    I'll be an interested taker as well if no one bites! I have one already and have been looking for a second one for a while.

    I dont know what it is about these X-series prestiges, it seems like almost every single one on the used market was treated like absolute shit from their previous owners. I have both an RG2027X and a RG2020X both with mysterious cosmetic damage.

    I have one, I bought it the first year it came out. The finish is EXTREMELY thin and brittle on mine. It's chipped in ways that none of my other Ibanez have. Things like cables, Dimarzio strap locks, normal things, all caused chips.

    I really like that guitar. Why do you say two of them were lemons though?

    I had an RG1820X that I passed on to my brother. The finish was so thin that I think the case damaged it.

    Great guitars though. I took mine for a plek job and the guy told me after it was done that he was impressed at how little the machine had to do.

    I have an S2020xav I bought new off the shelf and can vouch, the finish on those can't be looked at sternly without chipping.

    I'd love to have one of it's 7 string brethren.

    Congrats OP
