Re: what are gigers worth?

Geiger do you mean? What model is it? The original RGTs were actually fairly reasonably priced as far as special editions go. Drop in an Edge Pro and your choice of pickups and it's one kickass axe. I always wanted one.

The S series one was the really expensive one.

Re: what are gigers worth?

If its the one below, it's an RGhRG1 based on an 2006 RG370... looks cool but not worth too much.




You can see the specs here:

Re: what are gigers worth?

The neck-thru versions were based on the RGT42...nicer, but still not worth a bunch....

I see the first two Giger RGs go for between $350 and $450 on a regular basis.

Nice work. I have never really seen these go for too much more than sub $1000.00 in Aust.

Somebody must have been keen or saw something I never have.......

Yeah, I think it was the coolest of the bunch. I'd love to score one of them with the case, but they don't come around as often and when they do people want way more than I'd pay for any Korean Ibby.

In the buyers defense, it was a wife of a huge Giger collector and bought it for a birthday present. so probably not what its real value is as a guitar.. Think he has all the gigers in his collection now.

Plus at the time the same model was selling in Melbourne shops for over 2k at the time...

Hey, seriously good luck to you. I wish I was ever so fortunate to get a good price on a guitar. Kudos to you for having the smarts to sell it when you did.
