Evilbay item # 300146773506
He said that if I give him a good offer, he'll just end the auction. So how much is reasonable? Thanks dudes!

$800 in that condition. That looks like the one I sold to a guy in Alaska... for $1100.

The headstock is heavily scratched and it looks like some of the clear coat has come off near the b string tuner.

So you agree with Dino?
I told him "let's start the negotiation at $700." But I was thinkin that it's actually worth about $800, too. Any more feedback would be nice. thanks guys.

I suppose 800 would be the most I would pay for it but I'm really anal when it comes to buying used gear. I can't stand people that try to sell you something that's been beat to hell and they tell you "it's just buckle rash"

Why is the logo in the completely wrong place?

Re: How much should this go for? I need replies quick!!

Which logo are you referring to? Neither of them seem out of place to me.

The headstock logo. Seems to be about an inch further back than what I'm used to seeing. Maybe they're all like this, I dunno, but the "I" in Ibanez should normally be under the D string tuner, pretty much.

Yeah, I'm looking at mine Ibanez, and the logo is the same.
There's a quite a bit of wear, but it all seems to be cosmetic and not functional. $800 seems like a reasonable price.

Like I said earlier, I'm anal when it comes to buying a used guitar. I'm sure it's in working condition though.

Errgh. The dude backed out and said he'd rather me just bid. Whatever. Its only at around $400 right now, so I don't expect it to go up that much. I just missed out on a 1200 that sold for 910, perfect condition.

Dude, if you were going to pay 910 bucks for a 1200, why not just save a little more and get one from Rich?

Well...the only difference from him would be a nice setup. I'm content with my setups.
