UG, I come to you in my time of indecision.

While surfing craigslist, I found an add for a Jackson RR3 Pro Series. The man is selling the guitar, including a hardshell case (that he claims cost him $130), for $350, asking price (but I've got a bit o' the irish in me, it's not REALLY $350 )

My question, what does UG think of this price for this guitar? (this is before seeing it btw) He had it listed about 2 weeks ago for $400, too.

My dilemma - I don't know if I want to buy it, but if it's a (very) good deal, I may be inclined to buy it. Also, my Carvin DC400 should be coming soon, and i dropped like $1400 on that sucker, and about a month ago I bought my 4501.

The article says...

Selling for $350 firm
broke a string the other day and replaced it quickly , tremolo needs some adjustment and I dont have to time to do it. Slight fret buzz until its readjusted
will throw in cable if wanted

I was kinda thinking that too.

an awesome price, but im too picky and i would only but if it was black or white

I was actually thinking of that too. I'm not a fan of the dark blue, but I could (technically) take off everything (it's a bolt-on neck) and give 'er a paintjob.

not really though, epiphones are horrible. only very few are decent. All of them need work. My epiphone's frets were un even, there's a bump or two on the back of the neck.

^I'd let a pro look at it. Once you get into the technicalities of screws...well, it's just a place you don't want to be, friend.
