I can pick up this today for $500 with original case. Serial number checks out. Worth 500?

The pictures don't show enough to determine "worth." If there are no serious issues: neck cracks, warpage, etc., then $500 is pretty close. You could still pick up a decent 550 for less elsewhere, though...

That's what I was thinking. Seems a wee high. I bought a 90 550, laser blue for 400, but it didn't have the case. Also been looking at picking up an S series. I've had severe guitar acquisition syndrome the last month. ****, just got that Jem not even a week ago

I price my RG570 at $500ish, but thats because its like near mint. I know that syndrome, I had it for the last 5 months now buying 6 guitars. At this rate in 5 years I will have 60 guitars. :]
