Jem 777DY Value

Found this 777DY but the price seems high at $2500. How much is this worth? Whats a fair offer for this one?

Thanks

Re: Jem 777DY Value

It's hard to tell the condition from this pic, but I'm confident in stating that $2500 is too much, regardless of condition. I'd put it anywhere between $1100-1700

$2500 is way too much. I would offer around $1500, as that one appears to be in decent condition (from what I can see in the pic, but there could be other stuff going on I cant see).

Re: Jem 777DY Value

Is there a way to identify the year on these?

The first digit of the serial number is the last digit of the year made on these older models. For example, if the serial number is F823167, the it was made in 1988.

At which point no doubt the poster will ask "but the serial is 89xxxx, is this a fake?". When in fact you have provided wrong information.

On these the first two digits of the serial will be the year of production.

Only post '97. Pre '97 only the first number is the year of production.

The neck plate appears to say 87xxxx so that would make it a 1987 model, which is consistent with the original Edge trem (87-90)

If it does happen to be an 87, that might be interesting to some collectors.
Fretboard looks worn.

Re: Jem 777DY Value

I just scored a exc+ '88 DY for $1250.

YMMV. But $2500 is waaaaay overpriced.

Re: Jem 777DY Value

I sold an extremely clean one for $2700 in 08'. Don't let these guys talk about their $1250 player condition guitars and try to tell you another price is way too high. It's all about condition, does it have it or not.

Re: Jem 777DY Value

Don't know what the US market is like but here in the UK '89 DY and SKs in perfect condition go for around the £2k mark (about $2500).

From there out just adjust price for condition and how much you want it, you might always regret not picking one up to save a few hundred bucks if really love 'em.
