2nd to Last Jem7VSB Made

At my local guitar center they just got in a new Blue Sparkle Jem.. The guy there claimed it was the second to last jem made before it went out of production.. its $2070 which is way more i would even think about paying, but is something like that like more sought after then any other of the blue jems? Even if it was the last one made, would it be more "collectable" or wanted than any of the others?

My guess would be no! I highly doube VSBL's are that sought after, and it sounds like GC is just making up a lame reason to jack up the price!

Whatever, seriously wouldn't believe it. How the hell would he know that anyway? 'Mr Ibanez' told him especially?

Re: 2nd to Last Jem7VSB Made

Even if this thing was the very last JEM7VSBL to be made, I doubt anyone cares. The model was grossly unpopular, and having the last one doesn't change that.

So, even if the guy is telling the truth (and I doubt that also), I don't think the guitar is going to fetch much more than any JEM7VSBL in similar condition.

Re: 2nd to Last Jem7VSB Made

I highly doubt a sales guy at GC can even GET that kind of information, and without supporting documentation and legitimate conformation on Ibanez letterhead regarding that exact guitar and signed and dated by an officer in the Hoshino organization,

you're being hosed.

Typical GC "used-Car Salesman" tactics. Idiots in NH-GC probably don't even know they can get sued for that kind of thing........

Mine too. It took two years for the harshness to bleed out of the wood, but it sounds mellow and cool now. Love it clean with a touch of dirt on the neck position.

Safe to say, it's the most underrated Jem - considering those 2002 VSBL blowout prices...

Re: 2nd to Last Jem7VSB Made

At my local guitar store, there is a blue jem thats been there FOREVER, and no one ever buys it. So the price just keeps lowering, and lowering, and lowering, right now its at about $1,100 or something like that. So ide beleive $2070 is pushing it a little...

Re: 2nd to Last Jem7VSB Made

The Vsbl's are beautiful,,, but not that big of a deal...sort of like the the new BRMR but less expensive. I have had some of the most retarded sales pitches from the dorks at GC. Come on... I wish they would just pay decent wage and stop doing that commission thing. What happens is you get some poor dip **** in there that really doesn't know that much about anything. They resort to lies and stretched truth just to make a sale. GC's are cool to go in and check out. But I can honestly say I have never bought anything from that place. I'd rather go to a small mom and pop shop or buy here or from Rich.
