Changing parts on collectable Jems - ... does it change the
I'm just wondering if the worth of a collectable guitar like the GMC or FP or DNA or whatever, will be affected if the original parts are replaced with newer ones. For example, if the trem is badly pitted, will replacing it for a brand new one affect the value? What about like the neck plate? (Does Ibanez still even manufacture neck plates?).
Another thing I noticed is that of the collectables, only DNAs are trackable to serial numbers. How come something like the GMC is not tracked to like xxx/366?
