is this a deal? - found still new js700

I found a new js700 in a "classical" instrument store.
They had a few guitars in the corner, one was
a never-been-sold js700 for $400. I talked him
down to 365 and told him i'd come in later.
my concern is that there's a possibility i may be laid off
in a few months (the old dot-com dead pool) and
i want to know if i could at least get my money
back in pretty short order if need be.
Any opinions?

Thanks,
Mike

be sure to check if it's a japanese or a korean model.

The Korean has the "joe satriani" inlay, and the japanese has the "JS Custom" inlay.

I think if it's new, then it's a good price for a Korean JS and a wicked price for Japanese. *I think the JS700 is Korean though, that one and the JS100.
Just buy the guitar dude, you can always sell a kidney or something! :biggrin: LOL

Thanks for that piece of info!
I can't remember which it had, but i'll definitely
take a look.
Besides workmanship differences and monetary value,
is anything else
different between the two (neck, etc.)

Thanks,
Mike

It will be Korean, the 100 and 700 both are I believe.

Actually there are some 700's that have the 'F' prefix denoting Japanese production, on a few at least.

yeah, there are both korean and japanese JS700...

I had a japanese model, and it had the "JS CUSTOM" inlay - like my js1000.
