Hey UG so a friend of mine is selling a 1990, made in japan Ibanez RG770DXLB for only 300 bucks! but the reasoning for that is because there is a crack in the neck which was repaired professionally but not perfectly done and there is chips in the body and different volume and tone knobs.but it does have the ibanez original EDGE tremolo and its stock pickups. it comes with the original hard case, dimarzio strap lock(already installed) and the guitar its self for $300 bucks. the neck was deeply cracked though and some pretty bad chips in the body. so should i get it?
the things i could do is...
buy the guitar then save up for a ibanez jem neck(pyramids) then shave the wood down and make it a original basswood body but that would cost like at least 400 bucks to do but anyways

should i get it?
heres the guitar

Do it and keep it until the neck becomes unusable, that sounds like a steal to me.

Don't know, the links don't work, but even for a vintage Ibanez RG body, pickups and original Edge $300 is an absolute steal; do it before someone else does!

1 - This is a forum, not a chat room; leave it a few days before you bump at least.

2 - The neck looks fine, now buy that guitar before I do!
