    My advice.. don't listen to anyone's advice here.. I last asked about an Ibanez and was told it was absolutely not worth more than $200 that it was likely worth $100ish or so.. I sold it for $300 + $45 shipping a few days later... put that shit up on ebay, list it with clear pictures from different angles, give as much information on it and either put it up for bidding or buy it now with "or best offer" .. ebay charges only 3.5% for their final value fee which is the same as reverbs. But I personally like selling on ebay more because the market is way bigger with way more traffic...

    would it hurt to list it with the artist's name in the listing?

    I remember one of Aaron Marshall's .strandberg*s being listed with his name on Reverb and always wondered why most other listers opted to forgo naming the artist

    A lot of artists get guitars on the auspice that it'll be used for promotional purposes. These guitars can be free or highly discounted, and depending on the contracts and agreements between brands, there can be a gray area as to legitimacy of the artist selling the instrument when they did. Not to mention some artists don't want the association of flipping tons of free/discounted gear.

    A lot of it is just being overly cautious, but that's the reasoning behind it.

    I dunno. I think if someone values something at $200 and it sells for $300, that’s the same in my book. I’d consider that accurate.

    When it's a guitar on the lower end an $100 difference is pretty big

    Hey, there's a sucker born every minute. :lol:

    I mean, they'd have to be to buy a 15+ year old used production guitar that only sold for $400 delivered for nearly $350.

    But that's the "x-factor" when selling. Maybe you'll luck into finding that perfect mark of a buyer who just wants something and doesn't really care. Maybe you won't. Which is why it's best to price high, but be realistic on value.

    They had their moments. "you got a henna tattoo that said forever" is still one of the hardest hitting tracks I have ever heard

    Protoman and A Gift A Curse were definitely also bangers. NONE of their old stuff even comes close to Look at Yourself though; the new lineup is perfect.

    So bad. Hard to believe Josh Travis could stomach being in the band, as his future looked so bright after his work on Tony Danza.

    I'm sure Josh was happy to make some $ actually playing music. Sometimes, that matters too.

    It’s worth what you can sell it for. Seriously I would start high and see what happens.

    Our tours crossed paths a couple times. In Quebec this dude had a beautiful guitar (that i believe was given to him by Ibanez) that he wasn’t playing because he said the neck would bounce around and it had a bunch of stability issues. He was concerned that the pocket was too big. I only bring that up because he was playing 7321 iirc that he’d refinished in white with his dad.

    I say this because he seemed to value function over fashion for sure.

    I would say I agree.

    The neck is not held in place by the neck pocket, but rather the screws. If the screws are tightened, then the neck should not be moving in the pocket regardless of any extra gaps or space.

    This is indeed correct. The best way to identify a good neck joint for a bolt-on is to take the neck and press it against your chest like you are trying to move it while using the body as leverage. You need to do this both directions. If it makes a "creek" type noise, or even worse, it very noticeably moves, it has problems. It could just be the screws are loose, or the joint is just badly done.
