Re: Jem LNG #666 Value Poll

To be any kind of accurate you would need all the details on the guitar.
EXACT critical condition evaluation.
What is the package, what case, paperwork, etc.
Pictures of the actual guitar to judge by.

You're right of course, but I was under the impression that question refered more to the "unique nature" of the 666 rather than the guitar itself.

and surely 777 would be the actual valuable one along with 7 and 77?

Re: Jem LNG #666 Value Poll

No guitar is only valued by it's edition number, the number just adds a premium to what the base guitar is worth.

#1 the most valuable, followed by 777. Whatever other numbers are special to individuals past that [88 to the Chinese, obviously 666 to the satanic ]

Until you posted that I was (everything else with the guitars being equal) all "Yeah I'd definately pay more for 777" now I'm thinking, "Yeah, but number 1 is number1" which, I guess is how the "market" feels too

Well my guess would be that #666 would be a later, Japanese market guitar. So right off the bat it wouldn't have the special case with the serial number plaque.

Wow, that is a fact! I did not know that... far out!

Isn't it weird how people are attached to certain numbers? I mean it's true someone would probably pay more for #1 over #2 too, even though the guitars will be, to all intents and purposes, identical. Although I imagine Vai has #1 so I can see the added value of this particular guitar!

Exactly, overseas model with signed trem cover, but it's been 10 years and I don't remember. But absolutely all of that matters to what it's worth as a guitar, before adding on the premium for a desirable number.

No doubt it's a desirable number. No doubt if a satanic Vai fan that always dreamed of owning LNG666 hit the Powerball for 300 uberlarge, he'd pay you one millllliiiion dollars for it, on his road to bankruptcy in 10 years

If you can find the deep money that is willing to pay what you would take to part with it, you have every right to boast that's what it's worth. But you have to sell it to prove it

Otherwise we have to value it on what we think it's worth. Good LNG's are desirable and expensive guitars. There was a charity auction LNG that sold for $10k on Long Island 15 years ago, at a time market valuation was around $3000 for good ones. I think Ed Roman was only asking $7,777 for them at the time

Right now I'd value

LNG #1 - $20-25,000. It's got a little chip that may deter the big money.
LNG #777 - $15-20,000.

These guitars are both Hoshino USA cased, with important provenance. The guitars and packages are the most desirable of all LNG's. What #666 is worth depends on what it is, plus whatever somebody will pay you for the number. If #666 is HUSA cased, cool gliphs, super clean sitting in it's pale pink lined with plaque and all docs, i'd definitely give you a valuation of $10k+ on it. If it's overseas, with signed cover in gray cardboard case with no docs or tools, played in board, and a few small blems, I'd have to call it more in the $6,666 range. If I had to give an insurance valuation that's the area I'd be thinking, unless you can convince me otherwise. You can always prove your point by selling it for $15,000, and no doubt there might be somebody out there that would pay it, but until you do, I'll stick with my valuation

Re: Jem LNG #666 Value Poll

Number 2 takes more effort though. So shouldn't that be more valuable? :P
