    Need to raise some $$ so looking forward to offers.
    In no particular order, except the Ibanez RGs. I'd like to keep one of those. They play and sound very very similar … I just don't need both!

    ----------

    Modifications: Upgrade to Dimarzio (for Ibanez) F2/S1/F4 pickups. Legendary pickups
    Condition: 9.9/10. Almost time capsule condition. No cracks or defects. Maybe the tiniest of wear on some of the hardware?

    The quintessential RG, with the best tremolo (Edge) and pickups, in a condition that you won't find again on a used RG, especially one from the 90s.
    Pre-prestige high-end Fujigen model.

    Gear/Guitar for Sale/Trade: Carvin DC727 in striped Walnut with upgraded BKP pickups
    Additional Accessories (hardshell case etc): Original hardshell case
    Modifications: None

    Price OBO/trade value: trade value ~999

    DC727 with BKP war pigs pickups.
    The pickup route was enlarged for the BKPs by the previous owner, so not a perfect professional job, but still very good, and fairly harmless for the (tung-oiled all over) finish.
    Excellent + condition overall.

    Stainless steel jumbo frets on ebony.

    I love the pattern of matching striped walnut on the neck/body and was quoted 200$ by Carvin/Kiesel to match that on a new build

    Currently has maple cavity and truss rod covers, but I can provide the original ones.

    Not a fancy guitar, but extremely well made Korean 7-string S-style superstrat.
    Has seen very little play as a backup but never failed the handful of times I had to use it.

    Gear/Guitar for Sale/Trade: PRS SC HB II - SingleCut Hollowbody II (front and back figure)
    Additional Accessories (hardshell case etc): Original hardshell case
    Modifications: None
    Condition: 9.9/10.
    Your Location (City,State or City,Country): California
    International OK?: OK if you pay shipping
    Contact Info (No Phone #s): PM me here
    References (eBay or other forum userid): quite a few good deals here + eBay references + carvin forums + TGP
    Price OBO/trade value: trade value ~2600

    PRS SC HB ii in Armando's Amethyst Smokeburst Wrap.
    57/08 pickups (basically…the best).

    Doesn't get any better than this for a modern hollow body.
    This is a full hollow design, without the large wooden support that many such guitars have in the middle of the body.
    Also physically thicker than the double cut SC HB, but obviously still very lightweight, and resists feedback very well considering the design.

    I know many people come up with the line 'this should have been a 10 top', but IMO it really applies here.

    Excellent+/Mint condition.

    Gear/Guitar for Sale/Trade: Vintage '88 PRS Custom 24 with all essential period goodies: small heel, one-piece trem with rare up-route, sweet switch, original T&B pickups, original 'regular' neck profile etc etc. Also a VERY nice quilt top.
    Additional Accessories (hardshell case etc): Gig Bag
    Modifications: None
    Condition: Has some buckle rash and tiny impressions around the edges in a few places on the top.
    Playability is perfect, electronics and hardware are top notch (just a bit of fading on the trem) and frets have very very little to no wear.Your Location (City,State or City,Country): California

    Those Vintage PRSi are getting rare, especially with all the essential features. This one has pretty much all defining features of the era.
    Checkout that top. has a bit of (purely cosmetic) wear, but very very little for its age.

    No thanks.

    The rg570 is sold, so I'm keeping the 480.

    Who wants a nice edwards or vintage prs or very nice viva?
