hmm what could be in this battered hardcase?



A 1987 JEM777DY !!!


And which god signed this guitar?

Steve Vai



my gas is fed for an amazing 600 dollars, I think im going put in a new bridge pickup since the old one is rusted beyond anything. The hardwire is a bit rusted up as well but it was worth it.

yeh its so cheap since the guy did some serious messing around with it, like the headstock was sanded down and thats not the original finish of the guitar.

I love Jems, the fact that its signed by Steve mother****in' Vai makes me want it even more!

I have been sigged by UG's Greek, what have YOU done today?
#6
Yea, I was about to say something had to be done with it, the paint is to green tinted. It's more like a lime color, then the desert yellow.

Lucky it is signed.

I went to a Vai concert with a buddy and we had passes to meet and greet with him and the band before the show.

Vai really didn't want to sign my buddies JEM as he said people just get them signed and sell them off for more just because of his name.

Either way that guitar is SICK!!!!!!

^Sounds about right.

Getcha a Breed, Evolution, EVO 2, or PAF Pro in that baby
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.

Just 600? Jeez! Even with such a rancid color it'd be worth it! Not to mention the signature. That is truly amazing. Have fun with it!

Those inlays look awesome.
And the finish is actually pretty sick. The neon green(ish) is a perfect color for the punk rock scene.

Great find, especially with a sig. I'm shocked it was only $600. From 1986, the damn thing is a relic!

P.S. HNGD! Are you gonna replace all the pickups or just the bridge one? What pickup(s) are you planning on putting into it?
