Jem 10th's certificate YES or NO?

Is it true that some Jem 10ths did not include the letter of certification?

Just wanted to know, I'm thinking about buying one of these...

THX Fred

Yes, it's true that some (particularly in Europe) had no certificate.

My Jem10th has a Cert.... However, neither of my 2 Jem20ths came with a cert....

FYI - I would consider selling my Jem10th. Feel free to drop me a PM.

Any of them are great axes. Look for condition not serial number.

Perhaps because the 20th weren't numbered and didn't have a cert, ya think....?

Just always found it strange that Ibanez would put out such a limited number of extremely high priced guitars without "papers".

Some may try to charge more for a lower serial number, this is the case with everything and it's up to you as a collector versus you as a player whether a lower serial number is important.

The other influence on this is that at the time dealers were told that there would be a run of 500 guitars, but over 800 ended up being produced. Thus, some folks feel that a sub 500 serial number is important to them.
