Pass on it. You can find better. Or have him drop the price to $250-$300

Ooops. should have mentioned that the 400$ price is for the guitar shipped/import charge paid. Price is 259$US atm
#4
is it $400 CAD or USD? i would not pay $400USD for it, even if that includes customs, shipping, etc.

$400CAD all said and done wouldn't be terrible.

i should have added this.

cheap floyds are cheap. junk. the knife edges wear fast and it won't stay in tune in time.

also those pickups aren't that great either.

but if you like it, then buy it.

I wouldn't jump at the first thing you see. There are much better guitars out there, used gets you better guitar than a new one.

Personally I would look for a hardtail (non-trem) model. also pickup swaps are a very common thing, i have probably a dozen guitars that i have changed the pickups/electronics in.

I would go non-trem, if you can get a non-trem model for 400CAD, I would consider it.

Hmmm.... The price is alright I guess, even though in reality this model is just a tad bit more than a JS KV and not comparable to today's X Series. How much is the JS in Canada? But I'm not crazy about the Indian Jacksons anyway. And note that if it's the one on Ebay it doesn't come with a case but just the gig bag.

I would save up and look for a KVXMG. Used ones shouldn't cost too much. Or even better, for the price of a new KVXMG you can get a "no repairs made refurbished" or "customer return" KVMG, there's tons of them out there.

I own a Kvx10 hard tail and just recently bought a Kvmg and the build quality alone is a huge difference. The Kvx10s aren't bad but I wish I would have done it right the first time with the KVMG or even KVXMG.
