Well, I traded for this guitar tonight and I have to say I'm very pleased. It does need some minor adjustments however it is beautiful and plays very well!

I cannot find another example online anywhere. Does anyone have an idea of worth or original retail pricing? What is the difference also between this Elvis signature series and a normal AVRI Jazzmaster? Was this a limited production model?

Thanks for your replies, I'm going to jam!:dude:

Traded an American Standard Strat in Sienna sunburst plus some cash. Both of the guitars were like new with case candy.

The JM has the original strings on it, flatwounds. I'm going to probably change them this afternoon.

So the man that inspired my dad to learn how to play guitar is thinking about getting rid of his early 70's LP deluxe. It's cherry sunburst with lots of play wear (all original). When I was learning to play this guitar inspired me and my first 'nice' guitar was an 80's LP deluxe but have since sold it regrettably. I've always said if this guitar becomes available I wanted to try and get it. The owner of said 70's LP is looking for something 'different'. I have a feeler out there about a possible trade for this EC JM.

Bad Idea to trade with the rarity of this model or is sentimental value and mojo actually worth more?

Update: Turns out the mojo wasn't worth the price in my opinion. The LP deluxe had a headstock crack and needed a complete refret. On top of all that he wanted $3K for the guitar, no trades!

I'm highly satisfied with this EC Jazz and hope you guys get to try one. I did restring with new flatwounds and am thinking of the mastery bridge so I can try some normal roundwounds on this guitar.

Oh man...that is such a beautiful Jazzy! Congrats man. I've got a '62 AVRI Jazzy that simply amazes me. These are such fun instruments. Enjoy it!

Awesome guitar congrats! I saw Elvis play his at The Oxford Alehouse in '77.
