    RG550/570, $750? RG750/770 $1000?!?

    Am I missing something or is there some massive price rise on old 80s RGs? I've been buying them for like $400-$500 over the last 2 years and I'm now seeing beat to shit 550s being listed for $750 and there's even 750s and 770s listed for $1000 and they're not in mint condition.

    Although there is one funny prick listing a 90 RG770 in Lazer Blue for $2500.

    Thinking it's time to unload some RGs.

    those 770 are pretty dope, i love the blue ones. If i ever buy another Ibanez before selling one of mine, it will be a jem though, or a pimped out Iceman.

    Here in the UK they're all over the place. You'll see them go for 350, then the next week 5-600, it all depends on condition and people's willingness to pay on the day I suppose.

    People ask what ever they want but I don't see a lot of the sell unless there mint.

    300% profit on my 750? Tempting, but no. That's street price from when they were new....

    Just because some are selling for those values doesn't mean others will buy them

    Offer what you think its fair and see that they will say no and a couple of weeks later they will reply saying they though about it and now they will accept, then offer less than first time
