... has numerouse dings in body which he said were not there, both posts have been cruedly re-routed wih a toothpick in one of them used as a shim... Look at photo's and you can see where the paint is chipped all around the posts and where the person who re-routed the post holes hit the guitar with the router a few times. I called the guy back being polite and asking for my money back since I could not put strings on the guitar.... he got very deffensive and said that me or my guitar tech did the damage, he is a royal ******* trying to shaft someone with this guitar again... dont let it be you!

auction id number 170898806027

I hate to say it, but based on those pics--why the hell did you buy it?
Next time, don't get trigger happy. Those pics are warning enough.

OP bought the guitar, had to go through claims to get a refund, lost shipping, and the seller still has 100% feedback because no deserved negative was left.

If you go through a dispute on ebay, the opportunity to leave feedback is no longer available.

Great! So the real bad sellers get away with it.

Re: **Warning** Do Nont Buy This Jem 90TH

I didnt dispute it with ebay, I did it with paypal.. The dude posted it and took it down after a day, so I sent him a message and told him I would give him$1500 for it, he agreed and we settled at $1560 shipped.. I know was too good to be true, but I didnt think that a rare Jem like that would be in that kind of condition.. I actually called you Rich about 3 weeks ago asking about a setup and some repairs, this was before we tried to put the strings back on. Paypal went back and looked at the orinigal listing since I bought the guitar as described in the original listing and it was all said and done in a little over a week, but I still had to eat the shipping... I cannot stress enough how bad this guitar is, the guy was acting like my new best friend talking to me over the phone until I got the guitar, and once the screws pulled out of the back I called him and told him about getting my money back, he called me a hick, and yea I do sound like redneck, but was not nice... but I told the dude, I would get my money back... he knew the guitar was a lemon and was trying to screw me with it. was the first guitar I have bought in years, I am very busy and unfortunately it was a raw deal, also guitar does not have stock pickups, has a tone zone in the bridge and a duncan 59 in the neck, he never mentioned that either, or that it doesnt have a hardcase..

Re: **Warning** Do Nont Buy This Jem 90TH

I was looking hard to see if I still had the original auction number or some pics, but I deleted everything once it was shipped back.. Just wanted to forget it happened until I seen it back on the bay last night.
