Wondering if there would be any interest if I was to sell a couple of these?


These are NOT for sale yet, hence NOT in the classifieds.

Just pondering thinning down super-strat heard a bit and moving more to LesPauls. These are all custom refinishes - purely Ibanez parts, no junk. SD or Dimarzios depending on the guitar, and all in mint shape. The Purple is an RG570 with a wizard neck, the Blue is an RG1570 Prestige with hand-inlayed mop/abalone. Also have a green JCustom (edit: Team J. Craft), but no pics yet.

Need thoughts as to what would be fair pricing, and if anyone would even be interested. If I decide to sell, I'll probably keep at least one, as I can't do the work any more. More pics and info can be seen on my site at www.aceforever.com.

These inlays on the blue one are beautiful, really love this disappearing pyramid! The finish is cool but not my cup of tea. May be you will find some interest persons.

Image sizes are limited here for attachments. However, there are quite a few larger images, close-ups, etc. on my website (http://www.aceforever.com) if anyone is interested.. I don't have any pro-shot pics of the green swirl-type JCustom, but there are a few prototype and in-process pics on the site under 'Chameleon'. Would love to be able to do more in the future, but don't think my wrists can take it.

The blue Prestige seems to be generating the most attention... here's some extra specs that I messaged another individual:

This one has the most into it, work and materials, with the abalone and mother of pearl inlays on a Madagascar Ebony fret board. It has been professionally Pleked to assure the fret-height and radius accuracy. The pickups are Dimarzio's, PAF Pro Neck, Area 58 middle and Evo2 Bridge and 5-way superswitch. Edge Pro tremelo. Ibanez smoked-chrome hardware. The paint is a semi-metallic blue on the sides with a seam-less fade to the blue print (seen in the picture) on front and back. There's probably more I'm forgetting, such as an Ibanez UV1000C hard case, etc.

Still wondering... what kind of pricing? Set a flat price on each based on specs, or an average price on all and first two sold goes? I'd like to keep 1, but don't have a preference as I love 'em all. Just want one to keep to say, "I did that one" ya know? I'm ultimately in the market for a "real" Les Paul, so sale only, or open it up to trades? Thoughts???

Team J.Craft does not mean it's a J.Custom. It's a Prestige.

And the finishes are cool, but the monkey grips ruin all of them for me.

I could be wrong... but from a previous post (http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f16/te...aft-72588.html), to quote Rich:
Quote:
It is marketting but today the only guitars made in Japan are Prestige and JC. They both use the same serial transfers, TJC. It's not used on anything else, just their Japanese Prestige and JCustoms.
This guitar started its life as a Prestige 1570, made in Japan, stamped Team J. Craft and retains all neck, body and hardware from its origins. Sorry for any confusion, as I'm not wanting to mislead anyone, and have edited the original post. Any differences between J. Custom and Team J. Craft - I stand corrected.

Funny---I spotted these on your site over a year ago, and wanted one!

Let me know when you're ready to part with them.....

I like both.
There are some really cool fabrics out there to cover some guitars.
No Vai, no flowers again
