95 RG570CTTB trying to decide to sell or keep...

I've been itching for a JS1200 or JS1000 for a while now and I know my wife wouldn't put up with another guitar purchase anytime soon :P So, one would have to go... DEFINITELY can't get rid of the RG-PR1 or newly puchased RG1421, nor my 92 Amer Tele (first guitar) so that leaves my newly traded-for 1995 RG570CTTB. If it was just an RG570 there wouldn't be any question but this one is somewhat unique: Ash body, Pau Ferro fretboard (which I found I'm fond of), gold hardware with Lo-Pro (my fav)... Since owning the RG-PR1 and now the RG1421 I'm no longer a fan of the glossy finished older necks. However, I'm still afraid I'll possibly regret it even though I don't really play it much. Also it would probably be a good year or so before I can soften up the wife to another guitar.

There's a good pic in the 95 catalog on Rich's site: http://www.ibanezrules.com/catalogs/us/1995/95015.jpg

I'd like to hear your take.

Thanks,

Allen

Personally I wouldn't sell it as it looks rare

Just say to your wife " Just one more...please :') )

It worked for me...I now have 6 guitars :P haha

LOL, that may have worked 2 guitars ago... I have owned and traded/sold an RG550 and 2 HM Strat's since then as well. I get evil looks when I say the word "Guitar" now :P

Would it not be possible to quietly slip another guitar into your collection without the wife knowing?? If so, how severe would the repercussions be if you get rumbled??

Hmmm... IF I sell it, maybe $550 + shipping? Hard to tell what's fair these days. Would include UV1000 case and the guitar has DiMarzio pickups installed (although not F-spaced but I have the stock V6F's from my RG1421 that could go for free).

KEEP - The gold trim is killer with the blue. Sounds like you like the board.
There are many JS1000's and will be in the near and distant future. Try to
put the JS1000 on layaway at your local shop. Before you know it youll be
picking it up. With my fiearms I tell my wife they are like a savings account.
I have never lost money on selling one yet. Anyway...back to your dilemma
KEEP IT.

1989RG560CA: You do make some really good points... Although the Ash body I'm indifferent about, I do love the Pau Ferro fretboard! Also, the Lo-Pro is my favorite trem and the gold hardware looks great with the blue. Maybe I will hang onto it for a while. As much as I REALLY want a JS RIGHT NOW, I tend to be a little hasty with these things...

hasty can be fun with women and booze - slower is sometimes better with art...

Re: 95 RG570CTTB trying to decide to sell or keep...

After playing it for the last 30min... I've decided that I would really regret letting it go. Since it has non F-Spaced DiMarzio pickups and I have a spare set of EMG's I think I'll do a little experimenting

Thanks for the support guys!
