Thanks to Teqnick!!!!
Well, there are now two people in the world that I will buy a guitar from without ever having seen it. The first is Rich, obviously, I just need a HELLUVA lot more money before I can knock on his door.
The second is Nick- Jemsite screen name "Teqnick". Last week he listed his RG570 in the for sale forum. Today we met to make the purchase and ,to my surprise, his guitar was in far better condition than I was expecting. The paint has a couple of small dings, and one trem post needs to be replaced (fortunately I already have a few locking studs). Nick was more than kind enough to wait for me to have the time to meet with him. I know he had other inquiries on this guitar, but he made a promise to hold it til I could see it, and that's exactly what he did. The neck is straight and true, (it will be going on my other 570 project- my other neck w/ shark's teeth and binding will go on this one) and the hardware is in excellent condition (other than the bad stud). All in all this is a quality guitar that was worth $100 more than I paid for it ($275). If you happen to have the opportunity to deal with Nick in the future, I would highly recommend that you do. He is a true class act.
Thanks again Nick
