Re: Fair price for a '03 RG1570
It's hard to answer this question without knowing about the condition of the instrument.
Yes, these sold for $900+ when mint and new, but as a used guitar, I would expect to pay considerably less. Now, if the guitar is in stunning condition--no chips in the paint, minimal fretwear, minimal wear to the hardware--then $400 is an excellent price. If the guitar has been beat up (and it seems like every 1570 in Grey Nickel has been treated like Chris Brown's fiance), then $400 is probably more than I'd pay.
