oh god....plz ur opinions

ok heres the deal theres a local music store that carries a jem7dbk and i sent an e-mail asking if they trade and stuff and they said yeah so i called b4 to get the price and they tell me 1,699$ and im like whoa!? thats alot for a older styled jem so i tell em how would you guys like a trade and i'll pay out the rest they're like "what do you got??" and im like a Ibanez rg 1527 I'll gladly pay the rest....they're like "no we have too many 7 strings" and im like......damn! so anyway after that i head in there.....i dont see ONE!!!!!! 7 string not one so i go to the guy and im like "uh sir you guys told me u dont trade just now but i reviced an e-mail syaing u do" and they're like "uh excuse me?" and so i show em and they're like pondering who sent it then some other comes in and tells me "oh we trade but only for like rare guitars and such" and then the other guy goes "well we dont really know much about jems" and im like "well i could rerfer you to a site that shows u everything about the jem" and he's all "well its brand new" and im like uh no "no those guitars are from 99-04" so the guy replies "we got it NEW last year" so i told em "no u didnt....its a 04'" well after much haggling and arguing they're like "well bring ur guitar in and we'll see cause we called ibanez and all we can go is 1,099$" and now im pissed cause theese guys are bullsh|ting me and such and i need someone to help me out here so i can make some points and persaude them into selling it cheaper

Re: oh god....plz ur opinions

I think $1100 is a good deal on a brand new 7dbk

JEM7DBK - Textured Black
Ibanez Dealer List Price
$1,729.99 list price (price rise 7/1/2004)

Also, I don't see why it's not possible that they could have gotten it new last year. You can still get new 2005 models and it's 2006. Calm down man

The price does sound right!

But they are giving you a lot of a run around. Hopefully it all works out in the end.

Well, they'll trade, but if they don't think they will be able to sell your 1570 because they don't find any demand for 7 strings, it's not really a very tempting trade for the shop - a guitar that sits on their wall for twelve months chewing up their line of credit doesn't do their business any good - you've got to see their angle as well. Maybe you should put a deposit on the 7DBK and sell your 1570 on Jemsite or that.... other.....place..........

Good luck,

Re: oh god....plz ur opinions

If they don't seem to have their act together, you don't trust them or don't like their price then maybe you should just look to buy one somewhere else.

Re: oh god....plz ur opinions

Hmmmm, first thing you should probably do is take a deep breathe and relax. From your posts I get the feeling you are like a caffined-up hummingbird with ADD. If the store does't want your 7 string they won't take it. There's a good chance 1 is too many at most stores if it's been sitting there for a year and no one looked at it why would they want another. Jems aren;t going anywhere man if you don't get one today they will still be available for years and years. In a previous post you said you wanted an Ebony board, which the DBK and 555 don't have, there's no point in settling for something if it's not what you are really after.

Re: oh god....plz ur opinions

Sell the 7-string, sell the Ipod, see what you have and then wait for a deal to come up for a beat up older Jem7VWH. In the mean time you can be saving!

Re: oh god....plz ur opinions

Uh, when the guy told me he wouldn't trade I was like, "no way", and he was like "way". So I was like "someone from your store emailed me saying you would", and he was like, "no way", and I was like "way".
