    Kevin bond question

    Howdy, I've got a question for all y'all knowledgeable folks. This pawnshop near my house has had a jackson Kevin bond rhoads hanging on the wall a few years, specifically since I bought my schecter c-1xxx bout 3-4 year ago. I'm thinking about trying to snag it if I can get it for the right price. I just don't know much about the guitar except that it's got a seymour duncan Iommi humbucker and a fine tune tail piece.
    My question is this. Does anybody know more about these? (Where they were made, material, what they're generally worth?)
    I'd greatly appreciate any input, and ifin' I put this in the wrong place I apologize.

    They're very similar to the RR24 models out around the same time except the Bond model is all mahogany. If uou want a straight up metal machine they're pretty cool. Price wise, $500 in good condition is kinda average for a used one. If you can score it cheaper then all the better. They have quality hardware and I've heard that Iommi pickup is insane. If it's anything like his Gibson signature pickups I'll be impressed.

    They're Japanese-made, and if you can snag it for a good price, I'd say go for it.

    Thanks all, I've been thinking about snatching it for a while because I've always wanted to play with that iommi pup. I'm still amazed that they still have it hanging I the shop after all these years, even after they posted it on craigslist as a jackson custom. Maybe it's the inlays that keep it hanging on the wall, arkansas ain't exactly a metal state.

    The longer it's been there, the more desperate they'll be to sell it, so haggle it down!

    It's worth 500-600$ easy. Great guitars. Anything higher end MIJ with ebony and Neck through from that era is great (SLSMGs, etc.).

    The green bevel ones go for more than the red bevel ones.

    I had one for a bit, it was ok, the frets all lifted out of the board as is tradition in this part of the world, so I got a refund. I didn't like the pickup at all.
