Question Jem PBK gas...fair price?

I recieved a call from a friend today asking if I would like to buy his Jem 89'pbk. I'm looking for a price to give him. I see $675-$1000 @ few archived postings. The Jem has a couple of body dings, the bridge p/u replaced. Overall, in good shape! I was wanting this guitar a longtime ago, but now I'm not sure?
Please give me some advice?

Re: Jem PBK gas...fair price?

My opinion?

Jem is a Jem, if the guitar have some dents, that is aesthetic and I think that do not make the guitar, I think that the most important thing to check if the guitar is an original Jem, then check if the arm is not twisted, check if you feel comfortable with her, test the guitar in your personal equipment to feel it, and really see what you're buying ...
the pickup are replaced depending your taste and your style...
Check the model of the Jem, it can give you any idea of the used price.
take a look to many Jem modified in pickups, graphics paints, ect...Jem is a Jem

good luck my friend ...!

Re: Jem PBK gas...fair price?

In my opinion, price is irrelevant at this stage, first things first, go and play it, i have a jem77fp in mint condition, i just bought a jem7dbk with the crap finish, breed pickups, otherwise an inferior jem in most peoples eyes, BUT

I cant put it down, it was made for me, i paid £650 for 7dbk, and i paid £920 for the 77fp, in my opinion the 7dbk is worth twice the 77fp, TO ME...

Its not how it looks, its how the guitars MAKES YOU FEEL....

Hope that helps
