    Funny thing...a guy was playing it when I got there....he passed on it and before he could set it down I motioned for him to hand it over. He said "its ok"

    Ibanez Artcore. Maybe 15 years old. Worth a lot more than $30. I won't put a price on it because UK/US values often vary. Nice score! :)

    EDIT: I've just had a look on ebay for US prices and I'd say it's probably worth 10 times than you paid.

    A few years ago I went to this garage sale and got a vintage Univox amp and a vintage fender spring reverb... $80 total.

    It was great until the guilt complex started setting in.

    Very cool find. Good thing the guy in front of you passed on it. It would suck to see him walk off with that bargain, mere moments before you saw it.

    Thanks for the link. Appears to be a 2008 model.

    I would feel guilty except that I didnt talk them down at all...it was marked $30. Also, these folks just didnt care what it was worth....they told me they were "letting go" and just wanted people to haul their "junk" off. I also bought a nice little yamaha keyboard for $10.

    It needs a little bit of fixing too...he said somebody dropped it....maybe a bit of a pain since I will have to work through the soundhole somehow.
