Too many players use a noise gate. Work on perfecting your muting technique with both hands, and also turn the volume on your guitar down when you're not playing. Easy.

theres not much chance of being dissapointed with a jem is there? How will you know unless you've played one? Don't go by what everybody else says, because everyone else has different hands, different ears, and different playing styles...Spending that much money on a guitar without trying it first ...

I saw a coked up drunk guy on sitting in the front row get up and put a wad of cash on the stage after Steve came out and started introducing the band.
