Purchased new, made in Japan, 7vwh 2013 model. I remember waiting months for it to be done and shipped here.

Have since had it refretted with stainless steel 6105 Jescar frets.

Besides a VSBL bought new from a blow-out sale (1,000) all of mine were used.........

I've had 3 Jems total. FP, DY, and FP2. FP was purchased new, DY and FP2 were used. Sold the DY, and still have the FP and FP2.

I wanted to buy new but, the ones I wanted I couldn't afford when they were new and now that I can buy them the new stuff isn't as interesting to me.

Thanks Jono. I'm interested to see if the majority of Jems are kind of going from fan to fan via second hand deals, coming off the shelves of guitar stores or from dealers like Rich who do both. I have two from the 'bay, one from the 'list and one private deal, all Japanese. I picked up a SFG from gumtree in Oz because it was an insanely low price. I didn't think I'd like the chrome hardware but as soon as I saw it and played a few chords it was in the bag. They're all second hand. It seems to me that there's still a healthy interest in Jems, but whether it's in the second hand market more than the new market, or whether it's more of a nostalgic market or from newer interest, this is why I've posted this poll. I hope people vote to at least see how it is within Jemsite.

I appreciate everyone who has taken part - thank you!

JEM Owners - 1st hand / 2nd hand / Both

Inspired by the current '30th anniversary JEM' thread, I'm curious to see how people have acquired their Jems. Are you a strictly buy-from-new type or a used goods bargain hunter?
