Why would I pay over $1070us for a Mexican jazzmaster? What changed with their American Jazzmasters to make the price skyrocket to $1899 from an already absurd $1499? This is precisely why I stopped buying Gibson stuff. And the guitar case... $200? REALLY? Holy s--t!
I bought a Japanese JM 5 years ago for $399. What gives? The economy isn't to blame for all of this. Also, 5 years ago, the American Jazzmasters were $1000us.
