    Default 1982 Phil Collen Ibanez Destroyer Mint!

    I came across this guitar. I was always a big fan of Def Leppard during the Pyromania era. I am not quite sure if this guitar is too expensive or not. Let me know what you think?

    I agree ...
    I can think of ALOT of other guitars I'd rather have for that kind of money.
    Cool guitar though.

    personally i wouldn't pay that amount, it's not my style of instrument but I don't think the price is too far off...hell if it were sitting in a guitar shop somewhere, I wouldn't be surprised to see it tagged 1999.99 so as to have enough to room to haggle down to 1500 or so.

    Well, if you want to get technical about it, going by the serial number it's actually a 1985 model, not 1982. If you are not picky about the particular model, you can find similar Destroyers on Ebay for much less.

    While I dig the Iceman details (gumby peghead, Iceman-style bottom contours), it is not worth the price. I would say $1200-1500 max, especially if there is considerable wear on the back of the neck. Ibanez probably made a zillion of those...

    I used to see those all the time in SoCal pawn stores. usually around $100 or so. Now that the kids all love Guitar Hero III, I see them snapping up guitars like this to modify for their GH controllers. (shudders).
