hmmm old or new which jem to get? gmc? white or the new floral?

I'm going to get a Jem soon, and I can't decide between a 77gmc... which I know is hard to find... especially in good condition. Or a new one... either the floral or white one. Prob floral cause I like the colors... but I love the gmc's and I'm willing to wait for one. Provided the one I was looking at is gone. I have a feeling the white ones won't retain as much resale value... floral will b more collectible... gmc's are the ****... what would you guys (or ladies) do?

If cash is no worry to you, then GMC all the way. If you want a cheapish player, go for the VWH.

Cheapish? Do u think the gmc will play that much better? I was under the impression that they were of the same construction...? Equal par on quality...

I think Jeminizer meant cheaper option not regarding the guitars quality just the ticket cost.

Good luck finding a great condish/mint old GMC, if they're mint most people will hold onto them and I don't think there is anyone left who doesn't know the value of them.

Surprise, surprise I would get the GMC if I had the option.

Haha you could make your own! Which I was wondering... if I got a gmc... that was ringed up... then had it reswirled... what would that do to the value? I'm up in the air still... cause I'm gonna play it. I prefer to use them and not let them sit. I don't want to ruin a collector either... should I make this a new thread? I'll search too

Oh that makes sense too, bout the guitar being cheaper, not cheap got it.
