I'd make that trade in a heartbeat.
I like a Les Paul. But the original floral JEMs are the absolute best. Looks in better condition than mine too.
Congratulations.

Even dead guitar gods can still shift a lot of product. Just ask Jimi. 🙂

I don't know whether guitar was ever over.. But it certainly has a lot more competition than in the 1970s..

But from what I can make out it's a special spot run from the Japanese market J custom line.

Has anyone Plek'd an older JEM?

My 77FP has a few worn frets.
I've looked after it, but not been shy about playing it for the last 15 years. Plenty of room in them so I don't think it needs a re-fret. But it could use some TLC to...

Wow..
I thought original poster sounded unlucky. Maybe not then?

I've owned 2 Jems, 3 JS, a J custom and a PGM. All bought 2nd hand.

I had a JS 1000 that buzzed only on the high e.

I've only owned 2 JEMs a 77FP and a 777VBK. They were functionally identical except the floral finish and the trem. (My FP is a LoPro rather than an Edge).

I think my FP is a '93 though. Did the...

There was a nearly perfect PGM 90th sold on UK EBay last month. I watched every second of the final bids cursing that I didn't have the cash to spare.

I think the JEM 7RB is the one that ruins your theory. A full MIJ JEM with dots and scalloped last 4 frets.
One of the rarer ones though!

This is the one process I've found to be a real pain with an edge. I've got all mine set up quite nicely already. So I don't have a guitar that needs intonating to try it on. I'll...

Long live the necro-thread!

Looks like a great guitar. The pickguard gives it a real unique look.

What's that behind the bridge holding the trem arm? Or is it just part of the Roland system?
