Hello! I just bought a collectors quality 1989 777 sk. I was told it had the original case. Is this the correct case that they were released with? Thanks!

UK dealers at least seemingly always sold the guitar in those cases. I don't know if it was an "optional extra" or a UK distributer "requirement" or just good business practice... If a JEM over here from back then DIDN'T have that case, I'd think something was up...Red stitching so it's an overseas case.
This is one of the most common questions, it should be in FAQ.
There was no case given with JEM's except for the LNG. Every case had to be purchased. In the US the recommended case for that would have been a JEM1000C which were made in the Canada and later the US. The rest of the world got cases from Japan so whether the chainsaw case, which is what that is [forget model number] or the M150C would have been "recommended" cases. But it didn't come with the guitar. There was no original case unless you have a receipt that says that case was bought with the guitar.
