Ibanez 450s anyone?

Ibanez 450s anyone?

Hi all –

My local GC has a used 91’ 450s in blue for $215. It’s pretty good shape; the usual neck pocket cracks but none behind the nut. The chrome edge has slight pitting but nothing unexpected for a 20-year old guitar. It definitely needs a setup as the trem is like 45 degrees off the body.
So what do you think? I just picked up a S420 and I love it; I figured I should pick up one of the old Japan-made Ibanez for old-time sakes? Or buy a used peavey valveking 112 for the same price?

Any advice?

Thanks in advance,

Jeff

$215 sounds like a great deal for an MIJ S with an Edge. Does it have a Wizard neck?

Re: Ibanez 450s anyone?

Hello I`m offered an Ibanez 450s for 400 euros. Do you think that this is a fair price for it. I'm not very experienced with Ibanez and I have not seen the guitar but was told it is in a good shape and it comes with a guitar case. Do you think I should buy it? Thanks for the help.
