Re: Ibanez Jem UK prices
After the initial Sterling crash the prices of all imported goods from Japan or the US rose, (as you'd expect) however the UK £ has been pretty stable at its low value for a while now, so the fairly recent increase from £1900 to £2200 must have been a result of Ibanez price increases or UK dealers taking the pi55.
I remember new Jems being sold for just under £1000 back in 1990. (Couldnt afford one then!). A couple of the larger US based guirat stores are selling the Jem at £2,599.99, thjis equates to £1760 at todays rate. Pre-crash it would have been more like £1370 - so that almost accounts for the initial £500 price hike over here I guess. Dont know about the more recent hike.
