Ridiculous SK price?

Why is this going for so much?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ibanez-Jem-7...item3cd4596a8c

I actually passed on it locally a month ago because I cant really play guitar right now, but..I thought this would be worth like 1700 MAX.

Re: Ridiculous SK price?

Yeah, it's pretty crazy.

I've been talking some with the seller. IT's actually an 87, which most probably could tell from the volume knob, and part of the serial number was shown. Once he told me the serial number was 871237, then that confirmed it. I don't think anyone will complain that they got a 87 over an 88.

If you own one of these, you love seeing this price. SK's are so rare right now, I think this was just brought out at the right time.

I really wanted one, but not ready to pay that for it.

To be fair, that price is just a little over what a Canadian would pay total after taxes and shipping from a US seller.

If a US seller bought that they will pay over $3000 total after tax & shipping. Pretty crazy!

Personally I'd like to see the board cleaner than that, but the condition of the paint and pickups alone makes it worth what it's going for.

Re: Ridiculous SK price?

I agree, that thing is basura to me, I would have assumed around $1,700 top due to the board condition and the big chip that was repaired.

SK's are rarely seen it seems....desperate times, or perhaps it will relist as non payer
