Question How much is it worth?

I'm back I have not been here in over an year..and I have a question:

My friend has an RG565 that he is selling and wants to know how much it is worth...It has minimal fret ware.....is in excellent condition...and the color is some sort of teal blue color....how much is a reasonable price for him to ask? The only reason he can;t ask is because he is one of those computer challenged people. Let me know-

Ryan

Re: How much is it worth?

The classic answer is "it's worth whatever someone's willing to pay for it". Beyond that, watch e-bay listings, they pop up fairly regularly and you can get a decent feel for value based on how much auctions close for. To my knowledge, while they're somewhat rare as far as RG models go, I don't think they're exactly in the range of a collector's item, so it's a matter of finding the right buyer for it.

Re: How much is it worth?

thanks for all of your replies....you have answered my questions....so these RGs are rarer than your standard late 80's early 90's RG?

Re: How much is it worth?

Yes. The RG565 was only produced during 1992. Great guitars. I only wish Ibanez would cater for us players who prefer a H-S pickup config (maybe reissue the 565) but they don't seem interested. Everything is H-S-H. Booooo! Not all of us want to be Steve Vai.

Re: How much is it worth?

Gotta be worth $565.

With that kind of logic, I think I might sell my RG7421.
