Fellow guitarist. I need your opinions if you would sell this guitar if you were in my place.. The issue is not the guitar itself but the story of how we meet.. Basically I've been an Ibanez fanboy ever since I started playing, a long time ago. But right now Ibanez aren't the type of instrument I should be playing, not my style anymore, I'm not trying to be a shredder these days. I've been wanting to buy either a Gibson SG or a ESP E-II Eclipse, leaning toward the ESP. Now the issue, I would need to sell one of my guitars to come up with the funds. I have two guitars, a 1991 Ibanez RG 550 that I'd never sell!! And a 2006 Ibanez RG Presting 2550 upgraded with Dimazrio PAF pickups. Now my thoughts are sell the prestige to get close to 1000$ for it, come up with the rest and get the ESP. On paper it makes sense, but I'll explain how I purchased this guitar and tell me, could you sell this guitar? In 2005 I started playing guitar again after taking a good 3-4 year break, life was to busy at the time, re learned alot and decided to get a "real" Japanese guitar. I had the Ibanez 2006 catalog home and must have spent months analyzing each guitar, making pros and cons list until I finally decided I wanted the RG Prestige 2550. I wasn't really an online shopper at the time so I was relying on my local guitar store (Long Mcquade in Ottawa). I walk into the store and of course they only have a few Ibanez, none are Prestige. I ask one of the worker if they could order this RG prestige 2550 for me, the guy was hesitant in saying yes. He explained to me that its complicated to order Ibanez guitars for them, being made in Japan and the relationship they have with the guitar makers it could take up to 6 months for the guitar to arrive and there's a good chance they would never receive it and the order gets cancelled. So I left the store and kinda gave up on getting that guitar. I wasn't sure what I'd do at the time. The next week my girlfriend(now wife) asks me to go for a drive and get some coffee, I say "can we stop at Long Mcquade, I need string", I made a joke that if they had my guitar there I'd buy it right away. I walk in and right in the Ibanez section is the RG Prestige 2550 I wanted!! I was shocked, I pick it up and start playing it. I ask one of the guy who works there "I came here last week, when did this guitar come in?" he looked in the computer and said he had no idea when it came it. weird.. I play it a few minutes and bought it right away. Loved the guitar ever since and I still do, but to make up the funds for an ESP eclipse I'd have to sell a guitar and that one would be the only one out of the two I'd be willing to sell, but I can never bring myself to actually put it up for sale just because of "how we meet".. I think I was "suppose" to have this guitar!! What do you think? Would you sell it for an ESP, or keep it? And sorry for the long post.. Thanks, for reading.
