Which do you think is the worst selling Jem?

Just looking at the Jem77VBK thread and I'd be willing to wager I think that'll be the worst seller 'Jem-wise' so far since a) it's black in a time when most Jem enthusiasts are asking for anything BUT black b) seems to be a leftovers guitar (from the Jem77BRMR.)

I could be wrong though.

How about you guys?

Re: Which do you think is the worst selling Jem?

I dunno Davey. Seems a lot of people like the looks and a lot of people that didn't care for the ~flashy~ Jems really like it.

I think the VSBL will forever remain the worst selling Jem. (during it's run) The world is blind

And nothing wrong with it being leftover from the Brmr. The Brmr is an amazing guitar


Anyone care for some pics???

Re: Which do you think is the worst selling Jem?

I honestly think the VSBL will boom on the used market eventually. In fact, I'm quite suprised it didn't sell as well as it should. Maybe if it had Breeds or something to differentiate between the VSBL and VWH eh?

Well yeah that about the BRMR is exactly my point. I'd take one of those any day over the new VBK.

Wasn't that through Hoshino's choice though?

I think quite a few of those sold but most got wrecked due to the easily damaged finish.

Machinehead have had a VSBLfor months it started at £1400 now down to £1200 - It's tempting ...

Yep, but that's still the number they sold. - Hey you didn't ask which was the least popular

Just looked back, 271.

Taking PMC and collectors Jems out of the equation, what's the lowest selling *attainable* (to your average Jem-buyer) Jem then?

Good call I forgot that the PMC sold less than 300 !!!

In the new terms then .... I'd think it's probably the more recent "non-white" ones then, the VSBL is a likely candidate as are the BSB and the BRMR and new VBK.

I thinkit's as much to do with Steve's associated with the White JEM as it is anything else
