Jem 77 PMC

Hi,
I have a Jem 77 PMC that I'm going to be selling and I was wondering if you could tell me what I can expect to get for it. It's about 70 to 80% mint. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.

Might need some more details. Any damage to neck or anything that affects playability or just cosmetic damage? I'll leave the estimating to someone more qualified. Peace

No defects that would affect playability, the neck (including fretboard), body and headstock are all in great shape. There are a couple of nicks and dings in the headstock and body but nothing huge.

PMC value

The PMC is one of the most valuable Steve Vai Ibanez models, but 70%-80% condition doesn't sound very good. Is the damage in the finish/body and neck, or is it hardware? If all it needs is a new trem, knobs, pickups, etc. it'd probably be worth it for you to replace the parts before you sell it. But if the finish is damaged, you'll have to lower your expectations.

I don't really have a good idea what less-well-preserved swirls go for, but I know that mint ones sell from $1500 or $1750 on up (sometime, way up!). Definitely tell the group exactly what is wrong with the guitar -- then, people around here who are smarter and more experienced than I can give you a better estimate. In any case, it's an awesome guitar. Best of luck!

You will have to post some pics before anyone can give any advice. A perfect PMC could go for 2200 or more. But if it has several dings or chips, the price will suffer greatly.

That sounds not entirely unreasonable considering its age and assuming its been played regularly. You should be easily able to get $2k+ depending on condition... maybe $2.5k+ if the dings are very minor and the hardware isn't corroded. These guesstimates are based purely on what I've seen them sell for.

The good thing about guitars like the Jem PMC/GMC/10th... limited production run, and a tendency to appreciate in value. It's like real estate... if your neighbour sells his house for X, if yours is similar, you too can ask that price.
