Beat up J-Custom RG1680. What's it worth?
I've found a J-custom RG1680 (I think its TW, looks the same as my RG3120TW) the front is OK and the neck seems to be in fair condition, but the back of it... its like its been malested with a metal dildo! Chips and scratches all over it. The bridge pickup also is a standard spaced d'activator so the strings don't line up properly. It needs quite a bit of work to get the finish back up to standard but I don't mind a little project (especially 1 that is worth the time and effort) due to the state of the back I'm guessing the frets need some attention also but who knows yet.
Whats it worth do you think? I can get it for $900 AUD but a as new 1 went for $1150 on ebay not too long ago and that thing was mint. I'm keen for a project but I don't want to get ripped off either.
Cheers all for the help!!!
