Re: Who bought the JS5 and how much did it cost?
How rare are they? How many of them are around? How much would a donnie bring in? A Rainbow?
Any idea whta happened to the snake replica? There was also another interesting guitar, the Samick/Valley arts that Blues Saraceno used on Plaid and the instructional video. Anyone saw that one? how much did it bring in? That is one guitar I would love to own.
Im glad that a fellow jemsiter who really wanted got it. I wasnt cheap... but I guess he either has a lot of money, or he really really wanted it (and there doesnt seem too many to look around). So, congrats!
I wonder if there are a few JS3, 4 and 5 outside the US, japan and europe.... anyone lucky enough to find one will probably get it very cheap. Outside the US and Europe there isnt an Ibanez "collectors" market.
In Argentina I bought an almost mint UV77MC for 1000, a PMC was in a store for a couple of months before the sold it for 1500 (Im missed that one). Another very good UV77MC was sold for 1500. Keep in mind that a used RG570 goes for around 600 in Argentina, and a used 7VWH would ost around 1500-2000 (because guitars are much more expensive than in the US).Here in Mexico, I heard there was a guy who wanted to trade a GMC in excellent condition for a UV777BK. These are just a few examples.
Back to topic.... so, who many JS3, JS4 and JS5 are around? How much would a JS3 or JS4 bring in? Anyone in the forum got the snake replica or the Blues Saraceno guitar?
