Jem DNA Value?

What do they go for mint with all original goodies, bodybag, etc...?

I see prices all over the map on Ebay and have no idea what is reasonable, it looks like about 6k?

Re: Jem DNA Value?

I'd say you're right.

It will always depend on the beauty of the swirl though and the pocket of the buyer.

Re: Jem DNA Value?

Yeah thats what I figured, they dont seem to pop up enough to be able to accurately figure out a price.

Im not too concerned about what the swirl looks like, I just want a guitar with Vai's blood on it

Good point, I do wish it was a bit thicker...I'm pretty happy with the DNA on my swirl though.

Re: Jem DNA Value?

That depends on how much Steve's blood was put into it.

Re: Jem DNA Value?

I don't know about the value of a DNA, but I always wondered if Steve's DNA could be extracted and viable enough that scientists could make a clone of Vai?

That would have to make the values skyrocket if it was possible right?

Re: Jem DNA Value?

It has never been done before that putting someones blood into the paint.

Imagine when Steve Vai dies. This i think will be the highest value guitar for a long long time..... When he is dead and people who remember him who give a crap.... it wil be 20k up from 5000 ($8000) or 7100 Euros.

Re: Jem DNA Value?

As already said, it depends on the swirl and the condition. A DNA in almost pristine condition with a nice swirl should not go for 6k. But with a little bit luck you can find a used one for that money. The glowing in the dark fretboard inlay is one of the special features of a DNA, and the shown custom "DNA" neck is far, far away from an original.
