Re: Do Ibanez guitars not accrue vintage value?
You will find that certain Ibanez guitars appreciate in value like fenders and Gibsons -
All original Jem LNG models (777 total)
All UVMC 7-strings (ATD's are worth more than the Japanese MKR's)
All Jem PMC's, GMC's (Purple.Green Multicolors)
All Jem DNA's
Each year brings a higher market value for these guitars and there are more....best to go do some research on Rich Harris's site- Ibanez Rules for current market values. Rich is probably best qualified dude you could find on this topic. In the past year we've seen UVMC's jump substantially in dollars sold - about 25% - I know because I bought one of Rich's and gladly paid the price - I know I can't lose on it.
These models have shown good increases in value and will command higher values soon:
Jem SK/VSK's (pink)
Jem VDY's (yellow vine)
Jem 10th, 90th
Jem 20th (clear)
From an investment standpoint, these guitars are poised to offer a strong return if the popularity continues - and I see no reason for that to happen in the near-term, so get out your checkbook and invest in your own future.
