Thumbs up FS: Ibanez S2170FW (burled poplar)

I am selling my 2007 S2170FW to make room and to get funds towards a bigger purchase.

* Price: Paypal $725 + shipping (US only).
If you are in the Boston area I'm happy to meet up so you can check it out.

* Pics: Ibanez S2170FW (taken by the previous owner, way better camera than mine). I take more detail pictures if somebody shows interest.

* Potential trades: $ is king, but I could soften to a new Charvel, GSK, Jackson, or of course 90ties MIJ Ibanez RG/S. Maybe a LP Traditional. PM me if you have a suggestion.

------------------

* Background: I am the second owner - I bought it locally off craigslist in fall 2008 as temporary guitar after moving to US. After getting more gear I barely played it again. But I couldn't get myself to sell it till recently. My wife loves its looks and suggested we just hang it on the wall (she can't play, lol).

* Details: It's a discontinued 2007 MIK Ibanez S2170FW, all stock, featuring a wonderful burled poplar top in natural finish - I dare you to find a nicer burl top on a 2170FW out there. It is overall very clean, the few cosmetical beefs I have with it are listed below. It is set up, bore-oiled fretboard, clean, and has a new set of EB Slinky 9ers on it.

It's a very resonant guitar with a loud, responsive and full unplugged sound that translates great into the amp. I guess the mahogany body combined with a Wizard II neck do that. The pickups are maybe not the best for ultra-high gain, but handle everything else, I recorded stuff ranging from Jazz improv to Progressive Metal with it. The trem has a nice spongy feel (I took the ZPS out).

* Cosmetical issues (all there since I got it, also see pictures):
- The pickup rings are polished to chrome, as the original cosmo black coating just looked too ugly too quickly.
- a slight 1x2mm indentation in the rosewood at the low E string, 3rd fret, according to the previous owner already there at time of purchase.
- light buckle rash on the back, mostly between the AANJ heel and the trem cover plate.
- a barely visible, fine 2" scratch on the headstock front, probably from a prior string change.
- two small scratches/dings on the back of the bass-side horn.
- A hint of cosmo wear on the bridge.

* Specs:
- Wizard II Prestige neck
- 5-piece maple/bubinga neck
- Mahogany w/poplar burl top body, natural finish
- 22 jumbo frets
- bound rosewood finger board
- ZR bridge with ZPS
- DiMarzio/IBZ pickups (H/S/H)
- Prestige "moon" inlay on 12th fret
- Rosewood truss rod cover, abalone Ibanez inlay
- Original red plushy interior Prestige S hardshell case (I'm actually tempted to keep that one for myself, lol).

And bump again. Trying to sell this to indecisive people through craigslist doesnt seem to work. PM me if you need further info on the guitar. Just played it today for a short bit, classy axe.
