Help with rare Jem valuation

I have a Jem I bought new in the early 90's and have played ever since. I'm now looking to sell it, but no-one can find anything online of anything that looks remotely like it. its a marble swirled, disappearing pyramid inlays most similar to the guitar on the cover of Passion and Warfare, but other than the new 25 year anniversary ones now, there's no mention of this existing anywhere. I can't seem to upload pictures to show you what I mean.
I figured I'd start with the biggest fans and experts of these amazing guitars and ask if anyone has any ideas. thanks for the honor of being part of this group!

Maple board with purple in the swirl would be a PMC.

You can email me pics if you wish

I would love to show the pictures, but I keep getting file too large error messages on the forum no matter how small I resize the jpgs.

Yes, PMC. Condition and swirl is everything. Swirl is not great, has typical pink fade, but they are still rare guitars and in demand. The better they are the more they're worth of course.

What country are you in, you will probably find a buyer on Jemsite. If that was local to me I'd probably be interested.

send photos so that we can notice it who knows it is a rarity with the PMC,for the description it seems to be the JEM77 PMC 271 were manufactured in the world completely and she is one of the rarest, due to few manufactured unities and the rarity of one in the days of today.
