Jem77 BFP DNA

Hi guys,

I'm new here at the forum, and joined mainly because I realized I have an original everything Jem77 BFP, w/ original HSC (I'll post some pics later today), The guitar is in amazing condition but for a fadded neck plate-- and I haven't kept up on the popularity of this guitar.

This is where you all come in... Pros/Cons, comments and suggestions-- anything to help me figure out if I should hang on to it, or sell it. I'm not sure about the current day value of these, as I can't find ANY like it on eBay currently for sale.

Thanks in advance, for your assistance

I'm just wondering what the toggle switch does.

I figured something like that. That will probably diminish the resale value, as most folks seemingly like JEMs in the original condition. It looks to be in great shape.

Re: Jem7 BFP DNA

Coil tap definitely hurts resale.

Thanks for the input. Most appreciated... I'm probably going to unload it, and so-- am doing research, at what I figure is the most likely place I'll get good info.

Re: Jem7 BFP DNA

It depends, some of the regular florals go for as low as 1100ish all the way up to nearly 2800.

Check out the sold listings on ebay, i know its a different guitar but they've always gone for roughly the same amount.

I'm not sure about $3k, but $2k and a little above I could see. That said, there are other members of this site that know more about this than I do.
