Thanks, it's Number 205 I went to the buyers house and the instant I seen it I was in love. It Came with sleeping bag, certificate and factory documents. There seems to be a difference in cases DNA's come with compared to others I've seen. I've seen other's with them really nice flight cases but mine seems to be a bit different and a bit plain in comparison. None the less I love the guitar, the swirl reminds more of an early ATD UVMC type swirl than some of the DNA's I'm use to seeing.

Re: NGD - Ibanez JEM DNA

Could have had it for only 5500 a few years back. Whatever did happen to Passion_and_Warfare...

Long Overdue NGD.

I think that price just shows how much the market for these rare guitars has declined maybe? or it just because of the state of the global economy. If you look back to around 2006/2007 people on Ebay were paying all kinds of prices for the rare JEMS.

Congrats, the DNA is the King of the Jems and imo the best Jem concept that Ibanez ever came up with. There will never be another like it so hang onto it and don't sell it! Mike (#262)

it's not 08 but the market is just fine and recovering. You just stole it. I'll give you 3500 for it today

None the less I love the guitar, the swirl reminds more of an early ATD UVMC type swirl than some of the DNA's I'm use to seeing. The 3k seems to be quite reasonable I think. I know the market for these guitars isn't exactly booming is it was maybe 6 or 7 years ago.
Ah very cool

IIRC some markets got the case you have, while others have the flight case like I have. The thing about the flight case is, it's HUGE and heavy. Atleast that case is nice and portable!

You got it for steal. You paid 1/2 of what I saw one listed for on ebay early last year. I'm sure the next buyer (if you ever sell it) will pay more than what you did. Unless they find this thread, lol j/k'ing.

Anyway, congrats man! DNA's are so beautiful to look at, and nice to play. After nearly 10 years of ownership. Mine still makes me smile.

10k and we're talking hehe. It's took me 6 years to aquire this one so definitely have no plans to sell. She's a keeper The neck on these guitars feel insanely good. Rich it looks like you have quite a collection going by the pics on your website. Do you still have you're DNA's? are they you're prized assets or is it something else like the JS collection?

Re: NGD - Ibanez JEM DNA

It's still not 2008

I sold 205 when it was new.

I haven't sold any on my collection, but they're not the real prize to me.
