Is this a fair asking price for a JPM100-P1???
Well, I'm not sure which one you are thinking of....but yes, the one I was pondering, after looking at many pics of it, I noticed there was very little flame from what I could see...that was another reason I decided against it.
I'm already having a hard enough time committing myself to plopping down $1300+ for what is still a Japanese Bolt-On neck guitar (although I have several Ibanez guitars, including a Jem7FP and a wacky, but very cool 540P, I've never paid anywhere near this much for one). *And although I've never even played an Ibanez JPM, everyone I've talked to said if I am a true "Ibanez" fan, I should have one in my collection because they were a unique model and feel and sound quite a bit different than most other Ibanez "shredder" guitars.
