I'm new here, this is my first post. I'm a proud owner of a Jem7VWH with the ebony fretboard.
Anyway, when I was a kid, before I could afford the cool stuff, I used to drool over the Starfield display at my local music store. Then when I actually started working at that music store a few years later, the Starfields were gone, BUT, one of the managers that had been there forever bought one, and used to bring it in to Jam on during our breaks and down time. I've always wanted one since then.
I recently came across a Starfield Cabriolet SJ (Japan model) in amazing condition, green (my favorite color) curled maple top with Duncan pups. The only downside is that the seller is asking close to $2000 for it, and I have seen American Altairs and custom shop guitars going for around $700.
I'm wondering what makes this guitar so special? Are they even WORTH that much? I've always wanted one, but I don't want to get fleeced in the process. Just wondering what the consensus of opinions would be around here.
