Just bought a new guitar online....
So, anyway... I just did a little impulse buying here. I've been looking for a cheap but decent guitar to have as a back up or maybe I'll make my main one. It's a Ibanez RG350dx... The black and chrome one. Now, The problem here is that it's used and I have never seen it before. I've talked to two different associates at the store in Georgia and they both said the same that with a decent cleaning and setup it'll play like new.
The guy said that trem works fine but it doesn't really flutter or do any of the "vai" like tricks but I think that's from the setup. I've seen how GC takes care of their FR guitars.
There's no paint chips or cracks on the guitar as I can tell from the pictures. The pickguard is deft. worn down since it was changing from chrome to black... Now, I've found cheap replacements on the bay for around 10 dollars.... So, that won't be a problem.
I'm just hoping that I'm not getting into a bad situation here.. Like spending more money than the guitar to fix it up. The guitar only costs 159 dollars.... I accidentally said yes to he warranty plan but I'm thinking of calling them tomorrow to get my money back on that. Since, I'm planning on customizing the guitar....
So, what do you guys think? Did I just make a mistake here? Like I said I have a 30 day return police so I hope they stick to that.
Thanks for your input. I should have the guitar in my hands by Thursday.
