Price for SC1620 Prestige? And SC620? What's the diff? - Don

Did a search and couldn't find anything.

Been offered some guitars...

What is the going rate on the SC620? In great condition, or very very good. How about just very good?

How about the Prestige SC1620?

Is there a huge difference between the guitars for that matter?

Someone wrote that one model replaced the other, but that can't be, since they're both in the 2000 catalog.

Thanks everyone!

Eric

In the last year I've bought 2 and sold 1 SC620. *(great axe) *All transactions were for $500-600, and both guitars were in excellent condition. *I consider these a bargain.

SC620 & 1620 are the same guitar on all important points. *Slightly different finish, I think; that's the only difference.

Hi Jester, thanks for the info.

I'm not sure, but I read somewhere that the 1620 has an ebony fingerboard. Is this true? Does the 620 have one?

I guess another diffrence would be the "6 extra steps of hand finishing!" Does this really make a big difference? Just out of curiosity, what *are the 6 extra steps of hand finishing? Or is that an Ibanez secret, like the 11 secret herbs and spices?

I'm really having trouble deciding between both these guitars...

Yes, the 620 has an ebony board (with binding) - very nice.

I dunno about the finishing steps. *Could be right, could be hype. *I know the finish on my 620 is one of the nicest I've seen.

Thanks for the help, Jester.

I made up my mind.

I bought both of them.

Time will decide which one I'll keep!
