I absolutely love this guitar, and have kept it around for a while. Santolla sold the guitar around 1999 to a Russian ibanez collector, the collector sold it for 5 figures to someone in Los Angeles, and I picked it up from him. The market isn't nearly as strong these days. I'm asking considerably less than the $12,000 the previous owner paid. Paypal: $2800 shipped in the US. Must have good feedback. If you can do local pickup I will work with you on the price. TRADES: will consider axe fx ultra plus cash or random trades plus cash, with the majority of the trade being cash.
