is the 10th anniversary obtainable???

When I am in the market (trust me Im not there yet) how much can I expect to pay for the 10th anniversary model. Do they pop up for sale every now and then or am I just dreaming.

Hey!

I managed to get one in MINT condition last month!

They don't usually pop out nowadays on the market!

Still i know two places where you can buy one!
Send me a pm!

Cheers,
H.

I see people asking $3500
I got mine for $2000 in 8.5 out of 10 condition with an Ibanez case, not the 10th case.

Its like anything built in limited numbers , just keep diligently looking and you'll eventually get one. Took me 2 years to find mine and I managed to get a JS Crystal Planet I'd been searching for the same week.
Then a week later up popped my JS Chrome Boy.

If you've got a guitar for sale you need to list it in the Classified Ads, and in accordance with the rules we have here you need to post a price.

Well, actually, it's not really for sale: I love my 10, and use it everyday.

However, why not admit that, if presented with a truly interesting offer, I could perhaps consider it?

Just hope this doesn't violate the rules.

Well, "the rules", apparently, are designed for "buyer's market" ; however, as the 10th is probably the rarest and most desirable Jems, its market is a seller's market, not a buyer's one. Therefore, by requesting a price to be published, it seems to me the rules are designed for the wrong market, and tend to devaluate the goods - aren't they? :-)

With a production of 872 nobody should consider the 10th in the "rare" class of JEM's. I don't even consider LNG's rare with 777 available.

Well, isn't "nobody should" is a little bit too assertive?

IMHO, "nobody should" try and impose their opinion on others, chap - but I won't say that "nobody should" disconsider your opinion, nor consider mine, right?

And, as you're talking of "available", I'd suggest you consider how many 10ths are available _on the market_. Then, please feel free to come back to me with your opinion, which I "should" probably consider as a prominently clever one, shouldn't I ?

Have a nice day.

I've got 2 in stock right now. There's always a few 10ths for sale somewhere at any given time, as I said, not a rare guitar, chap.

Re: is the 10th anniversary obtainable???

Well, Rich, you're a professional VENDOR, whose interest is to devalate the goods in the owner's hands, and overevaluate it in the buyer's eyes. And, as you're a middle man, I'd tend to wish you live final users alone here.

Then, as I said, you're free to have hour opinion, and I'm free to ignore it.

Then again, as you have 2 10ths in stock, please feel free to tell me how many are signed by steve vay himself ? I'll certainly admit it's not important to who doens't care - exacty as my opinion, despite it was asked by this post's originator, and exactly as yours, despite the same, I assume.

Re: is the 10th anniversary obtainable???

So I'm overevaluating the 2 I have but telling everybody, as I always have, they are not rare guitars?

1 signed, and I wish it wasn't. Signed guitars are HARDER to sell than virgin examples.

Feel free to ignore the truth all you want, it won't change it

Re: is the 10th anniversary obtainable???

I would like a 10th one day, but when I look for one, I will be looking for one that isn't signed.

The signature means something for someone that managed to show Vai their guitar and get him to sign it, and touch it. To me, it means nothing.
