I need you guys' expertise one more time, please. Authentic Floral?

PS, this is not a live auction, it has ended.

Anything that glares out at you guys? I didn't find anything, but as a newbie to the Jem world, I'd like to be sure.

I promise, I tried not to bug you guys again! But I don't trust myself just yet.

Thanks

That actually looks pretty good to me. The only thing is they obviously replaced the volume knob with a yellow one, but I don't think that's a big deal at all. And for $1350 that is a pretty good price, because it seems to be in decent condition. It definitely has some cosmetics, but what can you expect for a 20 year old guitar?

It looks authentic. There were different variations of floral pattern and that appears to be correct.

Kind of what I thought about the knobs, other than that I didnt find anything. Its definitely seen some use, but like you say, what 20 year old guitar hasnt. Im not really worried about the wear. I want to actually be able to play the thing, not sit on the shelf because Im afraid to ding it.


thanks man

That one will be a good one to start with. I'm sure it will be fine, and have a lot of mojo!

Yup, looks like a nice score for that price. I miss my floral a lot, congrats on the choice score.

Well, I havent got it yet, and Im not getting it for that cheap, although my offer is close. I'm waiting on the seller to respond to my last email and shore up the details.

I'll keep everyone posted, hopefully there will be a new addition to the guitar family soon to come here and brag about!

He ended it early a week or so ago with no explanation. I emailed him and asked him what happened and if he was relisting, and said it was selling locally. He emailed me today and said the guy backed out and was relisting tonight, but was going to give me first shot.

I would tread very carefully. Michigan is a long way from Texas...

That thought has crossed my mind. I'd only pay with paypal so there would be some (albeit a small) chance of being able to fix any problems. If anything starts to smell fishy I'll pass. So far nothing has given me a red flag.

Well, I guess he didn't like my offer, he relisted. Man, I swear, I'm just not meant to have one of these I guess.

$1700 seems a little steep for one in that condition, but maybe I'll have a moment of weakness and bid.

Nah, don't do it. $1700 is steep for one in that condition IMO.
