How much for a brandnew S540-japan? - Possible buy

Hey! I have the opportunity to buy an unblemished, as good as new S540-japan. I was wondering what a reasonable price would be. Also I've got my mind set on the RG-Metal which I can buy for $1200 (new). Is that price OK? Will look killer next to my JEM90th...

For 540s I'd say the range is roughly 300-500...depending on color/finish, etc.

Not for an S540-JAPAN. Average prices that I've seen have been in the $1200-1500 area and up. It's one of the true, original J Customs, and is quite rare. The finish is definitely something to behold! It's a killer acid-type multi-color. Way cool!

I think this was the guitar in question. It was a very good deal, I had it up for sniping. Were you the buyer?

Just a guess but I think marty10 came in 5th. Should have pumped up the volume a little. Can't blame you though considering the only answer you got before it closed was $300-500.

Sorry, my bad on the low quote! Didn't realize "Japan" was a model name...was thinking typical S540 MIJ.
