1995 RG570CT question

Anyone have opinions on a 1995 RG570CT in Trans Blue? Found one for $450 and doesn't look like it is in too bad a shape. Looks to have gold hardware, which is a little off-putting, because it is pretty faded. I had never even heard of the CT. I guess it was a 1995/1996 offering. I just don't know if it is really worth $450.

Re: 1995 RG570CT question

It's one of my favourites to be honest, it's an alder body and pau ferro fingerboard which made it a bit different (especially 20 years ago) the top is a "photo flame" and the pickups were nothing special to write home about, but as a "rolling chassis" it's hard to beat

IMO totally worth it.... even has the pickups mounted to the body (makes for great tone)
I would plan a pickup upgrade if you make take the jump...( i hate the v7/v8 set)

Yeah you should probably go for it. Fujigen build. Make sure there are no hairline cracks around the Allen screws that hold the locking nut on. The neck is susceptible to cracking there because those screws are sometimes over tightened.
