Which guitars to sell?

Iíve come to the sad conclusion that I just have too many guitars and I donít play them all. Iím getting a Les Paul custom in the next few weeks so I really need to free up some cash too. I need some help choosing what to sell and what to keep. I have two USGR30s one is orange and one is purple. I also have a RGT3120 prestige in trans purple from the first few years with EMGs in it. Also have a Charvel 750XL in NOS condition. I donít play the rg3120 but I love it. The USGRs I love but I also have a trans red RG3120 the is my main superstrat so I really have too many of the same guitar. Is the RGT worth anything anymore? Are the USGRs30 holding value at all or are they moving quickly. I donít want to sell a guitar that I will kick myself for selling down the road. Iíve never sold but one guitar in 25 years but Iím up over 30 now and I just really want a few that I will always play.

I'd blow out the Charvel and keep the ones you like to play.
Good luck.

Re: Which guitars to sell?

Excuse me for sounding stupid, but what does 'NOS condition' mean: nice old socks? not overly smart? needing orthopedic surgery?

I must be getting old becuase I didn't know what "" meant untill a coupleof months back, or "LOL" for that matter!!

Re: Which guitars to sell?

Just picked up the GT3120 again last night and remembered why I bought it. I may sel off one USGR and the Charvel. I really wish I could just have 900 guitars.
Anybody know what a USRG30 or a RGT3120 trans purple go for?

Post pictures so we can see how accurate your perspective of NOS is and the condition of the other axes as well.

The RGT3120 trans purple is a dream guitar - if i had it I would not sell it - so if you do sell it - sell it to me! and you will know it will be well taken care of!

Agreed. Can't help thinking that you should keep the Charvel. They are sought after, but think that they will become a classic in years to come.

YMMV

I have the three Charvels that I wanted all in trans red from that era. I have a 375 (my dad bought me) and a 475 ( same as the 375 but with active eletronics and shark fins etc, and the 750LX that I just can't play. I'm looking for a Gibson Les Paul or a Jackson Randy Rhoads that I wil actually play but I can't justify those until I have some more cash... and room.

The Charvel is one of the most sought after of the imports from that era though so it's nice to have but the 24frets and shape make it hard for me to play.

The red Ibanez in my #1 superstrat. I use it all the time. The blue one isn't worth that much and will most likely be gone too. It was some kind on Guitar center special deal I got as a backup the the 3120 before I had all the other madness.
