It cost me $500 canadian...about $325 american. It was used. It is an Ibanez SR1000 with some EMG pickups on it. Nice sound, ultra low action though, really good for finger tapping. I dunno, I think it was a good buy, though I didnt know they made SR1000's....my friend told me they stopped makinng them, so I have two questions 1. Do you think it was a good buy and 2. Do you know why they stopped making them?
