I'm looking to trade a 2013 Gibson Sg for an Ibanez Prestige RGT3020FM, the thing is I can't find much information on the Ibanez since its an older model, if anyone can provide any info I'd greatly apreciate it. I also want to know if this trade would be wise economically, I can't find any Ibanez for sale that is similar to the one I want to trade for so I'm unsure of its price. Thanks in advance!

They should be pretty similar value, I think. The RGT is worth about $700, mostly due to the rarity.

depends on which SG we're talking about. the Pestige series ibanez's are pretty solid guitars all the way around so i kinda doubt you'd lose out on the deal.

Really? The guy I'm negotiating with is advertising it for $1300

I prefer Gibsons to Ibanezes in general

You've always gotta ask yourself, "If I'm the other guy, why am I interested in doing this trade?"


And assume he didn't get a single digit score on his last IQ test.

You're welcome

IF I were you, I would only do the trade if you prefer the Ibanez to your Gibson.
If it was just me, I wouldn't have a Gibson SG in the first place
Go and play it, no one should demand to do a trade without trying out.
My friend just got a guitar sent to him and he could try it out, before sending out his guitar he had up for a trade.
I know, I know.. sometimes you can't trust people, but well, I would never steal a guitar.

Well then at least we know he's a ****. It probably cost around that much new though.

Thanks a ton! I can't try the guitar out because the guy lives on the other side of the country

doing a trade or a guitar that you can't play and check out just seems like a bad idea. not sure how you planned on doing the deal but there seems to be some trust involved and i dunno if it'd be that trusting.

Never trade if it's not in person.

the answer i always say to someone when they ask if they should do a trade...

if you have to ask others if you should do the trade then that means you dont really wanna trade and are looking for someone to talk you into the trade... if you really wanted to do the trade you would not have to ask anyone if you should....

Maybe he is trying to find out if he is really on the rough side of the deal? I'd say he is.
