I have had a hard time moving my classic vibe tele recently. I was offered a ibanez talman TC825 today for it and it has a few minor issues. First off it has a neck pocket crack that the owner said hasn't spread for the 5 years he owned it. The next issue is that the finish on the back of the neck has been sanded off, I don't know how this affects the value of that guitar but I wouldn't think it would do anything but decrease it, but I don't know by how much. Last thing he said is that the silver sparkle has turned into a champagne color and there is a small chip in the finish where you can see the color difference. Anyways I looked at the value of what these sold for on reverb and they went from $400-700. The $400 one had a neck pocket crack but no sanded neck, the other ones on the higher end had no issues and a hardshell case. I'm pretty tempted to grab it just for the hell of it, and I'm pretty sure if I wanted to get rid of it that it would be an easy sell for $275 compared to my classic vibe that I am trying to sell for the same price... am I right? What would you guys do, trade it or pass?
