Looking to trade a 1985 G&L Rampage

Greetings friends

Re: Looking to trade a 1985 G&L Rampage

Realistically a good condition G&L rampage would trade for about 1/4 to 1/3 of a value of what a JEM5VWH would in the UK. I'd expect, if you found anyone in UK/Eire really wanting to get rid of a JEM5WH, that they'd possibly trade it in a worse condition for the G&L plus about 400.

Case in point, the only G&L Rampage on sale in the UK at the moment on eBay is going for 280 with no chips on the body (some on the headstock though) and minimal fret wear (listing says none but I never believe listings when it comes to fret wear). JEM5WH's in that condition go for 1k+ often.

If you're really after an Ibanez I'd suggest an RG655/RG3xxx which can be had used for 500-600, although even then you'd have to trade/sell your G&L plus add some extra funds.

Roachy, that would be true of a G&L tribute, not a USA model, which is what I think the OP has.

Jem5VWH? The OP is after a UV.

Oh dear, haven't I messed up. Apologies, definitely didn't read the thread properly!

I honestly never knew that G&L had USA models, that does make a lot more sense now, thanks for the info.

And yep, read which guitar he was after wrong too, apologies again.
