Re: Is Ibanez RG440V a good guitar ?

I like that it's classic black with a white pickguard and pickups and HSS. And at that price it seems a nice way to check out a synchroniZR. I've heard mixed stories about it. I'd like to try it though.
The only guitar with it in the USA is the Marco Sfogli, which I've also been jonesing for - but that's significantly more expensive.

Yes the black one with the SynchonyZR I think the bridge is good but I don't know about the guitar. Is it decent or not

I would say $300 is too much for that model. $200 is about right, but you could do better with a Japanese made one. Used you can pick one up for a bit more coin. I don't know what the market is like where you are, but where I live, it's a buyer's market, so shop about.

Very true! Yeah, unless it's NOS then $200 is about right.

I think they were $400 new like any RG350/450. Yeah, I would, new.

sepulchrave It's a basic Indonesian RG, stock pickups are Infinity's, not my favourite. Three hundred feels excessive for such a basic instrument second hand.
You could get an immaculate Korean or even a decent Japanese RG for that price.
