Trying to have this guitar evaluated to put up for sale

Title says it all, it's a 7VSBL '03 in player's condition. I'm not the original owner and it was acquired like that. It doesn't have any neck pocket crack whatsoever. I just want the experts to tell me how much I could get for it in $US or $CAN.

P.S. It seems I'm not able to resize my pictures, is there a good samaritan to whom I can send them so they can post it for me?

There are a ton of options for re-sizing pictures: GIMP, Paint.NET, et al.

If you're using Windows, download and install Paint.NET. Open the photos with it, and resize them easily in the Image => Resize menu item.

If you have them uploaded to a photo sharing site, that would be best. We can view the full size images from whatever site you use. I like Imageshack because it doesn't use "pop unders" like photobucket does.

Mine has a lot of scars done by the previous owner. Apparently its so bad that I have offered to trade it for lot less expensive Prestige but the dings were too much of a turn off.

Re: Trying to have this guitar evaluated to put up for sale

My Fave JEM. I bought one two weeks ago for $2500. It was FLAWLESS! AS NEW! In the case for the last 13 years. No joke. Still had plastic on some covers and zero fret wear, dings, nicks, scratches. No way you could tell that it didn't just come off the assembly line. I got extremely lucky. Been wanting this guitar for years,

Re: Trying to have this guitar evaluated to put up for sale

So based on these prices the one up for sale currently on ebay is not worth the asking price of $2,495?

I'm on the market for another Jem but dislike the ocean of white Jems.

I'm not sure on the American market for Jems but thats around 1600 here which in my opinion is a little high although it is a really nice condition.

Based on what I've seen others in similar condition go for in the past 6 months I'd say that's a bit high.

Edit: If you're in the market it looks like there's one in the classified's here for a great price.

Thanks for the reply. I was at the classifieds and missed it.
