Re: PRICE GUIDE: The Current Value Of Each Jem/UV
Well I can tell you that no UV has a palmrest. That was a feature unique to the '87 Jem 777's.
I don't follow UV's enough to know which are the most rare, but as a general rule I feel that GR's come up for sale the least frequently and the current UV777's are the most numerous. They are basically always available. The next most numerous would be a UV7BK. I feel like I could find an MKR basically whenever I want one as well.
Pricing is much harder to address, other than defining a range from cheapest (UV777BK) to most expensive (UVMC-RE). The prices within that range vary significantly over time. I've always felt that the only way to gauge market price for a guitar is to follow sales of that guitar over a period of time. This means being diligent about watching sales of guitars from various sources (this site, eBay, Craigslist, etc).
I won't give any prices, but here's my crack at two broadly defined ranges. I might be kind of off on these model numbers.
Availability of guitars for sale (most frequent to least frequent):
UV777PBK, UV7BK, UVMC-MKR, UV7PWH, UVMC-RE, UVMC-ATD, UV7GR
General prices (least expensive to most expensive):
UV777PBK, UV7BK, UV7PWH, UVMC-MKR, UV7GR, UVMC-ATD, UVMC-RE
