Pawn Shop Jem 7DBK

I saw a near mint Jem 7DBK with OHSC at a local pawn shop. OTD price with discount and tax was $695. Sounds great, no fretwear whatsoever, and very well kept. Everything is original except the volume and tone knobs (easy fix). Is this a good price?

Dude, jump on it it FAST!!!! If you wanted to resale it, you could make at least a couple hundred bucks, or keep it and play it forever. Great price.

Re: Pawn Shop Jem 7DBK

meh, they usually trade a grand or a little less in good shape.

Which means...it's still a GREAT deal! I'd hit it without hesitation.

DBKs usually go the cheapest, but still or a a few hundred more than that.

Hope it's not a Chibanez. Any way you can snag a pic?

Re: Pawn Shop Jem 7DBK

I don't think I've seen a Chibanez DBK...I go on iOffer every so often to see if there's any new fakes I should be watching out for, LOL...so you're probably safe there.

Yeah, I've been definitely watching the DBK market here and on the bay...I aim to buy one soon! I have a couple things to sell first...

Run. Do not walk. Post pics when you've got it.
DBK = Budget DNA (neck, pups), with HAM inspired looks.

Just make sure that it's real, although I have yet to see a fake DBK.

Go in there and buy that thing right now. That is a throw down deal and the Pawn Store probably doens't know what they have. So go and make that guitar yours.

Or they got it for $150.00 and want to make that cash back with a good deal in this economy...

Either way it's a win-win!
