I have my Mock up for sale on a classifieds site, and a guy has offered his Japanese made Ibanez 540R in exchange for it. I know that the Mock Special is valued at about $500-700, but haven't been able to find a value for the 540R. Does anybody think this would be a fair trade? I like Japanese Ibanez's, and have been interested in trying a tremolo, and the original Edge it has seems good according to what I've read.

Here's a picture of it.

While I wasn't able to find that exact finish, I found them on eBay that have sold anywhere for $300 up to $700. (most common price was about $450) If you're looking at it from an investment standpoint, it seems like a fair trade to me given what you said you paid for your current guitar.

mockingbird special x?

if so... i haven't tried that one (nor that exact ibanez, but i've tried a fair few MIJ ibanezes), but i'm guessing the ibanez is probably the better guitar. What the things are worth is a whole other thing, though (I have no idea about that), and obviously you need to check the ibanez is legit, in good condition, etc. etc.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Et tu, br00tz?
An old school 80's Ibanez in good shape? I'd say around $600+.

You don't see the Radius series much anymore. I'd take that baby and never look back. Killer guitars.

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.
