I'd offer $2400. It looks to be a nice one. Weight and neck are good in my book. Seems to be a neck shape in line with V1 R0s which is right up my alley.

If you don't hit it I just might!

I'll snipe you both...

Nice looking guitar. I think the pricing advice, above, is solid.

Very interesting to see a reverb seller who isn't smoking crack...

cool deal, thanks for the info. it's crazy to me the prices on a plain top with
nice figuring.

sweetwater has the studio tribute honeyburst with a fairly nice top for $1200,
but it just doesn't quite have the pop as the r0.

Kinda like comparing a Shelby GT500 to a base model 4Cyl Mustang. Yeah they are both Mustangs but one is 'Special' while the other is run of the mill.

The list of differences between the two far outnumber the similarities. :doh:

If it means anything to you, I sold an Aged, 1 of 25 2011 G0 for $3200 a month ago and Reverb took $200 of that. And it took a week to get a buyer.

Paying $2500+ for a run of the mill pre-2009 G0 is rich to me. Everyone is asking that for them these days, but I'm not convinced they are selling for that.

I'd offer $2300 and go from there. I wouldn't pay more than $2450 Total. You've got 2013 and newer flame tops selling for around $3k these days.

It seems like a lot of binding bleed for a 2005,.... were they using aniline dye on the backs at different times?.... cuz I thought that was only 2013 and later models....

G0s of that vintage all mostly have bad binding bleed. From like 2010-2012 they did something that stopped it. Then binding bleed came back in 2013. But yeah, that guitar has been played so I'd be weary about fret condition.

From that closeup above, that fret looks low to me. Probably been dressed at least once. Playing a guitar with frets that are really low sucks IMO. But everyone has different tastes.

Nah, typical bleed. That it hasn't worn off more tells me it hasn't been played to death.
Most of the binding bleed along the neck will fade out over time.

I think '09 is when they went back to using non-aniline (permanent) back dies and then switched back to aniline dies in '13.

Idk what the 1st year for aniline backs was tho I know it goes back to at least '03.

A 2005? I heard of people on this forum getting them new for $2200 way back then after they sat for a year or two at the Guitar Centers. As time went on, the prices went up obviously. Originally, they were sub $3k guitars (not MSRP but out the door). 2005 was the first big year for the G0 I think. I think the first, first one was in 2003 though.
