    Looking at Gibson R8's

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
