Re: 570 worth it??
How hard are the screws to turn, all the screws on the trem that is. The blocks will be dirt cheap, and if the screws turn, then you would be getting a very nice Japanese made RG.. I see nothing wrong with paying $350 for it. If you clean the edge up, it will be wroth half of that price. The neck is worth half of that price as is... If you like it, you should get it, I wouldn't insult them by offering less than $350 if mechanically the trem is operating well.
Who gives a **** what it looks like, if it plays well, and the trem does it's job, then for $350 you just snagged a great player.
Another thing real quick: I think the price of $350 is adjusted to accomodate the fact that the trem is dirty and needs string blocks. If it were flawless it would sell for more than $350. It would kind of be like buying a project car for $500 and saying the price should be dropped cause it needs paint.
