srg2520 hesitation

Im buying a srg2520 on friday cosmo black preowned for $395. Iv been doing my homework on some information and i got this "The SRG was conceived in 2003 for a single production by the famous violin makers of FujiGen Gakki in Japan for the account of Ibanez and a very known salesman of instruments in Japan, Shimamura. This explains the S of the SRG. On the chain, there was a hundred of it, not more. They are to 50% of the RG, which make the difference is Japanese construction (known to be of better quality compared to the American RG), an exemplary completion (50 blanches/50 black), microphones to measure DiMarzio (which will quickly be replaced by NTM on mine, for more potato and the possibility of splitter thedouble ones in doubles) and finally a handle wizard with mother-of-pearl points and a mother-of-pearl net also around the key. Being at the base a RG, it did not know of flight of price during its first sale but all the series was sold and one spoke more about it. For the blow, when the latter remade surface it could not be very expensive because almost nobody knows this series." Any ideas and opinion for this prestige? is it worth it for the price I'l be the third owner. Opinions would be a great help

Re: srg2520 hesitation

thanks for the quick reply. Im excited too and curious... do you think the price is fair for $395? According to the owner just hairline scratches on the guitar from polishing. Is there any similar prestige model to compare it too?

Buy it!! Great price for an awesome guitar!!
Pearl bound super wizard neck with large abalone dots,built by J custom shop for Shimamura model.Features J customs trademark clear coated rear of headstock up to nut.

Prestige spec fret work (NOT J custom fret work),though the nicest fret job i've owned or played on a Prestige model.

Mines a beautiful piece of Basswood which is very vocal and just has a great tone.
I have EVO's in mine and it sings/SCREAMS!!

Do it mate,super RARE,super quality,super price! You will regret forever if you let it go.
