JEM7PBK - First year PBK's in nice condition are hard to come by and rarely available. This one has its issues but overall it presents very clean. The worst blem would be a top side bruise that left a 1/2" long impression radiating 3 finish cracks, one finish crack breaching the front edge is all that can be seen from the front. There is a creased oval finish crack between the tone and jack and a couple touch marks around it, and just a light scratch at the end of the grip. There are 2 shallow depressions over the bridge but no cracks or bruising if they were bumps. I believe the paint has been buffed at some point and the round of the arm contour is a little hazy. It has typical played mid haze scratching to the pickguard and wear to the saddles and baseplate, with no pimpling. With the super clean headstock that only has a tiny edge mark on the bottom edge and a scratch across the swoosh, this guitar looks very nice. On the back are a 5mm and 3mm long finish cracks, and very light buckle scratching mostly on the trem cover but working into the area between the cover and lower cutaway. It has a 1" finish crack on the bass side of the pocket, the plate has about 40% corrosion. There is light and even fretwear commensurate with a few years of play, just a little deeper at 2 and 3 as expected. The pickups were evidently gone long ago and a "no logo" replacement set bought, but there is a white with chrome Humbucker From Hell in the neck position, so however it got in this configuration, it was also wired with a push push on the tone, the lead running to the 6th pole of the switch [white/black from the neck pickup], which I'm not positive what the mod does, wiring gives me a headache, I need a diagram to tie my shoes, so to speak. The ground wires were redone and the jack line spliced. I checked the anchors when apart and the treble is slightly loose, the bass barely if any, but discovered a thin chip off the inner edge of the trem rout that hides on the other side of the trem when inspection the surface.  It's in a rare molded plate joint model TJC case, which probably makes it a PGM100RE case, with bar and the extra PAF PRO only.**$1750**
