    What's a good used price range to look for? I havn't been keep up with the market. I don't have any interest in giving the $3000 or more alot seem to be asking on Fleabay.

      I'll pass if I can't find a used one for cheaper than that price range. With the way the selling market is now I figured they were going cheaper than that. I know 6 months or so ago you could find them for around $2000 fairly often.

        gibson have kept their prices up in the used market. PRS used is a great deal but gibbys don't seem to lose much value.

          yeah they make some stunning guitars though , in the price range some real lookers . I'd be afraid to take it out of the house though.

            Plaintops might be found for $2250, anything with flame will cost you $2800 at least.



            Why R8? I gigged one for a bit, neck is really thick on those, too big for me. R7s are the same axe, cheaper though.

              I actually love the necks on the R8's. Not really interested in another flame top guitar. I prefer the plain tops on Gibson Les Pauls.

                I loved it too, but it got to be too much on long gigs. Killed me to sell it, I spent a lot of time getting it sounding good, it was beauty too.

                    Yeah, I saw that one. It does look good and actually the color I love but no pickguard, unknown pickups, USA case over Historic case, no COA. Those things are minor to me personally but they do make a resell value difference IMO if I ever looked to sell down the road.

                        must be said; check out an Agile.







                        they are sweet, but I feel like other models are more worth it.

                          Nothing wrong with Agiles. Just not what I'm looking for right now.
