USA Custom Ibanez

Sorry if this isn't the right forum to ask this. I am considering a trade for what is described as a USA Custom Ibanez Metal Design guitar. It is the UCMD1SK Silver Pea**** finish. Just wondering what a proper trade value might be. It has a few scratches and marks but nothing serious. Thanks for your help.

Someone will inevitably reply by telling you that the guitar is worth whatever someone is willing to pay. That might be true, but it's also totally unhelpful.

There aren't many of those old USA Customs still floating around the auction sites and classifieds; so if the guitar is in really great shape, I wouldn't be surprised if it commands $1200-2000. If it's beat up, you might get no better than $800-1200. And if the finish is ruined, it's basically just an RG570 at that point.

Re: USA Custom Ibanez

By the way, at this point, you're talking about a guitar that is 26 years old. Even if the guitar is in good cosmetic condition, I'd want a tech to verify that the neck is still in good shape. I'd want to investigate the scarf joint for shrinking and the fretboard extension near the neck pickups for signs of separation or humping.
