Steve,
The guy I bought my DBK from has a 90. *Not sure what all you want....here's the catch:

he doesn't have the certificate or the original case.

I think his price was around $1100. *

Email me if you're at all interested, and I'll get you his email address.

It would take me awhile, but I found a new one in TX for $1800 from a dealer. *I should be able to track it back down.

Good Luck!
Chris

Steve, G.C. in Arlington Hts had a 90th, I'm not sure if they still do. It's used and has been there for at least two years. They originally wanted $2800 and I told them they would never sell it at that price. About two months ago they finally lowered the price. It's not in the best of shape, scratched pickguard, missing knobs, and the trem was completely out of whack. But, with a little work it will be an excellent guitar. I think the price is now $1800 or something like that. I'm going there this afternoon and I'll check to see if it's still there. ---ron

I just saw one advertised here for 198,000 Yen which comes to about 1600.00 but they might go lower than that. Then you have to factor in shipping of course which can go anywhere from 50-90.00 depending on where you live. I'll keep a look out.

Japanese guitar magazines. They have tons of ads in them. I just look thru them all and if I see something that catches my eye(Jem, JS) then I just ask my Japanese friends for the translation and go from there.

Congrats on your '90 shredmaster.
You just need a '10 now to have a complete collection of JEM anniversary models. Are you sure you're finished collecting
