Is it worth waiting?

I may have a chance of getting my hands on DNA soon but should I wait and save my money to see what the new Jem will be like.

I will tell you if you have the chance to get a DNA, absolutely do NOT hesitate. It will be the nicest feeling (if properly set up), best sounding Jem you have ever played. I promise If not, you will absolutely get your money back in no time if you flip it.

I'm not one for getting excited on DNA's,10ths and 20ths,but even I know that the DNA's are abit special and unless they're going to do a LNG reissue I'd go for the dna

DNA has a lot of mojo. Hard to beat any authentic ATD swirled guitar. I'd go for the DNA rather than waiting.

And besides, if you get the DNA now, then decide you don't like it and want the new one, you'll probably sell it for more than if you left the money in the bank.

Not even probably, certainly more like.

I don't suppose you would let the rest of us know where this DNA is to be had?

The DNA is so freaking cool.

Prices are always going up, but with Durham law graduates starting on £55,000-£70,000pa, I've already got one on my hitlist

Don't even think about it ... get the DNA. You'll be sorry if you don't. And if something that great comes along later, you can always sell the DNA.

The responses in this thread should tell you that, if you ever regretted the DNA, it would take you all of 5 second to pawn it off on someone for (probably) more than you paid for it. You have no reason not to buy it.
