Ibanez SC500 (nylon strings)

Hi guys,

I'd have the chance of buying one of these for 750 USD but I honestly have no idea of how much these babies costed and if it would be a good deal. I'm mainly a classical guitarist so the idea of having a nylon-string axe with 22 frets and AANJ sounds really AWESOME!

If anyone can give me any info on them it would be greatly apreciated. Here's the best pic I could get of the axe:

Re: Ibanez SC500 (nylon strings)

Are you in Argntina now to personally check it out?

I also wanted it but I feel its too risky to buy it without trying it, and since Im still in Mexico (till the end of August), I didnt feel like taking the chance.

Also, I dont know how much they costed new. My bet is that they would ve been around 900-1100 USD new.

I think Mannys imported a couple of this guitars, so at least in Argentina the odds of finding one are not so slim.

Re: Ibanez SC500 (nylon strings)

Well I'm not in Argentina ATM but I'm taking the flight this Wednesday and I should be there on Thursday. Of course I'd never buy this one without trying it but since he states he's located in Capital then that shouldn't be a problem. I just wanted a price indication and I'll make sure to check out Manny's as well when I'm there.

Thanks for the advice.

Re: Ibanez SC500 (nylon strings)

Mannys had a couple of acoustic Talmans last i was there, one nylon, one steel, both Korean made by Cort... didnt try them...

Now this S... i dunno... does Ibanez even make acoustics in japan? cause $750 sounds like a lot for a Cort axe, wether you can try it out or not...

Nice guitar....I don't know that I'd pay $700 for it, since it's kind of a quirky niche instrument, but it's still really cool.

Re: Ibanez SC500 (nylon strings)

Well I'm in Argentina now so I guess I'll try to find out as much as I can from the dealers around here about the price and then I'll give her a try to see if she convinces me. I really want one of these specially for playing with the orchestra in my school. I'll let you guys know what happens.

Thanks everyone for the help!

that would be a neat purpose. Kinda remindes of a Godin Multiac Nylon, which I absolutely love.

Re: Ibanez SC500 (nylon strings)

Well, I finally bought this guitar.

It was in excellent shape. I paid 650USD for it (it costed about 1200 new here in Argentina 7 years ago, so my bet is that it would be about 20-30% more if it was still in production this days. So I think its a pretty good price (for argentina).

It sounds quite good and it is as comfortable as an electric guitar.
