Original Jem/Universe necks.

I need a little help from you guys.

I have had a 2 original Ibanez necks laying around for many years, plan was to maybe do something with them one day or use them if something breaks.
But I have sort of realized that it will never happen, they will be laying there until someone clears out my estate :-)
I thought it maybe something other people would like to have, or maybe not, I just don't know. But have no idea of what stuff like that sell for, I mean, do people pay 10 dollar or 500 dollar for them?

The necks are original, in next to never used, Ibanez necks.
One JEM7V (stamped 2001 on the neck heal, but 2002 on the serial number).
Ebony fret board. No visual fret wear.

One Universe (I think the stamp on the neck heal says UV777, very hard to read) with disappearing pyramid inlays, rosewood. No visual fret wear.
Original Gotoh tuners.

If want to sell these, what should I ask for it? A in between price, not silly cheap and not expensive. I have no interest in stuff like Ebay (have never even visited ebay).
In the country where do you never see Ibanez necks for sale, so I have noting to compare too.

This is NOT an auction, is ask for your help.

Re: Original Jem/Universe necks.

An original UV neck is very hard to find so it should be worth a tidy sum and an original Jem neck aint cheap either.
I'm sure Rich will chime in here with values.
I wouldn't accept any offers until you find the real value.

Thanks for your answer!
I hope Rich will give me some advice here then.

They will be sold here and on a Swedish forum I visit.
Ebay are not an option for me.

Re: Original Jem/Universe necks.

List prices on new necks have gone up with the guitar prices. List on a VWH neck is probably closer to $2000 now. I had to buy a RG3570 neck last year and list on it was $1360. Not that any of that matter to what you can actually sell it for.

Condition is key of course, top dollar they'd have to be MINT with good relief profile. And speed of sale always dependent on pricing. The JEM neck is 56mm which is tougher to get, and ebony. Current new rosewood neck would be in the $700-900 range. The UV isn't model specific with the black head and probably $500-$750.

FWIW- I sold my '98 UV777 neck here on Jemsite for $600. The neck was in excellent condition. I sold it almost 3 years ago.........

Re: Original Jem/Universe necks.

Three different ebony board Jems have sold recently in the $1000-1250 range. A really nice '98 was listed twice at $1399 and $1350 and finally sold when he dropped the price to $1250.

One with some chips sold for $1150 and then a pretty nice '98 got only a single bid at $1000.

So considering what an entire guitar with case is going for, I'm not sure what you'd be able to get for just a neck.

UV777's sold recently have a bigger spread in values but a pretty nice '97 went for around $900 and there are others not moving at $1200.

Re: Original Jem/Universe necks.

I pad $250 of a UV777 neck just like the one you have a few months ago in mint shape.
It had no hardware on it.

Re: Original Jem/Universe necks.

Thanks for all your answers guys! Much appreciated.

It is hard if you have no idea, you don't want to "not sell it" by being silly expensive but not be stupid to yourself either. I thought putting them up for 100 US dollar, but now I think I can get a little more. Condition on the necks are very good.

I putt up a sale tread and try 500 for each.

Thanks guys!

cheers

Re: Original Jem/Universe necks.

I think you could get $500 for the Jem neck but I don't think you'll see that for the Universe neck. I recently got an MIJ PGM neck for $150.

Re: Original Jem/Universe necks.

With the strong us dollar you won't get much SEK.
For you it's better posting an askingprice in SEK.
