    Thank you. I think I like the first one I posted. $200 with case and Dimarzio Titans seems like a pretty good deal. It's been up for a few months. Once the lock down is lifted, I want to go snag it. :)

    I don't mind the hardtail. I prefer it. It'll be a great bod for a wrap. :)

    I purchased this same model used ('02), back in 2018. Couldn't afford a Les Paul Standard so I upgraded it to my specs. It was a great instrument, but now it is an exceptional guitar with a fresh look, quality sound components and even more TLC to the neck.

    The old Korean (and if you really score, the Japanese) made Ibanez of the 90s are often found for sale for next to nothing given what they offer, people just see them as old guitars that've grown out of fashion, but not old enough to be considered vintage/collectible. You find them for less than the much inferior Gio models, for instance.

    Things to look out for when buying these retro guitars are popping Floyd Rose bridge poles, the tension of the strings being applied for decades onto the soft basswood bodies will cause the posts to push the wood and enlarge the holes just enough. There are some easy DIY repairs for this, such has putting a strip of newspaper around the post, putting wood glue in the holes and pushing it in, epoxy them in or simply attaching them with superglue; it's still worth checking for these and other issues of an old, used guitar, with many years of playing over it, but often never looked over and maintained by a tech.

    That pretty much means the guitar and case cost $50. Now I want it even more.

    Do you think it's safe to go pick it up?

    Wear a mask and gloves, go by yourself. Have a place ready to quarantine the guitar when you get it back home. Shower and clean your clothes upon entering your house.

    You should be fine.

    Seller and I will meet when this pandemic is over. He said it was available but couldn't meet up. So I'll grab it when the madness ends. :)

    I'm gonna do it. But seller doesn't want to meet up until the pandemic is over. So we'll meet up when this thing is over. :)

    My memory might be a little foggy but this reminds me of Marty McFlys guitar from back to the future. Not the 335 he played at the dance but the Ibanez he played during his audition. Always liked these.

    The Marty’s guitar is a RS 430 with single coils, the RG 530 is with humbucker and split coils.
