How much do you think an RG570FM body is worth?

It's the old style neck joint (squared with the recess). Body is in really good shape aside from the usual paint cracking near the neck pocket edges.

those are alder wiht a flame veneer, right?

Those are pretty rare. If the finish is nice, many people would probably pay $130+ for that body.

Do you have the blue or amber?

Well, I'm not selling but buying. I just recently bought a used RG550, but the body needs to be stripped as someone spray bombed it. I figured it might be easier to replace the body. Not sure if a 550 body is worth more than a 570 body. The 570 is the amber finished bookmarked maple veneer.

No, the 570 is not alder, your thinking of the 520 QS which is alder, I think the 520 is one of the only RG's to come in alder (excluding prestiges, and J customs which I know nothing about) and comes in Blue or Amber, but the Quilt top on those is Photo, although it looks real it not, b/c I sanded one down to do a dye on and I went right through the screen print when I broke through the clear. the 570 may have a real flame top, but I know the 520 QM's aren't. The they make a 520TBQM (Trans Blue Quilt Maple (fake)) and a 520TAQM I believe is how its lettered (Trans Amber Quilt Maple (fake))

I'd be interested to know if the flame on the 570's is real, or photo, I hate photoflames.
