JEM 777 LNG

I have a JEM 777 LNG that I bought way back in the 80’s that I’m thinking about selling. It has the disappearing pyramids and is signed and numbered 220. I wanted to know just how rare it is and the price I should expect. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks

Re: JEM 777 LNG

It depends on condition really. If the guitar is in really good nick, no scratches or dings, in the original case (which is also in good condition), neck is straight and clean (i.e. no roaching or dirt and grime on the fingerboard) then you can expect to get $3500+ for it based on recent sales online and elsewhere that I have seen.

Maybe post a link to some pics, the forum would have a better idea if we could see the guitar.

Re: JEM 777 LNG

idk, i just saw a lng posted for a while at 1950...it was up for a while and had no bids until the end of the auction, when i saw it get one bid. idk how it ended but if i remember correctly it did end at 1950....its weird when you try to price jems because the fluctuates so much all the time....eventually comes down to how bad someone wants the guitar!

Re: JEM 777 LNG

LNG prices vary greatly depending on number (777 were made), condition and palm rest. Saying yours is Mint condition with palm rest your looking at $3000 to $5000 Note that "Mint" also includes hanging tags, original hardcase and all case candy.

Re: JEM 777 LNG

ya, idk man...the values of jems are nuts, i mean i wouldnt spend over 1300 for a jem dy, and one (with palmrest) sold for 4500 on ebay the other day!

after talking to some of my jemsite homies, that leads me to believe that there are people that post their guitars up and buy them with their own money, (through a friend probably) just boost the prices. which it works, because i was talking to a guy on craigslist the other day about buying his dy...until he said he wanted at least 4,000 usd for it. so ya, those questions scare me too wolfram....i hate people like that!

Re: JEM 777 LNG

As long as were on the subject, how about a 777 missing the case/back plate w/ autograph, original volume knob, and with a partially wiped off headstock logo?






sorry i didnt mean to hijack this thread, just wondering what a roughed up jem would go for as opposed to a mint one

Re: JEM 777 LNG

I just sent a link to the pics to Pezz to post for me as I do not have enough posts here to post the link myself. Thanks for all of the feedback so far. As I said in my original post I'm just looking to get an idea of fair market value should I decide to sell it. I'm not looking to retire off of the sale, but don't want to let it go too cheap either.

Well, it has the palmrest, so that adds $2,000 to the value right there, apparently. See post #57 of this thead.....

Re: JEM 777 LNG

For the OP's LNG - stunning. Outstanding speciment.

... BUT, it bothers me that the high e string is entirely missing.
It's living with 'unnatural' string tension...
