J-Custom JCRG5VV

I am about to buy one of this guitar in my local chop; but i don't really know if it a good deal: this guitar is new (but in chop for a long time i suppose) for 2000 usd (=euro).
Perhaps one of you already own this model, or know a little bit about it.

this is a link (ibanez register) where you can see this kind of guitar

Thats a sweet guitar. I'm no expert but I gather from what I read on here, that sounds like a fairly normal price for this guitar where you live.

Maybe someone else will chime in and help you out, I'm just remembering things I've read before about prices of Ibanez guitars over seas.

That's close to what the RG9670s were selling for in Tokyo a couple weeks ago, which is similar except that it's neck-through, and from the pics it doesn't look like the 5 is? They were also selling a similar neck-through with no vine for around $1800 US. Either way that's quite a guitar!...and the price seems to be fair.

There is a new one in a shop around here for 2500 euro, that should give you a reference point...if you have the cash then go for it, it's a beautiful guitar!
