Ordered an Ibanez RG350DX
 
Okay, so ive just ordered one off eBay for 230.00 and it comes with a hardcase.
Here is why it was cheaper.

' This Guitar is a NEW Factory 2nd ( sold as used ) and has a small hard to see rub thru on top edge .


My Factory 2nd guitars are deemed as such directly from the manufacturer. They have never been previously sold in retail or distributed to a music store. These guitars are marked as 2nd by the manufacturer when they fail to pass final inspection. They usually will have a minor cosmetic finishing flaw that prevents them from being sold as new instruments. These blemishes do not affect the playability of the instruments at all, and otherwise these guitars are brand new instruments.

Apart from the defect listed they are perfect , all the electronics , pickups , tuners and frets etc. are good . Every guitar is checked out by me before shipping. There is no manufactures warranty. Sometimes it is difficult to identify why some of these guitars were marked as seconds.

The advantage of purchasing a factory 2nd or refurbished guitar is the tremendous value. These guitars are often sold at hundreds of dollars less than their 'new' counterparts. You are basically getting a never owned, like-new condition or near-perfect condition guitar for the price of a used instrument'


Can anyone tell me what is actually wrong with it? Having trouble following it

It is a factory second because there is a flaw in the finish.

Well, there's no warranty.. Seems fine though, and you ordered it already, so just wait and see. Happy NGD for when you get it! :D

What does cosmetic mean? haha I'm quite the stupid you see

I K0nijn I 08-26-2012 03:14 PM

Cosmetic = looks.
It might have a dent already, or a chip, or just a spot where the finish is badly applied. Don't worry too much, if the seller is telling the truth, it should play just fine. :-)

Dave_Mc 08-26-2012 03:38 PM

yeah cosmetics are just looks

ethanwhufc 11-24-2012 05:23 PM

Sorry for the really late reply, forgot about this thread!

Yep it arrived, guitar case is really bad (but i dont mind only paid $10 for it haha)
Guitar seems in perfect condition couldn't find the slight mark that was supposed to be on it!
Really, really happy with it :cheers:

You need to do a NGD tread.

But till then HNGD!

AWACS 11-24-2012 09:27 PM

TS, I don't notice anything bad about it in those photos ;) Have fun shredding.

I K0nijn I 11-24-2012 10:11 PM

It looks better than mine did. :P HNGD. :-) They're great beat around guitars in my opinion.
