If it's worth it to you, who really cares if it's a "good price"? You certainly wouldn't be getting ripped off, if that's your concern.

I don't want to pay way over street value? I totally agree that if its worth it me, that should be enough but i don't want to get ripped off either.

Re: IBANEZ RG3120 price?

"Street value" on a used, non-rare instrument is something of a fictitious concept. All you can do is search a bit to see what others have gone for, and if you can't find many, then search other, comparable instruments. Even still, if this is the one you want, and you can afford it, you can (and should) override all other concerns of value. I already said, you're not getting ripped off, so don't worry about what anyone else thinks of the price.

If it helps any, if I had the opportunity, I would very likely snag it myself. I'm a fan of HH RGs and this model in particular, so it's a good price as far as I'm concerned.

Re: IBANEZ RG3120 price?

Depends on the color, and condition.

The blue seems to be the most common, and $600-$700 seems to be the average. However, I have seen models with great tops bring as much as $1000.

The red or violin finish tend to bring a bit more.

Re: IBANEZ RG3120 price?

I just sold a red '01 on Tuesday in probably 9 out of 10 condition for $625 with a case. Sold it locally for that price. I possibly could have gotten more on 3bay, but then I would have had to deal with shipping and pay fees. I also sort of just wanted it gone and sold it in basically one day at that price.

I've watched the auction prices for 3120's for some time. You see basically one of two things. You'll see a number of very average condition players, mostly the TW finish, go for $550ish with the case. When you see good condition examples, people either set the reserve price stupidly high (saw one with a $1000 reserve price recently) or they put the starting bid at $800+ and it gets no action.

That was how I arrived at the price I sold mine for.

I really wish you had listed that here...

I want both a red and a VV with the Lo Pro.

I found out the bridge needs to be replaced. No deal.

Anybody here know where I can get a prestige, for about $700?

Prestige what?

Many models fall in there.

I bet you can still get a new 1570 from Rich Harris (Ibanez Rules)

Sorry about that. I was going to list it here next. I didn't think I'd actually get a response from Craigslist. The guy who bought it was the only serious responder I got and he replied almost immediately to the ad. I got one scammer and one lowballer besides him.

If you want a red one, check out Washington, DC Craigslist. There's another guy around here selling one, but IMO it's overpriced and it is definitely a gigged guitar, so I know it isn't in nearly as good of shape as mine.
