PR 1660 Value?

I came across an '85 model PR 1660 (Rhoads) at a local guitar store today and the dude seems a little delusional about how much older Ibanez guitars are worth. He's got this one marked for $599, but he said if I was seriously interested he would consider dropping the price to $499. He's also got a '91 jewel blue RG570 for $599. It was in decent shape but not immaculate. He was trying convince me that this "rare colored" Rg was worth more than $1000 and I told him he would probably never sell it at the price he's got it marked at. I don't think he likes me very much anymore, haha. But about the PR 1660, anybody know how much those are worth. I know they're pretty hard to find. Please inform me, thanks.

I think you'd need to be talking about the neck through model for that cash, honestly.

Re: PR 1660 Value?

Yeah, that dude was pretty delusional especially when it came to the old RGs. I have a '92 emerald green 570 and I use to have a '91 570 in jewel blue, both of which a paid less than $300 per guitar. And both came with hardshell cases. I told him that and he just kind of shrugged it off. That rhoads copy looked pretty sweet and was in pretty good condition. I just don't think it's worth as much as he's asking. Do you know a ballpark figure of what the guitar is worth. I got a pic of it with my camera phone.
