welp, yesterday i got my beautiful new jem77FP. and let me tell ya...this thing is amazing. as soon as i got it i rushed over to jam with some buddies so i could test this thing out. we attracted....i'd say 20 spectators :!: . man this guitar plays so good. this is my first GOOD guitar scince i started playing and i was sooo relieved that my skills are increased dramatically while playin this jem.

phew ive been wating a loongg time for this but it was well worth the wait. i cant believe i am a proud owner of my very own Jem...wow...

:shock:

by the way this thing costed me 1300 bones. which is an extremely good deal considering its a reissue. super clean :D

Very nice, but personally I dont like the finish on it, I would have went for the white one.


Im thinking of picking up a Jem555 myself, maybe at Christmas.

my friend has the 7vwh and dont get me wrong its beautiful. i donno i just wanted somthing a little different and this floral one really stood out to me.
a 555 would be cool. theyre pretty cheap compared to the rest and play about the same so ive heard.

I've heard the opposite of that, pretty cheap but play very cheap too.

You might would want to try one out first before investing in to one.

Great! I just got one Jem77fp also and I like it very much.
I prefer the sound of the PAF PRO pickups.
A Jem7vwh is maybe a little better to play on but I personally think the
sound of the Evolution pickups is to dark. But it is nice to have
both :wink:

yeh im only 16... :wink:

i kinda feel weird being this young and having a professional guitar...i think i deserve it though...its not like im gonna neglect it or anything cause i play so damn much. im told that im skilled enough for a guitar of that magnitude so...haha my friend has a 700$ Line6 amp and a brand new 7vwh and shes been playing for like 3 months...her first guitar was a js1000....shes rich though so eh. she doesnt play guitar anymore so all that gear just sits around collecting dust... :cry: i tell her to sell it all the time but she wont and it pisses me off. its terrible seriously it pisses me off

Take care of it and it will take care of you. If you respect what you have there, you can probably enjoy it for the rest of your life.
