Should I buy.... Jem 7bsb?

Ok I have a possibility to buy a un-molested 1998 Burnt stained blue jem with the Jem case in pretty good shape. The stain rubbed off the back by the belt buckle and a bit on the neck from playing. All for $1000.00 What do you all think? What is the consensus on this model? Fair price?

I am comming from 2 RG770s one with a edge (dident like) and a lo-pro and a bridge EVO pup (did like) so i figured with the lo pro would be great! I just dont really have the $$ unless I can sell my US Fender.......... asap Thanks

I love my BSB and would say GO GET IT!!!
If you didn't like it I'm sure you could get your money back.
You really don't see the BSB's for sale alot

Well I think the IBZ resale is in the craper right now(imo)But I seen one sell a few months ago on the bay for right around $1100 or $1200 I think is what it was.I gave $950 for the one I have in 2005 but I really wanted one so maybe that was high.That was almost 3 years ago so I would say they have went up.It all comes down to how bad you want something as to how much you will pay for it.

I got more pics it is very worn, but I went and bought my old rg770 from a buddy. After 12 years he only played a few days broke the high e and it sat so she is minty fresh! 325.00 too so I am psyched! Oh it has a evo pup in it also

I'd go for it. I had my eyes set on a 7vwh until I played the 7bsb....probably the most underated jem imo.

Thats the one i had in mind when i posted about restaining it

btw, that one, being that cool blue would be simply AWESOME with abalone dots instead of the screwheads...
