Re: Jems and the Economy!
I've been watching the Bay of E for months with this in mind, hoping that that some bargains might show up. 7VW's are so common that I'm surprised that they bring the $1,500-$1,800 prices people are always asking. FP's seem a little soft but not too bad, two PMC's recently sold pretty strong for over $4,000. The others I watch are DNA's and BFP's neither of which I've seen there in ages aside from a thrashed BFP, understandably with no takers at $1,499. I just paid a very strong price for a hard to find JS1.
The right guitar should always bring a strong price in good times or bad but common is just that. No need to chase something when you can find ten others at any given time. You did just fine on yours but in my opinion that's about what they should be selling for in the first place. Congrats on the purchase!
