Andres Donis,

That eBay sale is very misleading but it actually doesn't claim to be Brad's custom Ibanez from Dan MacDonald...just the same setup.

Brad's dad, Jim Nowell has it these days. Attached is a recent photo. I had more, but I can't locate them right now since I'm in Boston on a business trip.

Jah Won't Pay is worth what people will pay for it and that varies wildly. Let's say $440 to be safe, but I've seen $900+ for a sealed version (second press). The green version goes for more. You know it came out on vinyl and cassette on April 16th, right? Jah was just re-released.

Expertise

Guarantee: you will receive an answer within 2 days of posting the question -- whether it is a referral to a different expert or a straight answer to your question. I can answer most questions about the band, the significance of the lyrics, the show dates, the unreleased albums and tracks, misinformation, and, above all, I am an expert on their influences and related music. Additionally, if you're looking for that hard to find track or a cheap alternative to the $300 book Crazy Fool: Portrait of a Punk, I might be able to help.

Experience

I have been a huge fan for 16 years, I ran a server which distributed Sublime's live and unreleased music 24/7 for 4 years, I have answered questions about the band daily for a decade on their old website, and I know some of the largest collectors in the world. I created the 5 CD bootleg "Rewind Selector" which documents the influences of Sublime and was the topic of a Spin Magazine interview.

Education/Credentials
I did not study music in college, but I majored in English, so I can write a clear response. I worked as a research assistant in the past, so I have skills in research if I need to figure out an answer.

Past/Present Clients
Sublime fans aren't my clients, but I have distributed swag and rare tracks to all those who want them for years at little cost.
