Re: 30th Anniversary Jems effect on Value of Originals
Over time, it's been proven reissues have fared better than originals. PG20ths sell far higher than PGM100's, JEM77FP15ths will sell higher than any vintage FP in like condition and on par with 88' models. UV77RE's, one sold in Europe for $11,000 a couple years ago. Any original ATD come close to that? [rhetorical question...].
The SK is a much more modern SK than the original [if they keep the color the same, they were talking about changing it], the DY is very close and will not brown over years like the originals, and the LG [don't know why they called it that] I held up to #1 in the Bensalem collection, and #1 is a hair lighter and a few shades more amber, because the clear has yellowed, something modern paints don't do. The specs are modern and they will be better guitars, especially considering what old guitars have, lots of old guitar problems. The 30ths are also going to be FAR rarer and that rarity will have a greater impact than the rest.
Yes, there will be an affect of the value of the originals, no matter how much sellers make claims of "mojo".
