Exclamation Need help! Should I buy this UV ???

I need a help from the UV pros here. I never held an UV in my hands, only saw them by photos, but now I have a chance to get a '96 UV7BK.
Here are the pics the guy sent me, but I'm not in psychological conditions to evaluate them, GAS is boiling.
Please tell me if she's worth, at least for what can be seen.
Here they are:

Looks nice. Needs a good cleaning and polishing, but if the price is right, I would grab it.

What about that neckplate? It looks bad!
Is there some thing that could be done?

Are you really that concerned about a neckplate? They're like 10 bucks on the bay. If you like the guitar then get it dude

All neck plates get that, who cares, it's only job is to secure the neck. If you spend that much time looking at the back end of your guitar, you must not be playing her all that much ;P

The neckplate is "in context" with the guitar.
Notice that all neckplates get that "almost rusty" look on the lower horn side.

if you are unsure ask for pictures of the neck joint from each side, check for the cracks that original style neck joint ibanezes get.

Re: Need help! Should I buy this UV ???

Aight, thank you guys for the positive feedback.
I sold my 555BK (which was really good) and I got this UV7BK.
Now, I'm staring at the window, waiting for it...
