HELP convince me that I should buy this... or not

I have been able to find some limited, conflicting info on an RG270B. As I understand it, the "B" tells that it has black hardware, and otherwise it is actually an GRG270B, meaning that it is from the Gio series. Can anyone confirm that this is correct?

At any rate, give me your opinions on this model - I've heard it's a basic beginner, no big deal, but works. I've also read that it's absolutely the worst and I'd be better off plugging into a potato.

I only ask because I have the opportunity to pick one up FOR $50!!!

It's got some hairline cracks by the nut, but the electronics work and everything. I own other guitars, so it's certainly not like I'm looking for a gem (or a JEM). Is it even worth dumping $50 just to own?

If the neck isn't twisted or anything else major, then it should definitely be worth $50. The rest, I don't know...

Save your money. For cheap guitars they CAN be good, but you should always play them and feel them in person before purchasing. I have a squier strat I bought for 65$ that plays and feels as good as my american strats, so its very possible for this to be a n awesome guitar.

This guitar is an rg270, not a gio.
