Oh ok. well thats at least good right? like a jem could go for as much as 5000 depending on the type right. and it says on this site that the price it used to be was 1500 so i guess 700 off is a good deal. i like looking at it this way. 100 dollars for each year takin off. its a 99 so 99 - 2006 is like 700 dollars. counting 1999. so it has to be a great deal.
Oh and one more thing. Drow Swordsman. was the neck on your universe warped or like good as new? because like how i posted first. my dad is really anal about the neck being warped because ever since he got screwed in buying a chibanez
It's fantastic. Remember we're talking about Japanese quality Ibanez's here, not Chibanez fakes.
Also remember there are other things to look over other than trying to get a Jem for a good price: that's how you got screwed over in your Chibanez. Now I don't mean to be over-judging, but it seems the money you have (or your dad has maybe in this case) is burning a hole in your pocket and you just want a Jem. Well that's not always the best way to look at things.
Do you know all the specs of a DBK? Do you LIKE the specs? Breed pups, screwhead inlay, and the finish look great to me, but certainly not to everyone. Sometimes saving up a bit more for what you want is better than spending what you have for something that is a "compromise" for what you truly want.
And sure I know getting the money for a Jem/UV isn't easy for a kid, but here's the scoop: I'm about to turn 16. I decided awhile ago I really wanted a UV777PBK, and I truly worked my ass off to get the money for it, and am working my ass off to completely pay it off.
So it's possible to get a Jem/UV without your dad buying it for you or trying to scrounge up a good deal.
And the year made really doesn't make a difference in this case. 2003 and 2004 DBK's still go for around $800-900.
