Is the offer I'm looking at worth it?

Hello dear fellow UG'ers!

I've recently been approached by a friend who knows I want a 7 string guitar. His friend is selling one! And because I'm not entirely sure if it's worth it, I thought I'd ask you people!

It's an Ibanez RG7321FM (awyea nice red-ish color). It has no dents or dings orrr chips, only minor wear on the bridge (it's the non-gibraltar fixed bridge one). Also, and this is where it gets interesting for me, it's got a DiMarzio D-Sonic in the bridge position! Neck's unchanged but supposedly fine for leads.

So he's selling it for about 400 euros (not entirely sure yet), which is around $550. It's from 2009, hardly been played, just had a service round at a guitar shop, and it's well maintained. He plays metal with it and so would I (lots of metal types), and I'm thinking the DiMarzio is pretty good for it (and he says it is too).

tl;dr: RG7321FM, well-maintained, no real damage except wear from usage, DiMarzio D-Sonic in bridge position. Worth it for ~$550?

Also, by the way: no idea if it's relevant in this case, but needa know my amp/sound processing gear too?

Sorry for the long post, just trying to be complete

Thanks and bye! ;D

I just googled it and saw one online for $500 new. Are they discontinued? They don't seem to be in any major guitar store. I'd do some research and find out how much they normally go for first.

Well the thing is I can't find any here in the Netherlands, and they seem to go for about that price in the US indeed, but shipping would make it a lot more expensive. Plus it has a DiMarzio in it...

Also no, I haven't had any succes finding an RG7420/7620, used guitars, especially 7 strings, are way too rare here D:

Sounds roughly right - if you want it make it yours.

Have you gotten to try it out yet? I'd always do that before I buy something. But it seems like thats not too unreasonable of a price, given that its in good condition and they're hard to come by.

Haha yeah I might be able to get a gig bag (prolly no hardshell case) and a strap with it for that price, so I'm really considering it!

I'd say it is kind of pricey, I'm sure you could try and haggle a little bit. It's not that I don't understand your situation, I actually do, guitars here are more expensive than in the US too, but that seems a little bit too much.

Yeah I thought so too, even though it has a dimarzio in it... it's undergoing service right now though so it'd be all set up as well, which counts for something too...

That's basically what they retailed for I believe. My buddy is trying to sell his for like $300 though haha. I've been debating with myself if I should try to get it or not.

Well thing is this one has a DiMarzio in it and is very well-maintained and is undergoing a professional setup haha so that'd increase the value. Also they're more expensive here, not around $550 but more like 500/600 euros which is about 700/800 dollars (caused they need to ship it here) and they're discontinued here
