Re: 13K for a Chrome Boy !

But apart from this one with a butchered top horn, which at 13k, hasn't sold yet, when was the last time you remember one coming up for sale?

I guess on original Silver Surfer finish guitars, it has to be a seller's market, unless you've decided to drill a few random holes in it just for fun?

Wife: You have to sell some of you guitars.
Husband: I have them listed on eBay. People are looking but nobody is buying.
Wife: Well once you sell those guitars we will have money to visit my mother.

With regards to the comment about top horn,it's a tiny piece of the decal that is missing with no damage to the headstock

Re: 13K for a Chrome Boy !

I think 90% of the JS's on eBay are overpriced..... pretty much everyone that is coming 'from Japan' is about $1500 above retail.... There's a JS1CR30 which is $3000 more than I paid for mine, a PRM for over $11,000US.... is there any wonder these sit on eBay for months if not years without selling?

That JS2 has been popping up on and off for months.... anyone want a brand new JS20th there's one sitting here at Ibanez NZ that they haven't been able to sell for 10 years :/. They also have a full set of 3 Universe 30th swirls that won't move either.....

What is the opinion of the current value of my JSs2 chromeboy? I'm really lost as to what its current value is so i can sell it.

Re: 13K for a Chrome Boy !

5K max IMHO

But it all depends on how much the buyer really wants to pay for it!

Re: 13K for a Chrome Boy !

Condition is important, if it’s minty fresh, that’ll be worth a lot more than one with flaking chrome and extra strap button holes...

I’d personally say that it’s got to be worth more than a black dog, but these days probably less than a JS 3, 4 or 5... whatever that means

The holes and marks referred to are just where a small piece of chrome decal is missing

the one that was on eBay looks, to me from the photos, like someone tried to reposition the strap button on the top horn, twice, and covered up the damage with clear tape. If that's right, it massively devalues the instrument. If that's not right, what are those holes and how did they get there.

the damage to the decal on the headstock would also be a problem for me on a guitar with that asking price. I'm not sure what I'd pay for that one, but it wouldn't even be close to the 13K asking price.
