Seeking opinion about relative values of 77bfp vs. 777sk

Just wondering what people think about the relative value of a Jem 77bfp vs a Jem 777sk..I have a bfp and am thinking of maybe trading, but don't want to break my bank. Thanks dfor any input!

If you have to "break the bank" while trading a BFP for an SK, Don't do it. AFAIK they both hold around the same value in like condition.

Personally I would want to keep the BFP though..... I think that it will be more valuable in the distant future.

I don't know--there's just "something" about the original Jemsm I'd go with the SK, or an LNG.

Values have realy crashed. Do you guys think they will ever go back to high? I fear not.

Well you can look at this two ways, the way you are above, Hoping the prices rise again.
Or like me, who now can actuly afford to buy some of the items that were unreachable for me in the past.
I dont buy insturments as investments, I buy them to play.

Oh for sure, but the question of this thread was value.

Like with cars and I guess other second hand stuff its such a great time to be a buyer. these days while everyone is so skint.

It also depends on why people collect. For their "personal appreciation," or for resale value later on. That's why I said the LNG any day over the other.

LNG is obviously sexy, but we are all bias arent we.

I can't comment as to the values as I haven't been tracking numerically for a while, but there is more "buzz" on the internet about the neon guitars that there is about the BFP in recent months. Go back a few years and the BFP was the one to watch, it all goes in cycles.
