FGM100..finally mine,for now..value?

Hallo to all...
I have finally got the gambale ibanez signature model, from 1991..FGM100DY!
It is amazing..i had rg550ex..and this one is, although it is unbeliavable, so much more easier to play..i don't know how..but simply is!
It has lo pro edge..Dimarzio Dual Sound in the bridge, IBZ US F1 in the neck..and a jackson single in a middle (previous owner wanted softer single coil than stock hs3..)..
And it has a AANJ -unbeliavable for that years!
It i in great great condition..no dings or scratches..maybe a tiny crack arround neck joint..but nothing that affects playability...
and so on and so on..i am amazed!
But..the things are never simple...
Although this is a really really excellent guitar..an US steinberger was always my dream..but i never had chance to get one..and of course..since i am so lucky, now..when i invested all my money and sold other guitars to buy FGM, there is one..
So..i don.t know what to do..i am maybe thinking to sell this FGM..i need to follow my dream..since I have always felt more of a headless..
But i am still not putting it on sale..cause that would be maybe stupid..i am just checking arround..for now..
But i am also aware that i can afford only one guitar...so we'll see..
Would anyone from this site be so kind to tell me what would be the value of a FGM i have..and is there maybe someone interested in it..?
The thing that might be a problem is that i am from Serbia (ex Yugoslavia)..but..shipping services are good nowadays, so hopefolly we could manage something..
Thank you very much!

ps: I forgot to mention that it has integrated 2 switches for spliting humbackers, too..

If I were you I wouldn't sell it, that is a great guitar and you will be hard pressed to find another one, specially living in Serbia, personally I don't find Steinbergers impressive, they play ok but not having the headstock makes me nervous,
they are not my cup of tea but that's just my opinion, so I would suggest that before you do anything play the steinberger (If you haven't played one already)
and compare both guitar's playability, sound and looks, this way you can make a better decision as to what axe you'd really like to own.

Re: FGM100..finally mine,for now..value?

Olie, thank you for your reply..
I have had a steinberger spirit about 6 months ago..the broom-like one,,it was actually very very playable..although cheap...but i just liked the smoothness of the lo pro edge on my rg550 much more..so i sold it..
but my dream to own a high end steinberger remained..and now i maybe have a chance to get one..but this FGM is really awesome, so i am aware of the risk..I will try that stein, for sure, before doing anything that i could possibly regret..
Thank you very very much for the interest..
Can you tell me what would be th value of the FGM i own..?
Thank you..!

Re: FGM100..finally mine,for now..value?

Steinbergers are pretty cool guitars, especially the one with the Strat-type body that TJ Helmerich and Allan Holdsworth play, but I'd keep hold of the FGM for sure. If it has the colour-matched headstock and matching inlays, that's even better. Congrats on your purchase!

Re: FGM100..finally mine,for now..value?

Thank you guys!
And yes..i am hoping to buy the strat-bodied one steiny..hopefolly...
It would be nice..and i would keep this FGM for sure..but i simpljy don't have enough money to have 2 guitars..at least not 2 good ones..sad but true..i am a student..and it is Serbia..so..probably, if i got a fair price..FGM will get to go...
So, does ANYONE has any idea about the price of a FGM..???

No idea. How aboiut some pics? Obviously if the guitar is in good shape it's worth more.

"..since I have always felt more of a headless.."

Anybody else think that sounded a little funny
