I walked into a shop wednesday, and for some reason a PRS CE24 gave me some instant gas. I've played one or two, but never was that impressed. But for some reason this sunburst model just felt right. It was nice and 'played in', the neck had a great maple figure, the finish worn just right. It reminded me of gassing for a vintage strat as a teen. Plugging it into a Laney GH50, it sounded sooo good, and felt really nice. It was an '89 model I believe. I couldn't bring myself to write a $1300 check for it though. So back on the shelf it went. I was really looking around for used Ibanez's, but the only thing I found worth buying was an RG 570EX in a grayish pinkish colour. I believe it was one of the models meant for the euro market. I bought one about 5 years ago, but sold it almost immediately after. The pawn shop wanted $800, telling me they gave the owner $600 for it (I've never heard of a pawn shop dishing out $600 on a used japanese made guitar, except MAYBE a jem) I couldn't help but laugh, as I would've gave them $500 easy. But $800? They tried telling me how 'rare' and 'collectible' they are. They even had it tagged with a model number of 2570ex...which it definately wasn't. The lack of 'prestige' on the headstock made that apparent. All I have to say is those guys got hustled.
