    Traded my Pod HD Pro X and Pod X3 Pro for this RG770DX. There's a bad ding on the back but everything else is in excellent condition. The frets have absolutely no wear and tremolo is pristine. I've never played a neck this thin too. I love it.

    Tuned to Drop F using the bottom 6 strings of DAddario 10/74:

    These always looked so sick. Nice grab. Clear pickguard is pretty sweet.

    EDIT: post #1337!

    Thanks! Any idea how much these go for now? I notice on Reverb theyre listed for $1700 but that seems way too high. I noticed they went for $700 even in 2015

    With regards to the ‘djent’ tone, I am fairly sure that the F2 is designed to have the opposite eq to what a djent pickup would have, I keep mine in E standard tuning and would definitely consider a pickup swap if I wanted to djent with it.

    I would’ve guessed that price actually. I’ve seen them go for that when they pop up but I haven’t seen any pop up as much lately. Hard saying but I would imagine 1500-1900 range?
