value of my UV777BK?

ok, well, i haven't been on here for quite some time. i basically quit playing metal, progressive, and all that stuff. just got tired of it and once i bought my new acoustic about 5 months ago.. it is all i play now. i love my new carvin C980t, which i picked over a $2500 dollar taylor, and once i got it.. i just quit playing my UV all together. my UV is in good shape. prolly 8.5-9 outta 10. the only wear is there is wear on the tremelo bar, some wear to the chrome on the bridge, but i took pretty good care of it, so it wouldn't get worn out too quickly. also, the only paint flaw is that there is a small ding on the arm rest, but it is only in the clear coat. there are a few very very small chips on the bottom ege on the back edge not the front. none of them are wider then a MM and no longer the about 2. there are prolly 3 of those, but i'm going to touch them up and they shouldn't be noticable.

this guitar has been VERY well taken care of it. i'm the second owner and any/all of the things wrong with this besides wear on the hardware is from the previous owner. out of my 9 guitars not a single on has a dent, ding, or scratch that i've put on it, because i'm sooo carefull with my instruments. so, i have a two kids who want to pay me $1000 for my guitar along with the case and then have me set it up for them. i set up some floyd tremelos at my school, because i'm good with them, so the thing will play like it is new!! : )

i haven't been around these forums for a year or two, so i was wondering if this is a fair price or if i could get more out of it? i paid 1200 for it. it also has some nice strap locks on it and will have a new set of strings and i'll set up the action to their preferance. fair price or not?

NOTE: i'm selling this to prolly buy a more blues oriented electric. i've warm myself out of playing crap with sweeps for 5 mins and tremelo picking for 10 minutes. not that i hate sweeps, but i find more skill and a much more pleasurable sound in listening to a well played sweep in a blues or jazz song then a boring prog sweep followed by a song that sounds like everyother shred solo. also, i need money for a fishman acousitc amp and a nicer mic as i'm starting to play solo gigs and some more mellow john mayer trio rock stuff and i need better equipment for this genre.

oh yeah... and i think that jems and uv's play SLOWWWWWW! i'd love to have me a jem10th though! but nothing compares to the wizard II of my rg

thanks alot for your help all!!! keep rocking the ibanez!!

Re: value of my UV777BK?

Considering the small dings and trem wear, $1000 is probably a pretty good price. I'd bet you could get a little more on **** if you wanted to mess with that.

Good luck with your new musical direction. It's ok though, you can like John Mayer and Dream Theater at the same time. We won't tell anybody.
