Talking What is goin on with this??

I was just looking at evilb*y and noticed several white Jem 7V's going for insane prices, one used one more then double its new retail price. What the heck are they thinking? I would feel like a thief if I sold one for that kind of price. Opinions?

Is there any such thing as a white 77? Are you talking about 7V's?

That dude's wife probably wants him to sell it and has no clue what it's worth, so he puts up an Ebay listing with a crazy number that gets no bids and buddy gets to keep his guitar!

My guitarist just did the same thing on Craigslist a few weeks ago with a few old BC Rich's....got his girlfriend off his back for a couple months.

Well, they're splitting up and he's moving out....so clearly, Rich had the best time saving advice!

Wrong. The seller thinks his guitar is worth that much because it's signed.

Or he saw a Jem EVO for that price somewhere without knowing that Ibanez did come up with a relic'd version of EVO some time ago.
