Green JEM77BFP

I had an oppoturnity to evaluate a BFP which turned out to be green instead of Blue. Granted the BFP is a player and over 10 years old, I would appreciate your expert opinions on how rare and valuable this axe is? The condition is excellent++ for a player and color is not due to coat yellowing.

Thanks guys

WIthout authentication from Hoshino/Ibanez I think it's probably worth no more than standard BFP. Just because "the bloke says" is not enough to get me to shell out extra cash for what could be a freaky chemical reaction.

I think if Rich or Glen can show up with some info you'll have a far far more accurate view of the rarity and value of a green player condition BFP.

If I remember correctly, this issue has been brought up before about a year ago or so. *Somebody had a "green" BFP, and the discoloration was most likely due to the paper overlay fading because of constant exposure to lighting. *If it was hanging in a store for a while, and the store had fluorescent lighting, that could certainly turn a BFP into a GFP. *

I think that the the time the last Green FP came up, the comparison was made to what happens to a newspaper if you leave it out in the sun for a couple of days-the ink turns greenish and fades a bit. *

Just my hypothesis though.

It has come up before - twice - do a search for 'green bfp' and you'll find (at least) two threads.

hmmmmm...

Got any pics of the guitar and the serial number?

Are the pickups directly mounted to the guitar or to the pickguard? *The BFPs with direct mounted were part of a late run and are rarer than the other BFPs. Somtimes the late run BFPs have a 25***** serial number. I personally prfer the look of the pickguard mounted pickups BFPs.

However if the colour is faded this will lessen the value for most people. *There is a guide to BFP pricing on Jemsite.

Can you put any pics of the guitar on a website? Alternatively if you can email someone pics (me for example) I can post them here so you could get an evaluation from everybody.

Best wishes

Simon

Well, its tough to get pics as he has already taken the "gfp" back with him. To think of it now, the pickups were slightly faded and probably vaijem777's take on it is probably true. Although, he says this is not the case.

Looking back I think the value would be depreciated somewhat as the condition was most defintely a player.

Thanks for the info Guys!!!

It's the clear that yellows over time on some of them. *Thus yellow and blue make green. *So it's actually a little less valuable.
