    I've got another question! How much for a white RG8 with a Dimarzio DA8 in the bridge, faux black binding, and a custom hardshell case. As far as the hardshell case, I bought a hardshell bass case, cut foam to snugly fit the body and headstock and covered the foam with crushed velvet. It's pretty snazzy! The guitar is like new. I've only owned it for 2 months and it's never left my house. Oh, and the DA8 has the mojo tone cover, so it matches the neck pickup.

    Maybe around $400 shipped. Once again, you can grab these new, with coupon, for something like $350. The new pickup and HSC are what'll make folks jump on it.

    -Keep the old pickups if you swap them. Since they add so little to the price you can sell the guitar for, before you sell it you'll have the original pups to put in. In which case you can just sell the pickups afterwards for even more cash, or install them on your new guitar! :lol:

    -Whenever you buy a new addition to your setup, just always expect to lose a lot of money on it. Plain and as simple as that.

    Unfortunately, not a whole lot. A brand new one can be scored for under $800 if you have a coupon code for GC/MF, and even they are pushing used ones for about $550, and that's with their [GC/MF's] limited warranty against major defects, which is always nice to have on cheaper guitars.

    I'd say, shoot for $500, but don't be surprised if you get talked down a little, or have to eat shipping. I've seen ones with upgraded pickups go for around $600 on here, sometimes with hardshell case or gigbag.

    Well I paid $500.00 for it after scoring a Halo Octavia 8 for my son for $860.00 on Ebay. (it was a second with microscopic flaws) The RGA is pristine. I wanted to test the ERG waters... I'm hooked.... Think I'll replace pickups but keep the stock ones around so I can put it back stock.

    Thanks for the info.

    How much for a 1998 PRS McCarthy in really great condition? Dots instead of bird inlays.

    Looks like it's in decent shape, so around $400 on the high side, as they aren't as common. Try for $300 though.

    Anyone knows the price of this 2005 MIK Ibanez SA260FM TG? It's in excellent condition, newly refreted and set up. I counted around 2 dings and light pick scratches. It has some mods as well, bone nut, Dimarzio Cruisers, Entwistles Darkstars.

    How much would a used JP50 go for? It has one ding on the front but is in otherwise great condition.

    These were only $400 new, and nearly mint used ones (without mods) are going for about half that.

    I wouldn't pay more then $280, but if you remove the pickups and sell those separately you'll probably do a little better.

    You can grab the newer JP60 model for as little as $380 on MF, and they give you a warranty. Based on that, I think it would be hard to get anything more than $350, and that's the higher side.

    That's fantastic actually. I'm going to give selling it on eBay a go before bringing it to a music store near here. I'm really only expecting to catch $250-$300.
