What would be a fair price for a New Old-Stock RG2020X Piezo model in the U.K.? You may have seen my post about my search for a 2020X the other day.
I've found this one and it's been in the shop since it was new (so it is still new essentialy)and has only been played in the shop. It looked Black in the original tiny pics I saw but I eventually got some better pictures from the guy today and it is Blue (as suspected). It still looks like new except for a smallish scratch on the back from a careless customer trying it out.
I know prices are higher here in the UK than they are in the US so what do you think would be a fair price for such a guitar? I've been trying to find a used one and either there isn't many about or the people who have them aren't selling because I've had no luck except for this one. The guy will still give me a 2-year warranty on it as well, which can't be bad! What's the highest (UK Price) I should be prepared to pay for it? I'd be really grateful for some opinions and advice about this please.
Here's some pictures of the guitar up close;
They're not the best pictures but they seem to show that it's still pretty clean and it looks like a nice guitar.
I was undecided whether to get one of these or to try a 7-string RG. Are the new RG1527's the same quality guitar as the 2020X's? I know they're a very different guitar but I'm talking about build quality and playability. The 2020X and the 2120X's were a lot more expensive than something like a new RG1527 but is that just down to the 'Double-Edge' bridge and mahogany body or are the 2020X's generally a higher quality instrument?
I know there's quite a few questions here but I'm ready to make a decision(well almost!) and I just want to be sure about what I get. I tend to be a very cautious buyer but it usually works out best that way and I end up with what I actually want in the end. I've made impulse purchases before and lived to regret it,lol.
