S2170

I'm planning on buying a S2170 next month, but i would like to hear some opinions...
It's made in korea, right?
How does the korea prestiges compare to the japan prestiges? Are they about equal or is it a huge downstep from the japan made ones?

Re: S2170

I have one.

I'm getting it replaced. It has some issues.

My advice is to inspect it Very closley.

They seems to be inconsistent at best. I will have a better idea when I recieve the replacement. Some people have them and have no issues.

Check out my thread...if you like.

Re: S2170

I'd say it's a roll of the dice then. For the money.... a little over a thousand US. It's a good value. But if you have a problem....who knows. Mine plays and sounds good.

Even if there are issues.

Though, I'm not so pleased with the problems...

But...you already read about that.

I don't really know what else I can say. Bocephus has one. Ask him.

Re: S2170

I'll ask him...yeah, about the price, the cheapest S2170 i've found is around $1700, trust me, that's a pretty good price in europe, they cost $2500 here in sweden..But i'm beginning to think that $1700 isn't cheap enough

$1700 US isn't IMHO.

But what are the prices of other similiar guitars in your area?

Re: S2170

I emailed a dealer in USA, they wanted $1099 for it, but in the end, it doesn't get much cheaper than buying it from germany, because of shipping and taxes, i would probably save $1-200.

Similiar guitars? I don't really know what i should be comparing with, but other guitars i've been looking at are a few Caparisons, Edwards, ESP's and stuff like that.. The Caparisons are a few $100 more than the S, but it's probably a better guitar.. The Edwards guitars are a few $100 cheaper than the S... The ESP's that i'm interested in are a few $100 more than the S
