Mid 90's JS1000tb Question

Hey folks. I am new here (did not know that this site even existed until today). Somebody over at The Gear Page told me about this site.

I have a JS1000 in trans blue that I bought in NYC back in 94 I believe. I have never seen another of the same color until searching through this site.

Anyway, the guitar is 100 original and in amazing shape, but does have a ding on the front. I have been thinking about selling it, but not sure. How much is something like this going for these days? Is it too rare to sell???




Serial# F3459xx

Thanks!

Guess you could get around 1000-1100 dollars for it if you find the right buyer. Looks great.

Thanks. I have not played it for over a year. I really like it, but GAS has got me and I am looking to try something else. Are these really that rare?

They were only made in 1994 so compared to other js1000 they are rare.

Looks like the fret board needs cleaning and oiling.

Yes you are correct moebius, the fret board does need a cleaning.

So anybody know how much these sold for when they were new? I really do not remember how much this thing cost. Do you folks think that it is rare enough that I would be a fool to sell it? Am I going to find out one day that this is worth 2,3,4 times what it is now?

Thanks

Re: Mid 90's JS1000tb Question

I could be wrong about this, but although the BSB (burnt stained blue) only appeared in the US catalog in 94, I thought they were available over quite a few years in Europe(?) It seems like most of the ones that have been for sale here were from the UK or other EU countries. And I believe Rich has had a number for sale over the years -- please correct me if I'm wrong. So although they are relatively uncommon compared to the BP or white JS1000, I don't believe they are exactly rare. Regardless, that's a very cool looking guitar you have there!

Re: Mid 90's JS1000tb Question

There was the TB [transparent blue] in the US for that year, IIRC.

The BTB [burnt transparent blue] offered in Asia and Europe over the years, has never been offered in the U.S. AFAIK. Except for the handful that Rich has been able to get, once in a blue moon. [no pun intended]

Re: Mid 90's JS1000tb Question

I opened a post exactly the same as this a while ago. This doesnt look like my Transparent Blue JS1000 (from 1993/94) because of the black part on the top, it made me think that it was a Burnt Transparent Blue one. Obviously you know better than me because its your guitar lol
Either way, I think you would be silly to sell it now. Wait a few years and keep it safe so it doesnt pick any more dings and you will be able to sell it easily for qutie a bit of money
