Guitar Center Price Quotes For My Jems and Uv's....omg.

Okay guys, so I have decided that I am going take ever Jem I own and bring the to guitar center up the road and ask them how much they will buy it for.

Here's the lineup so far

Jem777sk in mint with ohsc- 1,000$

Jem7vsbl, decent condition, non original case- they didn't want it

Jem77gmc, near mint with non original case-1,200$

Jem777lng mint with ohsc and all docs-yet to be determined...I'm going up there today lol

Uv777bk good condition ohsc- 800$

Uv777bk with killswitch, good condition non-ohsc- 800$

Jem777dy, amazing condition ohsc- 900$

Jem777vsk mint with ohsc- didn't really want it lol

Jem777vdy near mint, ohsc etc- 1,000$

That's it so far. I only do this because I like jamming up there and I think it's funny to talk to guitar center about Jems, because they don't know anything about them.
I'll keep ya posted on my other jems value lol

What do you expect, I've never been to a guitar that will buy a used instrument for anywhere near market value, they are out to make a profit and out side of the small Jemsite community there really isn't a huge demand for pink 80s guitars no matter how nice they are.

I'm not even sure why you would waste your time taking your guitars to a Guitar Center? Seriously not even worth the gas of driving over there, unless you were already there to buy other stuff.

The only time GC will offer you good value on a guitar is if you're trading it in and paying the massively inflated price of one of their high end guitars. So they're giving you fair value on the trade, but then charging you way above market value for something like a Les Paul.

And also, haven't you sold or traded most of the guitars you have in that list anyway? I know you sold the GMC a few weeks ago and I thought you traded the SK and DY to get the LNG?

Re: Guitar Center Price Quotes For My Jems and Uv's....omg.

They're not for sale dudes, just guitars I've brought in in the past, some i still have some i dont. I have a buddy who always likes to go and jam and it's right up the street from me. Some of these guitars are sold, obviousley, I've already had pm's from people trying to buy them haha sorry for the confusion. It just makes me laugh knowing that we're the only people who would pay big money for these guitars and nobody else is really too interested in pink 80's guitars as stated earlier lol

What makes you think that the price they would sell them for bears any relation to the price they would pay you?

They have to turn a profit, that's why their price is low. I was talking about how not many people who aren't complete Jem nuts like us, have no interest in Jems. It's my favorite thing, but the majority of people could care less about jems....not a super great point, but that is my point lol

Some even claim there's something wrong with them, they mention a hole of some sort. I don't get it. That said, a Jem is not my main guitar anymore. I'm too serious to be seen with a pink toy.

The funny thing is that if they have been doing any semblance of research to determine a correct and fair value of the guitar(s), then this site would very likely come up......and subsequently this thread (given the title). Could be pretty embarrassing on both fronts really.....
