Question Starfield Cabriolet (Japan) Value??

Hello all,

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.

Thanks...

~Six

2k is too much, in my opinion.

They are rare, and for all I know there might be buyers who think 2k is a decent price. 2k USD over here is not that much for a guitar.

Maybe mr Magnus catch this thread, he is (was?) a fan of the Starfield guitars, and would probably know more about their current value.

Thanks Euphor. I agree, I feel it's too much as well. Hopefully Magnus will see this and offer his opinion.

You might be able to reach him through his website. Not seen him around here lately. http://magnusolsson.com/ Worth a shot. He's a nice guy, so he might be able to help.
