    Now, as far as the original question....


    they don't assess all that high, really. They are still kinda a cult guitar. Disappointing. IME it is not worth near as much as if it were a Strat or a Tele in the same condition.

    I have an original 63 Jaguar in excellent condition, and it never seems to be valued at much more than the price of a brand new one. If it were a Strat I could sell it and buy a car, but since it is a Jaguar I can sell it for enough to buy car insurance.

    I agree that they are less worth than their Strat- or Telebrothers, but the last couple of years their selling/buying value seems to really have gone up, especially here in Europe!
    I suppose that has got to do with the indierockbands (Nirvana, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., ...) of the nineties that liked to use them.
    A bit regrettably, 'cause I don't really care that much for the value they have for other people, I just want a good guitar
    The common opinion seems to be that the vintage ones are 'overpriced' on the market. I couldn't get the 1600 euros I wanted for the mint condition 90s Gretsch SiverlJet, so a swap with a (noncollectable but greatplaying) model that suits me the best was a good deal for me personnaly!

    btw: my previous car cost 500 euro and it carried me for four years
