Re: what's a Jem 7 worth?

Hey Mick,

That's about what they used to go for when I lived there.

With the exchange rate up around 93c at the moment it makes that price a little high.

Not sure how much it is to import one from the US, Rich at Ibanezrules.com would have more insight.

But it might be worth checking out while the exchange rate is so good.

Cheers,
Shane

it retails for about 2,500 USD but shop around youll be able to get a better price than that. is the hard tail feature what makes you want one?

Jems vary in resale value due to a number of factors. Which Jem are talking about? If you don't know the model, just describe what it looks like.

Re: what's a Jem 7 worth?

According to Australis Music, the Australian Ibanez importer, The list price for both the Jem7V and the Jem77V is $6295AUD, so i'd say that $3500 is looking pretty good.

Just to clarify, we are talking new here, right?

Rock on!
