Replacement Ibanez

#1 Post by ViaGuy » Mon Nov 06, 2017 5:00 am

Hey everyone, I might have a somewhat strange request today. My brother is finally out of an abusive relationship which I am very, very proud of him for doing so. One of the final staws for him was when his partner got upset over something mundane and then smashed his Ibanez guitar against the floor as a punishment. My brother is now living with me, and I would like to get him a replacement for his beloved guitar. He used to have an s5470 so I would like to get him another one, or at least a similar guitar if that ends up being harder then expected. I have looked at some website that stock it, but most of them don't have it available right now. If anyone knows of a good used guitar site I can look at or even better an ad for this or a similar guitar that would be great, I am going to keep looking myself but I thought I would see if anyone on here could help as well. Thanks in advance everyone, hope you all have a good day.

I took a look at that Guitar Central website and I don't know if it is a bug or something but I could not find any guitars that would ship to the UK. I did however find another used website called http://www.for-sale.co.uk/ibanez-guitar" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; that I found lots of great Ibanez guitars on, and after looking through pages and pages I finally found an S5470 that was in good shape. Going to surprise my brother with it this weekend when the rest of our family comes to visit as I think he will want to give it a test and we would all like to see him playing it, hopefully he will finally smile again.

1. go to used.guitarcenter.com
you can find hundreds guitars for half of what they're worth

2. your story doesn't add up-
You can smash an Ibanez S or RG into the ground 10 times before it breaks

So- idk if you're making the story up to try to get a free guitar- but- anyone- go to guitar center

So I am not going to get into the intimate details about my brothers abusive relationship online any more then I have to other to say that if you think needing to smash something against the ground 10 times is going to make an abusive partner give up then you are very lucky. Thanks for the advice though, they don't seem to have anything that ships to the UK but thanks anyways.
