Re: oldie but goodie???
That sounds like some models that were introduced shortly before we closed some 10 years ago. Here are some possibilities:
Model 6600P - http://www.janome.com/machines/sewing/mc6600p/
Model 6700P - Successor to above - http://www.janome.com/machines/sewing/mc6700p/
Model 7700 - http://www.janome.com/machines/sewing/jnh7700/
A lot of people had issues on the 6600P with paint chipping and coming off the machine body. It was a pretty good workhorse though.
The 6700P was a short run, as the 7700 replaced it.
The 7700 may still be in production as a New Home product (Internet). It was a decent machine, though the wheel on the front was more of an effort to be cool (era of the iPod "click wheel") than practical feature.
