Re: Jem 20th acrylic worth?

Haha, I'm not too worried. I remember trying them in person when I was 13/14 years old and wondering why anybody would spend so much on an acrylic guitar...now here I am a few years later ready to buy one LOL.

Cheers, I think I will nab it then!

Re: Jem 20th acrylic worth?

They're swirls, they're valued by how good they are. There are some that wouldn't sell for $3500 unless somebody was thinking they were getting a deal, which they aren't. Like real swirls, there are very few great ones, I've seen 3.

Yes: LED Module for JEM20TH

I got mine for $ 2800 because the market for JEM's in Norway is unusual low for the moment.
I think it's possible to get a 20th for $ 3000.
I can't judge if this is a good or bad swirl.

Looks awesome man. How do you find it sounds? I have tried those cheap BC rich acrylic models and was never overly impressed.

Re: Jem 20th acrylic worth?

For the moment i use Boss gt8 with the 4 cabel method in a Laney VC50.
It sounds best when using overdrive/delay for hard rock/metall riff's.
Clean sound is ok. But other Jem's is better for that purpose.

If you get one cheap buy one. You will not be disappointed.

Re: Jem 20th acrylic worth?

On a bit of a whim-

Anybody ever dropped the Jem 20th? Does it crack or does it chip, or split? Or does nothing at all happen? I can imagine dropping it and having the weight of itself crack all the way through like when you bite a green apple lolipop
