Got an offer to buy this for $400 today. Is it worth it?
Too much really, it looks like it's in really bad shape. I'd say 250 max.
IF the frets are good try counter offering 300 due to the toxic nature of that bridge. (seriously, do NOT even play it for long before cleaning that tragedy, lest you wanna go for a tetanus shot.)
The axe itself can be made awesome, but you'll need to put a lot of work into it....account that into the price.
Like, I dont know how prices are in India, but you can find these here in A LOT better condition for around 400-550, so yeah....I'd pay 300 for it, but honestly....not 400.
I was worried that I was lowballing at 300 hahah. Yeah...250-300 max.
Rg7620s are very rare here.
I am saying as I haven't seen another except mine.
One I have was bought for $600 and then refinished.
Meanwhile, I offered $200. lets see.
Good luck man! Let us know how it turns out, and don't forget to show us the finished product if ya get it and fix it up.
Fixed for $350 shipped. (Basically $250+$100 shipping as the seller wouldn't take neck off)
Will post once I receive and clean it.
Good luck with the bridge - hopefully it will clean up well
Looks like the screws for the nut are missing...
Dunno what bugs me more, the reverse-stringed low E or the 10 layers of strings on the low B
This is not worth much given the beat it has received IMO
Received it today...
Finish is chipped, but it doesn't matter to me.
Bridge had a little rust but got rid of it in just 10 mins.
Everything else is pretty great. Neck is arrow straight and frets are perfectly fine.
Holds tune and sounds very good. Have to say didn't expect such good stock pickups....
It sure does! Makes me think that the original owner replaced the nut with one that is top mounted.
This would mean that there are now two extra screw holes in the same area that already has two screw holes that go directly through the neck.
I would be careful if that is the cased. I would replaced the nut, and fill in the screw holes that were added. Extra holes under the nut is not good on a bottom mounted nut, IMO.
I second this. Pretty easy DIY job.
Doesn't look that bad from afar and you probably wouldn't notice the chips when playing. At least that is how it is for me.
May I ask how much did you pay for this? Also happy NGD! It has potential to be a good guitar
I paid a total of $390 including shipping and custom duties.
Actually the neck doesn't have any extra holes. Probably the nut was not mounted from the top either. It was simply kept on the neck and strings were locked to a floating nut.
Right now I am using a Floyd rose locking nut.
Guitar plays really good. Some problems in electronics has made the tone knob another volume knob but nothing that bothers me much.
