How much does the PGM10th worth?

I'm saving $$ for building a custom strat..

Today I saw a PGM10th in the music store, I want it so much!
I was thinking to sell my PGM90 in order to get the PGM10 and that's why I posted an ad here. However, after playing my PGM90 for half an hour, I have decided not to sell it! I know I'll miss it FOREVER . Although the PGM10 sounds a little bit better, I can never forget how happy I am with this PGM90.......

How much does a new PGM10th w/case worth? Should I purchase it and resell to somone in US or put in on Ebay so that I can save enough for my custom strat (I just need a few hundreds more)?

mmm...Rich, have you sold any gutiar to Hong Kong before? How much does it cost to ship a guitar from US to Hong Kong (I assume that it cost the same as shipping from HK to US...)?

There aren't alot of people in the US that would buy international from a private party, and just a few more that would buy international from a dealer. This narrows the market considerably, so it narrows the ebay competition that might have given results you were looking for.

There is a PGM10th on Ebay right now! It's selling from Hong Kong!
well, THAT's NOT ME!

I'm quite busy these few days and don't have time to try them out yet.
However, what the # is Ibanez QC doing?

I've seen 2 PGM10 in 1 store, 1 is having an ugly top and the other is missing the truss rod cover.

Another Hong Kong jemsite member AndyMo has sent me an email, saying that beside the 2 PGM10 I saw, there is still 2 at another branch.
He said that actually 1 of the PGM10 I had seen has a crack on the back. Well, this may be caused by poor handling by the workers of the music store.

However, he also told me that THE FRETS ON ALL THOSE 4 PGM10 had been installed poorly, buzz a lot even with high action and that's why he didn't buy 1. I hope I can get there to try them this weekend to cofirm this.

There seems to be a track record of poor quality guitars going to HK. I wonder if Tommy Lee cut a deal with Hoshino to buy their substandards at a discount.

Without brining up any of the past [becuase I've forgotten the particulars] the chances of 4 bad PG10's in one spot just makes ya go Hmmmmm. Of course the guy reporting may not know what he's talking about, or none of them may be setup, but I'm still going Hmmmm.

maybe

Tomlee was having crazy sale for all Ibanez guitars - 25% off - last month

HK$69xx for a new RG3120 blah blah blah, I am savnig $$ for bulding a strat otherwise I should have bought it.

The PGM10th is selling for HK$9800 -> 25%off -> $7350 (That's less than US$1000 man! ) but when I saw the PGM, the sale was over already.

I saw 2 PGM10's in Kuala Lumpur last month for 3900 Malaysian ringits each (which is about $900 US) both in molded Ibanez cases, M100's I think. I wanted to buy one but they wouldn't take visa and that's all I had. It's been bothering me every day since.
