trading my jem7vwh for gibson ace frehley les paul - is that

Hi,

I wanted to know if trading my mint 2000 Jem 7VWH in mint condition for a mint 1997 Gibson Ace Frehley Les Paul is a good idea?

I don't *know how much more a Les Paul is worth than a jem but i think it is more than a grand. and if i ever didnt like the trade, since its worth more, i could always get my jem back, right?

So do you think its a good trade? Please give all opinions, i especially need opinions from Jem bigtime buyers/sellers/retailers/business guys, (like Rich)

THANKS ALOT

I don't know what Frehly's actually sell for but they're all offered in the $3000 range, so even a despiration sale would get you a brand new 7v PLUS a DBK, if you so desired. (I guess)

yes the retail value is more for the Ace F model , its about 3000 , however not many people buy it as AF isnt exactly popular these days and 3000 its not somthing anyone can buy.....so id only trade if you want the AF LP to play

Ace isn't popular? *And Steve is??? *Don't get me wrong, I worship Steve & all but lets face it, who would get recognized on the streets first?

No Contest

Anyway, it's a great trade in your favor if it's in good condition. *I can't see this guitar being a player though...

Trade for the Les Paul if its in the condition you say. *There are 50x as many VWH's out there and you can always get your hands on one later. *

This should be a no-brainer considering the value of the Les Paul. *Take the deal, sell the Paul, then go buy another VWH or 3.

guitars are only worth what the public will pay for it, not a hteoretical worth...I don't know what Les Pauls are going for on the used market...if you can get good $$ for it, then go for it, if you can't then don't

(I have noticed a slight slowdown lately in the used guitar market, seems to be somewhat of a buyers market with prices going down slightly----anyone else noticed that?)

I'd do it.

You can always get another VWH from Rich :biggrin:

I'd love to have a AF LP and a Tony Iommi SG.

Someone/anyone can correct me, but isn't the AF Paul made by Epiphone?

Gibson released one as did Epi. *Make sure you're talking true Gibson here. *If not, don't trade.
