Hey everyone..

I could use a little help..
I have just put my Blackstar HT-5 amp on sale, and someone has asked me if I wanted to trade it for a guitar..

I wasn't actually planning on this, but i am not really selling the amp because i need money, so now i am considering the offer.. But i could use some of your expertise.. i am considering this because i really only have one other guitar, so one more wouldn't hurt..

The guitar is an Ibanez Prestige RG 2610e, and the finish on the guitar is cracking.. i am guessing he has tried to spraypaint the cracks but the paint is also coming off now..

Now, i have put the amp on sale for 378 US dollars, and he is saying that he bought the guitar for 1600 usd (and now selling it for 378, which is why he wants to make the trade)..

What do you think?
thanks

EDIT: the guitar comes with case and two tremolo-arms, but back plate is missing.. It's from 2007, and he has also added a tone-control..

EDIT 2: my primary guitar is a Gibson Les Paul

Really comes down to how much you need the money it seems. If you need the money, selling the semi beat up ibanez might be harder than an amp in good shape.

I think the amp is easier to sell than that guitar.

A guitar with cracked finish and missing backplats doesn't sound like the trade is off to a flying start... :-/
