Current Pricelevel Ibanez Jem Y2KDNA

This question probably has been posted many times before, but the value of these guitars seem to change by the day.
I found a Jem Y2KDNA in prestine condition, including the tools and certificate, with lots of red. It was bought by a collector once, who never played it and only kept it in its case.
However, the person who’s selling it is asking serious money.
Can anyone tell me what’s a reasonable price for such a DNA now days ???

The swirl banner that says Rich Harris' IBANEZ RULES!! is actually safe to click on and you will find prices for DNA's recently sold if you search around a bit. Also, Rich will probably post a comment or two.

DNA's sell for serious money. $8000 - $9000 seems to be the general price range but people more knowledgeable than I may have something different to say on the matter.

Re: Current Pricelevel Ibanez Jem Y2KDNA

You summed it up pretty much as far as I know.

One year ago, Rich had six DNAs. I'm now the happy owner of one of those. Then a few more popped up a few months later.

If memory serves (and age doesn't hinder the process), they ranged from 7.5k to 8.5K USD.

They were all in mint condition, sometimes with very small issues.

On *bay they go for 10K, and are far from the instruments Rich delivers.

Is that in the range the guy is asking for ?

Do you have links to this wonder ?

Re: Current Pricelevel Ibanez Jem Y2KDNA

Realistically they seem to sell for around 7000 or so. I've seen them go for less as a friend has one he bought two years ago for 5500 USD.

Re: Current Pricelevel Ibanez Jem Y2KDNA

All the DNA's Fred sold he intended to leave headroom in to move them, and most of them had issues, wrong case, no paperwork, wrong paperwork, blems, etc. And none of them were killers. Great DNA's are 10k and up. Issues hurt values quite a bit but in some cases that's the only way a price becomes reasonable. At the height of the exchange rate good ones were selling in Euro near $15000 USD converted.

The one that catched my eye is the one on *bay indeed. Just about a one hour drive away from me. What do you guys think of it? Should I do it?

Soon or later you will probably regret, if you skip it.

Just checked ebay and get this message on the listing:-

"This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available"

Not sure if you're allowed to have a link on this forum, but see below

Looking forward to your pictures and feedback.

Ebay can be a gamble, but this DNA looks incredibly good.
