J- Custom Gold1

I have a J-Custom Gold 1 that I've owned for about 10 years. I've heard that they're quite rare and collectable. Does anybody know what they're worth to sell?

Re: J- Custom Gold1

I took some photos today. Mine has a gold mirror pick-guard that I've not seen on any others, Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to put pictures here, neither can I paste a link. Is there any other way to show the photos?

That seems very cheap. It's less than what I paid in 2004. Was it broken?

That was a Gold-2 with a bit of damage to it. The Gold 1's very rarely come up for sale on the open market.

Pm me the link to your pics and I'll post them. I've seen that one with the
scratchplate before.

Shortly after I bought it, I posted a picture on our UK forum, Licklibrary. You'd see it if you did a Google search for pictures of a Gold 1. It seems that Licklibrary is more or less defunct now and all their users pictures are gone, so the photos don't show anymore.

I'll send you the photos, thanks.

That does not fit the trem rout like a factory guard, and it's definitely not put on at the factory as the pickups are direct mount.

It's even better when you have it in front of you. It looks just like the body is made out of solid gold. Photos just don't do it justice.

It was the "Gold" with the birds. And yes it did have the head-stock gold finish flaking off if memory serves correct.

I like yours though...but why the pickguard? was there some pick marks on the body?

Correct. Yeah had a bit of cosmetic damage to the headstock. I was eyeing that one. Thailand it was I think. That's were a few of the Gold models were. Ibanez rep beat me to a Gold-1 in Thailand a few years back.
