Almost mine... chromoboy :D, but fair price?

hey guys,
I am about to buy a chromeboy , the most stunning guitar i've ever seen , but it has a little spot on the side of the body... (see pics)
I think I've made a nice deal: 2100 euro's, about 2750 Dollars. I think it's a fair price. What do you guys think? Is it good value for money? Please help me with your expertise!!!
Adios!

Here some pics:

You mean 2100 dollars is about 1600 euros right....?

So how much are you paying for her: 2100 euros or 2100 dollars?

I'm not a Chromeboy expert (I hate plain dot inalys ) but I'm pretty sure you can call it a good deal if you pay her 1600 dollars!

Hmm. Not sure I would pay US$2800 for a JS10 with that finish problem on the side. I paid less for mine and it only has very minor imperfections that you can't see from more than 4 feet away. Are there very few of these on the used market right now?

I meant the French guy... who do mean Please give me a link asap, cause I'm about to make an appointment to complete the transaction. Maybe I can convince him to lower the price even more if you guys say it is not very good value for money. I don't want to overpay ...
thnx

The guy with two is ME!!! Hope the nice guy joke works now.

It is all up to you with regard to price on the one you are looking to complete on. If you are happy to pay, then go for it (I would want more than 2100Euros for mine and I'more into trades) If you are wanting to play the guitars regularly as your main guitar and never sell it, and the bit on the side doesn't bother you, then as long as you are happy go for it. If you are ever going to sell the guitar - it will be harder to sell the one with the chrome missing that's all. Either way they are the coolest of guitars

Mr. Satriani,

I have an ad here at Jemsite that has all that info.

http://www.jemsite.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=35965

I am really looking to see what trades or trades + cash are out there, but if you want to drop me a line on [email protected] I can send you pics and any other description you like.

But PLEASE don't blow your deal, if that is the guitar you want at the price you want to Pay!!!!!!

Mr. Satriani,

You also contacted me about my JS10th.
Mine is probably in better shape than this one, but I don't think you'll have a lot of chances finding a JS10th in the Netherlands for less then 2500 euros.

certainly not mine!
