The only funny thing I saw: "The guitar is 100% original (...) tremelo arm is not original."

You were lucky. Considering this is less than what I paid for my $2000 UVMC about ten years back, for many of us the price is not as bad as it looks.

Re: gotta see this one...Bhhahhhahhhhaaahhaa

Yeah, but it's not a UVMC. It's an RG765. MINT it wouldn't be worth that much. MINT it wouldn't be worth HALF that. And there's not even a "best offer" option. Crazy.

Yeah, the price is high. But on the other side this is a very limited model, like the holy grail of RG's .Kinda hard to say what its worth since they are hardly ever for sale.

Re: gotta see this one...Bhhahhhahhhhaaahhaa

It's worth $700. That's what I paid for the same guitar, in similar condition, last week. And I paid the same price for a red one two weeks before (before UPS lost it...). Five times that is ridiculous. Anyone who pays that is also ridiculous. I can see, if you had an insane obsession with having an RG765DY, and could find a MINT one, paying $1500. But $3500? Hey, be my guest. In fact, I'll sell you MINE for a mere $3000. What a steal!

Re: gotta see this one...Bhhahhhahhhhaaahhaa

For you it's worth 700usd, for another buyer it may be worth more. I personally value these 765 guitars a little higher just because I really like the HS-combined with the reverese headstock. Also very few made. However, I have to agree with you, the price is high and I don't think the seller would get this amount for the guitar.

Re: gotta see this one...Bhhahhhahhhhaaahhaa

Exactly....I did pay $1500 for mine, years ago, 2008 or so, and it is MINT. Then I found a red one in players condition on craigslist and I got it for under $300, so I figure it balances out. I do love them, but I just had to laugh at the price this guy has set for this one...he's way off.

Re: gotta see this one...Bhhahhhahhhhaaahhaa

I hate people that think they have some hidden treasure and try to get $$$ over the top for it.
I also hate people that pay toooo much for guitars.

Inflating the guitar maket is bad for everyone.

Look what people paid for both the old pink lined JEM cases last week. Must have wanted them VERY badly. Saw one sell this summer for $80 and it was in better shape than those 2.

I know the selller - he owns a small music store in the Detroit area, and runs our local vintage-swap-shows. He's a good guy trying to turn a buck in the Detroit area, which ain't easy at the moment. He'll come down again when nobody buys.
