Hi just a simple question for our friends who live across the pond, how much is a regular JEM in the U.S?

Here in my country they start at 2400 euros/dollars(?), and needless to say these are amongst the most expensive guitars you can buy over here,

I have no idea but if they are cheaper in the U.S I would understand many posts. :wink:

2,400 Euros is roughly $3,360.
I believe list price is somewhere around $2,200, which means you should be able to find them for under $2,000....

In america you can get a white JEM for $2200. The 7vbk is $2100. I think a universe is either $1800 or $1900.

Indeed! That really is cheap-about £1100. They're about £1600 over here ($3100). Rip off Britain rears its ugly head again

In Stockholm, Sweden the white Jem7vH are listed as new for 4700 dollars.
But you can always go to the store and talk to them and get it for 4000 dollars.

The JEM555 I bought costed me 2205 dollars.

I Obviously can by a Jem7vh cheaper on e-bay and have it shipped to me...

Yes it angers me too..we in the U.K. are paying nearly double the price of a Jem in the states.

You're looking at about 4000 for a new vwh in australia. They'll usually knock 500 off easily to get the sale though.
