This isn't a 'for sale' post but a question about an **** ad I saw awhile back. I have a mint, 1988, no fret wear, with two 1/8" chips on the back edge and the reddest, biggest pored rosewood fretboard I have ever seen. Down side is it doesn't have the pink lined Ibanez case but a black lined one and at ultra high gain the pickups are slightly microphonic. Aside from this the guitar is a 9.8 out of 10 condition. I saw one of these go awhile back on **** for around $2200.00 I believe in worse shape than mine but it had the original case and who knows about the pickups. Is the '88 rootbeer worth that much? If so, I might be unloading for some Christmas cash... anyone know the value of this piece?
