I just bought a used G2420 for $325. I cannot believe the value for the money. The closest I've ever come to this value is the Squier Classic Vibe series. I've had many, many guitars - including a 6128 Duo Jet and a Country Gentlemen. Great guitars, but not for the money. The G2420 sounds incredible for the money spent. Yeah, so the switches and knobs are cheaper, I don't care.
