Someone (not me) got an amazing deal, a MIJ JS (1000?) for $305:

http://www.instrumentexchange.com/bid-form.asp?list_id=801842&pid=41&catid=131&scatid=496&status=3

Or maybe they'll be in for a surprise when they open the package and find that they bought an RG after all...

This might just be a case of the seller uploading the wrong pics, but every so often you see something similar to this on instrument-exchange, where the seller has no clue as to what they're selling. So far I've seen an RG570 with a buy-now price of $150, and a few other decent deals.

I don't even know why I look at this stuff, seeing as how I've got enough guitars right now anyways. It's some kind of compulsion...

They had auctioned this on ****, and I sent them a question asking if it was the guitar pictured, or the one described, because they were obviously different. I never got a reply, so I stayed away, although that's not a bad deal for a 570, either, but I didn't need one of those.

Instrument Exchange I believe is run by GC. They are so absurdly wrong half the time, it's amazing they sell anything at all.

They had an "RG7631" for sale with an F serial (MIJ) with a description saying it was MIK and listing it for $569. It's been up there for about 2 months now.

I e-mailed them politely correcting them that it's neither a 7631 nor is it MIK, but they never responded, nor did they change the listing.

Yes, it's hosted and run by GC, but there are independent sellers on there as well. And yes, some of the time their listings are incredibly wrong.

If you're brave you can sometimes get a good deal, though. I bought a Boss DS-1 that was listed without a picture or a description for $25. Much to my surprise, it was in perfect condition, and came with a battery AND the AC adapter. Not too shabby.

guitar center people are such big morons that they rock. i got my JCM800 2203 reissue head (unused) for 850$. they have a policy that if an item is in the store and it is on auction and if a person buys it from the store 24hr before the auction ends has the right to own it. so, the bid had reached 1050$ and there were still 2-3 days left. I simply called and bought it for the starting bid price. it was Arlington, TX guitar center and I am in Rochester, NY. Hope this story helps u in getting better gear for lower price. Shop on fellow Gearwhores ! \m/
