Need advice on price - ordering now.

Hey all,

I've been ringing around (Sydney, Australia) getting prices on a Jem7VWH. Basically, I am tired of waiting for that "new" jem.'s the go. Everyone is giving me the rec. retail price of a VWH here, which is AUS$4,895 with the M100C included.

In US dollars that's about $2,545.

The best price I've gotten so far is AUS$4,500 (US$2,340).

What do you guys in the States think of this price? Rich? Glen?

What should I shoot for in price? *(remembering I'm buying this thing brand new, and I've got to wait for the next friggin shipment to come in, which is early to mid august, i.e. most probably september).

please help.

Ouch, big dollars, write me if you want to save a stack of those greenbacks! Shipped in a week :biggrin: If playing and buying in person is a priority, just buy the best guitar and bite the price bullet.

I've been quoted A$3800 for a brand new 7V in Melbourne and just under A$3700 for a 77FP.

Good luck, mate!

I see 7VWH's tagged at $1599 without case at Guitar Center all the time. A great street price is about $1550 with case, plus tax of course.

Re: Need advice on price - ordering now.

If you want the cheapest price import from either the US or Japan.

If want new and don't want to import, call the Ibanez Centre in Adelaide, ask for Andrew and tell him that that DNA Pommy Tim sent you!!!LOL

If you want a second hand Jem, make friends with me - I'm up in the Hunter.

Either way if you need any advice, drop me a line

Re: Need advice on price - ordering now.

every shop in western au will do a jem 7v at 4000 au $$ i know as that is what they all quoted me for mine when i was looking i did have to play them all off against each other . i was in the end lucky and got my one for 3500 but that was a decent saving. If you shop around then you should find about the 4000 mark for one im guessing.

mc100,, is this the case? they will as far as i know over here come with the case? i may be wrong before anyone jumps on me.
