Re: worth it?

That's not an ATD swirl, it is a Japanese MKR (mustard/ketchup/relish) swirl. It is also priced at about twice what I would guess to be a decent price. I wouldn't touch it at that price.

Re: worth it?

That guitar has been there for many months and there not willing to move on price for it, I think its way over priced.

Re: worth it?

Horrible swirl too. Theres one on the bay right now with a BIN for $2500 that has a way better swirl. I can't post the number but just search for Ibanez Universe.

Re: worth it?

I'm not entirely sure about US prices, but I think you could get a much nicer one at half the price.

Re: worth it?

There have been a few in the classifieds here of late; I'd wait on one here or see what Rich has lying around if that's the kind of cash you have to spend. Rich has a few really nice ones; whether he'll part with one is another story
And update your location to Tennessee before posting in the classifieds

Re: worth it?

just saw the link. No way its worth 6K for an MKR. Especially a bad one.

Re: worth it?

Yeah too expensive. I think they believe they can get more because it's signed, dummies. That lowers the value to me.

They dont say its an ATD. Say write "ADT". Maybe a very rare MC from an unknown master of swirl ;-)
