When all the Jems came out back in the late 1980’s, I was more of a Jackson guy, and not like I had more than one. I had a 1985 Soloist that I bought brand new and that was my main guitar, but I had a few cheaper Ibanez guitars – some Roadstars and a 550 – that I really liked. When I was able to finally play an SK in person in Lubbock, TX, during college, I loved the damn thing but I couldn’t bring myself to plunk down over a grand for a pink guitar. Fast forward 27 years and I’m supposed to be older and wiser, and now I own multiple pink guitars. This is my second SK and it remains in near mint condition.
