Hi I'm hoping I might get some impartial advice on my jem 77 pmc. I'm looking to get the guitar insured or potential sell but have zero idea what it's worth. Never really considered this before it's always just been my guitar. House renovations may make the choice for me. Its in reasonable condition a few dings over the years and im based in the UK. Many thanks Iggy

Hi Iggy,

I have my GMCs insured as named items on my house insurance. Having had expensive guitars stolen before I wholeheartedly recommend it!

If you want to sell I think anything from £3000 (poor swirl, lots of fade, bad condition) woudl be a fair price. One was just on ebay for £7000 which seemed a bit steep to me, but I watched the auctionwith great interest. PM me some pics if you're interested in selling, I might be the first to ask, but with only 271 even made, I doubt i'll be the last!

Hi Jono - Yep I had the same experience recently hence thinking about insurance mind you they took my car rather than the guitars but still..gutted.

Thanks for the info I had a "feeling" it was in that range but it's good to have some one confirm this.

I'll PM you a link to some photos ...once I work out how to do that!!?

I think you’re in the US$3,500 to $5,000 range for these today. How nice the swirl looks and condition are what drive the price as the other poster mentioned. Though a case queen in mint condition I suspect would go for more than 5K in an auction. These are nicer in person too. An unfaded one (keep these out of UV!!) are really nice. I don’t know why but the photos never do these justice plus no rosewood so a MUCH easier ship internationally. One day I’ll get a group shot of what I have and post it. I think it’s documented that at least three of these have been destroyed and countless others have been beat to hell so that 271 number I’m sure is lower now as far as nice PMC’s (and GMC’s for that matter) that remain in the wild.

Thats a good point I wonder how many are actually still around. Would be interesting to build out a database of registered 77s
