Question Deal of my life?

Hey...
So I spotted this J.Custom RG-Paint2 for €1100.


There's this friend of mine, looking for an Ibby up to €1000. And, of course, I recommended him this JCRG, because it's worth the extra €100.
But surprise... he says he doesn't like it, that it's ugly, so... e won't buy it.

So... I made him a proposal: I'll buy this JCRG for myself and he buys me my RG-470 (heavily customized) for the same price I shall buy the JCRG!

(My RG-470 JB has Evo2/HS-2/PAF Pro and a OFR Pro bridge.)



Speechless!!!

... you gotta do what you gotta do
had a similar situation back a few years back; I traded an RG470 fully modded + customized for a beat-up but fully playable UV777GR

Re: Deal of my life?

Ah... good news and bad news.

The good news is that he will keep being a friend... so, the bad news is that he opted for an RG2550.
I'd rather buy the JCRG if I were standing in his shoes...

Oh well... stop dreaming, Gilly!

Re: Deal of my life?

I agree that the paint is ugly but if the specs are great you can always refinish it. And seeing as how it is a J-Custom I'd wager the specs are pretty great. Although the 2550 is the 2nd from top of the line bolt-on RGs you can get in Canada so it isn't a bad guitar by any stretch of the mind either...

It looks like a mistake. Certain patterns and color combination are naturally offensive to the human senses. That guitar has em' all.
If Paul Gilbert played it, it would look cool though.

Exactly. This guitar is very Gilbert-ish! Very 80s!
And refinishing this guitar would be like making a graffitti on a Ferrari F50!

Pity I didn't get to do the trade... haha!

Your friend is right. That guitar is FUGLY!

And shame on you for trying to stick him with a 470 for over a grand -- pickups or not.

Re: Deal of my life?

No shame!
He was the one who said "I wouldn't buy that one, but I'd give you €1100 for your RG470!"... and I just told him to think again and not ask twice, because I'd have to accept it!

He didn't ask twice and he ended up buying a brand new RG2550.
(Yet another black guitar... ...wow!)
