1988 RG560, a few questions.

Hey guys, I'm new here. I'm in the process of replacing my crappy LTD guitar. I saw a used Ibanez RG560 at guitar center earlier, and the serial number told me it was made in 1988. The neck is in very good condition, the body has normal dings and dents. They were asking $350 for it. I'm hoping I can talk them down to $280 maybe, or $300. My questions are, what kind of trem came on the RG's this year?? Secondly, will the trem on this guitar be of higher quality than my garbage licensed floyd on my LTD?? Lastly, overall if I can get the guitar for a decent price, should I go for it?? Is there anything to look out for on an Ibanez that is this old?? Thanks a lot.

Thanks for the reply. Also, what other locking tremolos would fit on this guitar if I decide to change it out?? Thanks.

If you don't like the profile of the original Edge then you can swar it directly with the lo pro Edge. But the original Edge is a pretty damn good trem, so you won't be needing to swap it .

Re: 1988 RG560, a few questions.

i think you'll like the edge. it is the best ibanez trem around. Even if not setup right it functions excellent and is extermly smooth. The lo-pro isn't to me as good as the edge . 350 is good if you can talk them down that would be even better. They are excellent guitars though.
