I'm in Chicago, and have dealt with literally countless dudes here, Leon, Drew, unfortunately Shawn, Boots, etc.
I LOVE this guitar. But the arrival of my 1527M has made this a case queen, and I played it daily before, and it's lucky to get weekly play, now. It's the only guitar I haven't sold in 2-3 years, so I think that really says something about the guitar.
Only thing wrong with it is holes next to the pickup rings, that are so hidden you can't even see them when you play. The headstock and neck are PRISTINE, the body has a couple dents where your pocket has the little change holders, but nothing that breaks the finish.
EVO(b)/Dud single lowered all the way/Gravity Storm neck. Pole pieces are mismatched, thank DMZ/Guitar Center. Whatever. Sounds fantastic. The volume knob does nothing, the tone knob is now the volume knob, and it's wired as a standard 5 way otherwise.
Really only looking for Ibaņez Prestige. Maybe a good Jackson, but try me.
Also: to trade, you HAVE to have rep, or be a regular. Looking for RG3250's, 1527's, fractal MFC, or $700 cash. If you have something of more value, I can add cash...
I love my s2170 and would not dream of selling/trading it!!!!
But, I do have a question for you. The parts that holds the whammy bar on the trem, did those ever fail on you? I had mine repair several times but they could never get it back to the original design and i gave up trying to get it back to normal.
