I bought this guitar a few months ago, but I will be going to university to study music in a few moths and I need a much more versatile guitar. I'll be sad to see her go but what can you do? The guitar is as new, no scratches or dents whatsoever. I did change the neck EMG 81 for an 85 though, you can have the old 81 if you want too. The guitar was £799 new, and it still is so I expect fair offers! The guitar plays fantastically and is surprisingly light for a mahogany V. Excellent harmonics and a really comfortable neck, you'd barely know you were holding it. Here are a few pics, I can take more if you want to see any specific area in detail.

I don't think I'll be able to afford that for a while yet, but is it a painted neck? They are a HUGE turn-off as far as I'm concerned.

Hey man, if you don't mind, would you post some pictures of the neck profile and stuff? I want to see what it's like when it comes to fret access.
you will fight death as you slowly realize...

Yes it's a painted neck, you'd be lucky to get an unfinished set neck for under a grand I'd think.

The upper fret access is better than it looks, I have average size hands and I can easily reach the 24th fret without stretching.

Fair enough. Just checking, I'd be saving up if it were unfinished

Well I couldn't possibly take less than £550, since it's only about 4 months old and in perfect condition.

It depends what you're gonna offer. As I said in my first post, I'm looking for a very versatile guitar, and I need 24 frets, an unfinished neck and as many pickups as possible lol.

lol well said.
Only thing I could possibly offer for trade is my beloved RG250EX, blocked the trem, installed DiMarzio's (SuperDistortion in the bridge, HS-2 in the middle, Breed in the neck). Set up beautifully, will have it set up and intonated for any tuning wished, with trem blocked/unblocked. The neck and bridge pickups are coil tapped so you can go from pretty chunky lead tones, to sparkling cleans to crushing rhythm tones.

Thats probably all I could trade, unless you want a beat up old Washburn, a shine 7 string or an ESP F-50.

EDIT: a bit confused with the guitar...
Neck says 250...But it's a 350...
Must inquire to Ibanez about that...

I don't think I could accept that guitar, I have a vendetta against trems. I've had two guitars with them and they would never stay in tune. I would really feel more comfortable with cold hard cash tbh.

You wont get a free EMG 81 from Thomann, and the guitar has been professionally set up since I got it which cost another £30 at Sound Control. Technically it's in "Better than New" condition.

lol OK pal chill out.

I see your point with the EMG, thats fair enough, but I cant justify me paying the same price for a second hand guitar, and that might be just me.

No hard feelings, good luck selling.

i want that so bad, but i wish you were in the USA.

heres a bump, good luck

Um, I have no idea how much insured shipping to Ireland would cost. If it's under £20 then I might include it but it probably wont be. The guitar doesn't come with a case, no.

Would you consider a sell to the US? I know shipping would be high, and whats the currency conversion to USD? Sanding that neck down to wood is no problem, I like unfinished necks too.

The conversion is aboot 2 dollars to the pound, so work out an offer based around that and we'll use xe.com to figure it out exactly
