$30,000 Reb Beach model on Ebay

Anyone else see this..

No best offer, so he really wants 30k...

1 of 100 he says, but I havent ever seen a vai model go for that much, so he must be dreaming right ??

Re: $30,000 Reb Beach model on Ebay

I think auctions like that are all about telling those who are looking for one that there is one for sale. Price is mad, but if I win the lottery, I'll buy it. It's one of the most awesome models Ibanez ever made!

Re: $30,000 Reb Beach model on Ebay

99.9% of the world has no idea who Reb Beach is, so you are already removing any big collector as far as music memorabilia is concerned, so in essence its a limited edition Ibanez 1 of 100, the fact that its a reb beach model really has no bearing on the issue...

Its so not worth 30k its not even funny

My j Custom is 1 of 18,, so that must make mine at least 10k right ?

Re: $30,000 Reb Beach model on Ebay

I think Euphor is right, it's probably more likely just to flag up the fact that one is available and the seller is looking for interest. The easiest way to garner interest is to have it sit at the top of the eBay "highest priced" list for ibanez guitars... We're all talking about it now aren't we

But, yeah if you follow this sellers logic and base this on rarity and loudness of the finish, some j customs should have the line 'or swap for vintage Ferrari' in their auction texts

All it needs to do is to get the attention of this guy: http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f28/wa...er-110958.html

Who has big money to spend and been chasing one for a while.

Probably true, but 100% of people interested in Ibanez from late 80's - early 90's know who he is. They should know, at least.

The fact that he doesn't have BEST OFFER as a feature in his listing, tells me he really believes its worth 30k

He'd probably need to be selling 10 or 15 of those to get that kinda money. Rich spotted this one a few days ago.

Maybe I'm giving the poor guy the benefit of the doubt, but I still think he's relying on the the "contact seller" button and a deal outside of the bay.

He can't really think it's worth 30K can he?!?!?

can he???


can he???

Oh my stars and garters, i think you might be right!!!

Re: $30,000 Reb Beach model on Ebay

Pretty rare and very cool guitar. My only concern besides the price is why does it come with a gig bag. Seriously! Should have a hard case or is the bag "original"?
