What would be a good price for one of these? I'm looking at one that's for sale over here that seems to be in good shape. It's a cool looking guitar and it seems they're quite rare, but I still don't really want to overpay for it if I end up pulling the trigger.
I guess I'd have to factor in changing the trem if I end up buying it too, since I've never heard anything good about the JT-6.
Prices on these have gone up in the last five years or so. In the USA, you'd expect to pay at least $600-700 now, maybe more for one in good shape. I have no idea how much one in Europe would go for.
In my opinion, the only thing that makes these really special is that they have genuine Honduran mahogany bodies, which you couldn't do at any price now. The JT-6 is a major drawback. They really suck, and the conversion studs that Frets on the Net used to make are no longer available. An OFR will fit on the existing studs, but its range of motion may be somewhat limited.
