What is the Value of an original 90's UVMC?

I have an original UVMC that I am thinking of selling. I see the green ones on Ebay going supposedly being sold for 5000.00?!?!?! this seems crazy to me! What would a 90's UVMC with the original Ibanez hardcase be worth now a days? I have owned this guitar for about 20 years, and it is in very very good shape. not beat on at all.

$5000 for the Green UV is Crazy.
That's why no one has bought it.
For the last year it has been sitting on Ebay.

I call it, "Living on Ebay"!

Is your UV an ATD or MKR?
Is it Ugly or Nice?

Just because something is LISTED on eBay doesn't mean it is selling for that amount. That UVGR on eBay is definitely not worth $5000.

I turned down $5000 for my GR, because the chances of replacing a NOS GR are pretty slim!

Yeah but:

1. You're a dealer; people will pay a premium to deal with someone they know is reliable and a trustworthy seller.

2. NoS.

The GR is the rarest of them all, there's 4 MC's for every GR. But there may only be 100 really sweet MC's, and a hundred more that a collector would buy. A great MC is over $5k and a mediocre in average condition might not sell for half that. It's all about how nice it is.

Serial #918947 made in Japan. I am the original owner, it is nearly mint because it has been played and loved by my me for 22 years. no cracks in the neck joint, no chips in the paint, no dings or damage, just the regular dirty on the neck and the fretboard. Normal wear off spots on the neck plate and bridge. The case has tour wear on it from my time playing guitar in Nevermore. Links to drop box for pix upon request, my Jemsite emails have been going to spam sorry for the delay in replay to any emails!

Damn....nice to have you here Curran!! Another pro player here on Jemsite........ I hope you'll stick around after selling your MC....

FWIW..... He HAS one of the good ATD's. Nice dark chaotic swirl. If you can post better pics- we could narrow down a possible value.

Awesome looking guitar; that swirl looks like it's one of the REAL nice ones. Cool to see it in the hands of a pro too, thanks for the link.
