JEM77GMC - what could this be worth?

Hi folks.

I'm new here, but some people might know me from the vai.com forum ;-) .
I do not own a Jem but I have a question.
A good friend recently bought an Eventide H3000 from a guy who didn't use it anymore.
This person also had a few Jems & a Universe.
One of his guitars seems to be a JEM77GMC that he bought new in the 90s after he had seen Steve on tv with a similar axe. He used to be totally into Vai/Jems during that period.
Nowadays he's playing rockabilly and his main axe is a Gretsch.
But he was curious about how much his JEM77GMC would be worth now.
I didn't see it but my friend told that it was in real good condition.
I don't think that he will ever sell it.
The owner sent some pictures and here they are:

It's worth whatever it sells for.

Realisticly it could fetch € 2500.

Cheers, Sam

I like the busy part near the trem Honestly, European sellers would at least 2500 for it.

I'll double that only, and I say only, because I like the color green! But people really don't collect those, hard to sell. So PM me and I'll send the money, I guess I will. It's not the best swirl and...well, again, no one likes GMCs.

Read next post, if you want.

Re: JEM77GMC - what could this be worth?

OMG that is one of the best swirls I've seen on GMCs! It looks near mint too! If I had the money and because I like GMCs sooooo much I would offer him $4500 and top out at $10,000! But like I said, because I like them and IF I had money to blow! The GMC is one of my favorites, top 3 JEMs for me, maybe top! That is AWESOME!
