Price on a Root Beer JEM?

There is a root beer JEM locally for sale--the one with the big handle and brown stain in excellent shape. *What's a fair price without case?

Jem prices do seem to be going up across the board tho'...

I blame eBay... Or Sadam Hussein, I can't remember which. I always get those two mixed up

Hey Greg,

I traded out an RB in the Dallas area. *I wonder if it was mine???? *I traded it for an LNG about 3 1/2 years ago.

Depending on quality, I'd say a RB would go from about $600 - $1000. *The lower being worn, the higher being near mint.

Gabe-
This one's in the North Dallas store in North Central Exp. (I-75), and is in excellent condition, fairly dark stain. *I'd been in this store before in the past few months and didn't notice it...and come to think of it, I don't even think this store is even that old. *But I suppose it could be yours...maybe traded back in or shifted from store to store?

I'm not a huge JEM fan but I guess hanging around here is rubbing off on me. * The RB is kind of cool. *Something like a BSB in natural, or a DBK in plain black with no texture might work. *We'll see about that new purple one.

I sold one about 3 months ago for $650 w/non original HSC. *It was in pretty good shape, but not perfect. *Frets needed some work, but otherwise it played well, and the new owner was extremely happy with the purchase, so that is all that really matters.

I paid 650 for the one that I had. It was pretty mint. I traded it though, and miss it every day...
