Value of Vai autographed 87 Jem777SK?
I've lurked here from time to time, and just joined. I hope it's not bad form to ask for valuation help on my first post, but I'm trying to finish up insurance values for the unusual items.
I have a Jem 777 shocking pink, serial 87153 in very good condition, with the exception of a ding on the bottom from when my strap broke...2 days after I received it! I bought it in 1994 for $850, from Thoroughbred Music. The strap, BTW, was one the Ibanez cotton multicolored swirl straps. The strap broke right where it attached to the leather...bah...
Anyway, I got Steve to sign it for me after a concert in Wichita KS. He signed it in a perfect location, because I was worried that it would wear from my arm, but it turns out my arm never quite gets there. I didn't ever bother wth clearcoating over it, and I play it constantly.
Pickups have been updated to evolutions, but I still have the orginal pink paf pros.
Can anyone help me assign a value to it?
