JEM 10th value??

I found this one yesterday...it played very well, has 5 paint chips (to the wood) Lo-Pro has some pitting, 2 marks on the face (impressions on the clear). No Case or candy.......I made an offer of $1600 not knowing if I was screwing them or myself.

What do you guys think?? It's definitely in players condition. lots of chrome worn off of the pups, but the guard is beautiful as well as the headstock plate. It's #125.

Edit: I forgot to add, they're asking $2300

Re: JEM 10th value??

I would have thought $1600 or $1700.
Was it at GC?

Yes, it's at GC in Joliet......they're including an M100c or M150c case with it too, which makes me wonder if it was originally sold in a different market.

Did you get to see it? They said it came from a store in Oregon, but who knows?

As far as edge chips go, these were very minor. Two of them were touched up.....badly. The others were ranges from 3/8" to 3/4" but were only about 1.5mm wide on the edge between the back and side.

Hey man,

If they accept 1600, think of it as an early Christmas gift!

That's kind of what I was thinking....LOL

It's in players condition which is perfect for me. I'm no collector, and I don't own anything worthy of a collection.

Did you see the one on the bay which is taking offers? Asking is $2,195 and it comes with a case. Don't know if the condition would be acceptable for some ;-)

Re: JEM 10th value??

I think $1600 for a JEM10 in this condition, you're lowballing him to be honest. If they're asking $2300 without case, that sounds about right to me.

Congrats if you get it, if you don't ask, you don't get

Re: JEM 10th value??

Definately a player by the sounds of it. It's only worth as much as one is willing to pay as they say. Great opportunity. Are you willing to go a bit higher if they come back at you? Based on some of the comment here regarding price you could do no wrong. Get it before some hack grabs it and suport SAVE A JEM DAY!

If that was in Australia for that price it would be on it's way home with me right now.

Re: JEM 10th value??

From what I've seen prices are falling due to lack of cash in a lot of people pockets.
