So the local guitar shop I took my LTD to get setup at has a dark green finished-top Ibanez RGT42FXQM, its got a ding on the underside of the body back toward where the guitar sits above your right hip (when standing).

The original price was $699 and hes asking $420 for it, is this a fair price? Is the RGT42 a good guitar for $700? Would it be a better deal for $420?

If so, is this ding repairable? Its right on the edge of the body, but its gone through the finish and I can see a spot of bare wood maybe an 1/8-1/4 thick.

I know its a minor quibble for saving $280, but Im nit picky about blemishes.

If you're nit picky about blemishes, get that one, and get a new one without any flaws. Then you can play the dinged one, and leave the other one in the box.

Seriously... If you want a guitar to play, get one to play. If you want something that remains eternally perfect, don't play it. You don't have to bash it up intentionally, but dings and chips happen.

They should actually be charging more for a chipped finish, and bill it as bonus anxiety relief. Now that the first scratch is already there, you don't have to be thinking more about protecting it than playing it, and you can actually play it enthusiastically without hesitation or guilt.



lol. Im not *thaaat* bad, I just take care of my guitars. But thanks for the advice, I think I shall have a NGD very soon.

Not trying to bump this thread, although I am...
But I think I have this exact guitar if you haven't gotten rid of it.. Same placement of the dink and same kind of damage...
