Ok, im super new here, total guitar newb, i dont even know how to play a guitar. Always love rock, metal, grunge, etc etc. I can also appreciate talented musicianship, i do own a drum set, but i suck.
So as of the past few years i've really started listening to Steve Vai, and am blown away by his playing. So it got me thinking on maybe trying guitar.
Now im also into antique, vintage and collectable things, anything that floats my boat really.
So long story short, id love to pick up a vintage Jem to start playing on. I found this 1990 Jem 777vbk for sale and id like you jem freaks opinion, ill attach some pics, but i know pics are hard to judge.
The seller says it does have a buzzing fret, im guessing the fret is loose, he said it would possibly have to be reglued on.
It has 2 paint chips as seen in the pics, one scratch on the back of the head stock, and the tremolo looks oxidized a bit, im guessing its in "good" shape for 28 years old. He says the finish is still really good. So i offered him $1550, He said he doesnt hate the offer and will think about it.
Also, if i were to refurbish this, while keeping it original, will the value improve or be negatively effected.
How does fixing paint chips and re fretting effect value?
So all information from you guys would be appreciated
