Gbase-where every RG is a 570
I've used gbase a few times before to find interesting deals. But recently, I've noticed a trend where sellers attempt to pass off guitars that are quite obviously 470s and worse as MIJ 570s. Buyer beware, I guess.
Not only is that not purple neon, but that's a football-shaped jack-plate and an AANJ body (no AANJ purple neons).
Here's a 470 in Grape Ice (a cool color that never came on MIJ RGs) with a Lo-TRS trem, also marketed as a 570.
Here's a beater with H-H pickups, no pickguard, and a Lo-TRS marketed as a 550.
