Value of JEM Jr

I recently bought what I only know to be called a JEM Jr, it's white has the 'normal' fret inlay(dots) and has a white pickguard, the Steve Vai handle but I want to know whether I got a good deal and how much it's basically worth, I was having trouble finding it on the net I think I may have the name wrong but that's what the signiture at the top says.

If anyone could give me any information about it, it would be of great help!

All dots? Sounds like a 333 to me.

Where did you buy it? (internet or store?) (city / country?)
Was it new or used?

How can it be this hard to find out about the "333"?
Someone (Ibanez...?) is really going out of their way to make sure that information and pictures are virtually impossible to find.
This is the Loch Ness monster of the guitar world:
Everybody has heard about it, but no one has ACTUALLY seen it!

Why does everybody forget there's a "sticky" thread with a link to the 333

Well I think it's a bargain as the site has it at HK$720 = $92.

That's less than RG170. Is that possible or did I make a mistake?

My mistake - It's Singapoure $720 = $405.

Yeah, im the unlucky blighter!! The stores a 10 min shuttle bus ride from my flat, so i often go there after schools, or when i go out. The guitar dude there recognizes me everytime, after i put him through all this crap by ordering pickups in australianized english!!

Its actually a PGM3, not a PGM10. Still makes good firewood material though!

As in mentioned in the otehr post, they have the JEM 333 going at HK$3600, which is US$385. PGM 3 goes at US$350. Same price i got my RG 470 for.

Tom Lee music is probably the best (and only) place to get ibanezes guitars in Hong Kong, thanks to an inexistent 2nd hand market, (well, not one taht im aware of anyway!) In my opinion, they are notoriously bad at setting up guitars, bridge angle was totally wrong, action too high, etc.

lol, im turning into a pgm 3 and JEM 333 expert!

by the way, i havnt actually seen a ridiculously cheap JS before; i dont think they actually exist. However, i wouldnt be at all surprised if i saw one, and my friend claims hes seen a JS going in the US$300-400 price range.

Hmm.. US $350? sounds like about 220 in england. No doubt our tax hungry govornment will boost it up to 500! Same price as a Rg 520. dearie me...!
