Please help..why won`t my JS100 sell???
Hey Guys, I joined this forum hoping to get some honest advice in regards to unfortunately having to sell my JS100. I know that it`s a beautiful guitar and it means a lot to me, especially now since Satch signed it during a meet and greet, but sadly i do have to part with it for financial reasons... I have had it listed for sale on other sites but I am completely puzzled as to why no one has shown any interest towards it...I`m just wanting to see what the thoughts and opinions are out there...It`s in amazing condition, 21years old, one owner only, is stock apart from the upgrading of the pickups and has Satriani`s signature scrawled across the top of the body. The signature had begun to rub off slightly…which is when i completely stopped playing it as i didn`t want to lose anymore of the signature.
I am wondering if the signature is the reason buyer`s are staying away??? The thing is the signature could easily be removed, but i`m not prepared to do that in case there is a collector out there...
There are no chips or cracks on the body or the neck
No belt-buckle scratches on the body
The headstock has light scratches(from replacing strings)
The neck is straight
The only complaint i ever had with the guitar was the Lo-Trs Trem. It has never stayed in-tune properly when using the whammy bar...needless to say i didn`t use the whammy bar and just played it like a fixed bridge and it was absolutely fine.
It is completely stock other than the original pickups being upgraded and replaced with Dimarzio`s.

thanks in advance,
