    Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar: Ibanez Apex II

    Up for sale is my Ibanez Apex II in Green Forest Shadow with Blackouts installed. Got this from Phil around mid-April and it's a fine player, but alas - green guitars aren't my thing, nor are active pickups so I never find myself reaching for it. Plays fine and is in damn near - if not actually - perfect condition. Bought some strings for it last week just to change the ones that came on it but haven't installed them yet so I'll throw them in the case. Tonally this thing should be a monster since it's a mahogany body with Duncan Blackouts but since I have no amp, I'm no authority on the matter, I just call it like I see it.

    Modifications (if any): Blackouts
    Accessories (hardshell case etc): Hardshell case, DiMarzio cliplock strap, string winder, Ernie Ball Regular Slinky 7's
    Location (City,State or City,Country): MA/NH border
    International OK? : No
    Contact Info (No Phone #s) PMs brah
    References (eBay or other forum userid): iTrader should suffice
    Price (include currency and if firm/obo): $700 SHIPPED. NO TRADES

    Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar: Pre-refined Parker Fly

    Pre-refined Parker Fly that's been refinished in a nice sleek white finish. Some mild paint damage by the bridge that's fully evident with another chip slightly below it and one on the upper horn but that's it so I'd say this is closer to "player condition" even though it's not much. During the refinish it WAS stripped of it's Parker headstock decal BUT you can clearly see that it was there as well as the serial number confirming it to be a legit Parker and well fuck - these things are impossible to fake :lol: Pickups are Dimarzio PAFs I believe as they come stock but are unlabeled. Also, side-dots are NOT on the guitar as they were painted over during the refinish so KEEP THAT IN MIND. I've been planning on buying side-dot stickers but never got around to it.
    Modifications (if any): Refinished to white so no headstock decal/side markers

    Accessories (hardshell case etc): Gigbag
    Location (City,State or City,Country): MA/NH border
    International OK? : No
    Contact Info (No Phone #s) PM
    References (eBay or other forum userid): iTrader
    Price (include currency and if firm/obo): I'm not sure where to start this since it's technically a Parker but in player condition, so maybe $1050 SHIPPED? GC's prices on used Parkers is way higher than this but there in better shape too so I'm comfortable with this. NO TRADES

    Controls - [​IMG]
    Body - [​IMG]
    Bridge - [​IMG]
    Longer body shot - [​IMG]
    Headstock - [​IMG]

    Prices are ...negotiable but I'm not going to be going much lower than this. NO TRADES on ANY of them as the cash from these will be put towards a Prestige 7 so unless that's your offer in near mint, don't bother.

    Might be willing to trade the Apex II for a modded 7620/7621s - Royal Blue's get first preference as well as naturally finish ones, not into the Vampire Kiss finish and black is a fifty-fifty shot

    Parker is still for straight sale

    After thinking about it, I'd also be willing to trade the Parker for an S Prestige. S5470 would be FANTASTIC, but I'll look at what you've got.

    Gonna knock this one down to $600 shipped, which will PROBABLY equal out to $550 for the guitar itself since the shipping cost more when it's got a hardshell case with it
