Post pgm301 RELIABILITY
I think I'm gonna go used here, the guitar is in great condition, the player took great care of it.

But has anyone had to deal with warranty??
Since the warranty will be long up, and unusable even if it wasn't, is it still worth it?

Does the warranty really cover that much anyways? is it worth the net difference of $125?

If I got it new, how much of a setup would it need? I'm talking low as possible. Would any good ol' luthier do a fine job?

I've been told that it chips very easily, because of the basswood/finish. True?

Thanks!

The warranty is basicly useless. Here are the terms of coverage straight from the Ibanez website. I woudln't let it be any kind of deciding factor in buying a guitar. --Jason
