Any idea's on the real street price of the JEM 20th?

Hi Guys,

I have heard rumors of the list price of the 20th Jem being close to $7K. I was quoted $4999 for one today by a dealer. Is this good, bad, average?

Does anyone know what the real "Street Price" should be?

Best,
RG

I usually get 35% dicount on all my Ibanez guitars. That was the case in all my anniversary Jems including 10th, 90th, DNA and 15th.

Can you hook me up with one then? I'll give you 100 bucks extra for your hookup fee.

Sorry for the late reply Jimmy.
well... regardless of 100 dollar hookup fee, I'll give you the contact info on this retailer. Just e-mail me. I just don't think it's right for me to make a public announcement on Jemsite about a particular dealer in the presence of other retailers/sponsors who support this site.

Today I was told by a large guitar retailer that the UK price will be just over 2000.

Wow, you have Guitar Centers with bumbling fools that don't know one model from the next over there too?

[no offense to the couple GC employees here that actually have a clue]

Hi Mark, It was Simon at GAK, he described the guitar in detail so he wasnt talking about the Jem77V-BK. I hope he's right Rich, the best news in my opinion was that he confirmed that the UK would be getting a fair few, I half expected us to get none!

UK will definitely get some, that's never a question, but that price is way way off, you should realize this with barely a thought. You'll be looking at double that at the least.

GAK usually are the cheapest around, but they don't have a good reputation for service. But 2k seems way too cheap. I would've thought it would be nearer 5k

As far as UK dealers go I've had pretty good service from GAK, I've returned a Korean made crap Ibanez guitar to them (within the 7 days return period) and some other kit I didnt like and had an instand refund, other shops such as imuso have taken over a week to refund me and take ages to return phone calls. Nevada music shipped me an RG1570 with the strings hanging off and an RG1527 with big chips in the paint around the PUs, so I wont use them again!

Why? Whats the dealer price? If we knew the markup we could form a better price point =) I will give you $100 over dealer dealer cost!
