Buy it or not ??? JS 1000 Bp

Found a used JS 1000 BP for about U$ 890 cased. (SKB small one but cased)

Near perfect, minimum fret wear and minimun scratchs.

Really got an Jem 7 DBK and an Strat copy Fernandes Japan.

What do you think ? My hands are impacient with the money .......... arghhh.

Buy or not ???????

Arghhhh.......

The only problem is that with the money i can pay about1/3 of my new Honda CBX

No problem, but you should import from Brazil, on the other side of the world.

Ugh, the total cost with the shipping will be something like the one I found. But I think you should buy that one

But I think your dbk is enough and you should save money and buy a really great guitar. For example dna or a chromeboy but js1000 is really cheap. Diffucult situation. I'd save the money

A JS1000 is just as good as a Chromeboy. Just not as exclusive.

You can get JS1000/2000s brand new for 900 bucks! And with a bit of haggling, you *just might* be able to get them to throw in a case!

Maybe in the USA, you can.

Remember, things are very different in markets around the world. Several European, Australian and South American Jemsiters frequently lament the poor distribution and high prices on Ibanez products where they live. We're pretty lucky here in North America. Not as lucky as those in Japan, but pretty lucky.

$900 for a cased JS1000 in good condition sounds like a good deal for Brazil.

I don't need to say nothing more, you're right. I contact the seller (by phone) last night and make a visit to the guitar. Not really to the guitar but only to the seller's home door and even making a appointment i stay there about half hour waiting, calling the dude and nothing ........ i think there's nobody home, so i came back to my house (20km distant). I was in my motorcycle (if i like the guitar i will came back with money and by car).

When i arrive in my home the seller call me that he was waiting and bla bla bla......... and i talk him that i don't was interested anymore.

I'm going to visit my cousin in Spain, so the money will turn into Euros and Air Pass...............


Thanks all.
