Are these worth looking at? 2 for sale locally, same owner. He wants $1500 for an Emerald with case and $1600 for a Ruby with case, both with P-90s.

I always fancied amethyst myself, but idk 1.5 and 1.6 feel slightly too much, I myself would pay 1.2 or 1.3 tops

Well apparently gibson prices have skyrocketed due to pandemic, that's true, but gem series feel like a marmite guitars

I remember these. Local shop had an emerald green one when these were new. At the time I had only been playing about a year or so and didn’t know a ton about gear at that point. I remember the 60 cycle hum from the P90s sucked. Of course I later learned why it had that noise lol. This was back when shops charged list price on gear and mail order was cleaning their clocks.

Owned a really nice, near mint Topaz.
Sold it a couple of years ago for $900 with a case.
Although pretty cool guitars, I don't think I'd purchase another one.
Especially at those prices.

If you can get them down a few hundred I'd consider it.
