JEM7RB Root Beer question

I've got an interesting gear question for you guys.

Six months or so ago I picked up my beloved JEM7RB. I researched it a long time before buying, and know all about it. I know that it was sold in '88-89. I also know that mine has a serial number from '87.

What does that mean?

Also, what is it worth (I have zero desire to sell it, I'm just curious)?

Help me out you guys, I'll throw up a few pictures in the morning.

Guitars take some time to make (obviously). They start building the guitars they're going to sell, the year before it actually goes for sale

It's the cheapest from old jem's and probably will stay that way. But still - i like it a lot, don't let it go.

Guitar 77 in Singapore sells a quite decent RB but hardware is all gone and with noticeable dings and scratches. They are quoting SG$3500

That is a daytime robbery... You can get untouched SK for 3000$ and mint DY for 2500$ if not cheaper. Those are latest prices we all have seen on the evil-bay.

Still it's a great guitar, but i have never seen it sell for more than 1000$ or less.

Thanks you guys, I'm definitely going to keep her. She plays like a dream, and I'm glad she isn't valuable. . . more incentive to never sell her!

Re: JEM7RB Root Beer question

In my mind one of the coolest of JEMs.
Old school, big monkey grip.

I would love one, would buy one, would drink one...
