What is my rg550 worth?

Hi -

I am contemplating about selling/trading my rg550 away as i don't play it as much anymore; the neck while fast is too thin for me and i prefer slightly thicker necks.

Anyways, it's an ibanez rg550, a player's guitar meaning there are several nicks along the edge of the body and on the back. The edge nicks go thru to the wood. It has a very thin wizard neck (pre-aanj) and is set up for 9-42s. The bridge is a lo pro edge, pearl pickguard (H-x-H) - there is a hole where the volume knob normally is but i have filled it with epoxy. It can easily be removed (epoxy) if needed. The sticker is a static cling sticker and can also be removed without any problem. Finally pickups are duncan distortion (bridge) and duncan screamin demon (neck). There is a 3-way switch with the middle position for the inner coils of each pickup. It would come with a molded ibanez case as well as the whammy bar.
See pic below.

Thanks

Jeff

i'd guess around 400 because 550's are usually 400-600 dollars i believe, but with the mods and wear i don't know

Man I have seen alot of guitar appraisal threads lately where jemsitters ask about the worth of their guitars. I think someone here should open up a single general thread for guitar appraisal where anyone wishes to find out the price of their guitars, can do so in that only one thread...

That would be hard going through all those posts after a while. I think there should be an appraisal section.

Anyways, with all the mods, I'd say $375.

Cool. Thanks everyone. I am contemplating of trading it for a peavey wolfgang exp (korean model) but i guess i would have to add some cash to make it equal.

I think outright selling it is better than trading it. Usually you won't get the price you are looking for, and I wouldn't go any lower than $350. Heck, I've seen a maple neck alone go for almost $200.

Thanks. I'd probably make out better if i parted it out but then run into the risk of selling only pieces and i'd be left with one less guitar. Decisions....
