The pictures are a bit misleading. On the last one, if you look around the strap button, you kinda see that half circle lighter shape around it. That's a gouge in the clearcoat. It goes all the way through the clearcoat (about 1/8" thick) to the paint, but no wood is showing. That one is about 3/4" in diameter and is the worst damage done to the guitar. There are two other smaller gouges of that magnitude on the bottom edge of the guitar. There are also a bunch of places on it where something impacted into the finish, not enough to take any out but i guess air got under it and it appears lighter there where there is a small air pocket between the paint and the clear coat. The headstock is nicked up a bit but can be fairly easily repaired w/ some sand paper.

In it's current condition, about how much would you guys say this is worth?

Wow that's actually not a bad swirl The back is very classy

I definately think you'd get at least twice what you paid for it on a well known auction site, maybe even 3 times !!!

WOW, $400 got you a GMC??? I hate the swirl on that one (no offense) but considering what you paid, you can easily send it back to Darren for a new GMC swirl and have it minty fresh again!!!

CONGRATS BRO!, nice snag!!!

No Merkert, what a STEAL. For U$400. You even buy a new RG 3xx for this price.

MAN!!! I really really really liked this swirl because it is simply different of all the ones that I already had seen.
The rear (behind) part sample much black ink and a well narrow layer of green.
Wonderful!!!

Heh I know I feel pretty lucky I love the back of the guitar. The front is ok. There's some real nice fine detail in it that you only see up close. Like there is a hairline of white that runs across the front that you can't see in the photos. My only beef on the swirl is that there is that one big splotch of green, but hey for what I paid I'm not going to complain
