Is Ibanez RG440V a good guitar ?

I got a Ibanez RG440V offer around 300 usd. Is it worth it ? Is the stock pickup ok ? Any Advice please
Thanks

It's a basic Indonesian RG, stock pickups are Infinity's, not my favourite. Three hundred feels excessive for such a basic instrument second hand.
You could get an immaculate Korean or even a decent Japanese RG for that price.

Is that the black one with the white pickguard HSS with the SynchronyZR? I'd like to get one but they never sold it in the US. Well, I think one online retailer sold it as an exclusive maybe.

So the question was would you pay three hundred bucks for one?

Trouble is it's five years old, it's worth 200 not 300.

Very true! Yeah, unless it's NOS then $200 is about right.

I would say $300 is too much for that model. $200 is about right, but you could do better with a Japanese made one. Used you can pick one up for a bit more coin. I don't know what the market is like where you are, but where I live, it's a buyer's market, so shop about.

Yes the black one with the SynchonyZR I think the bridge is good but I don't know about the guitar. Is it decent or not

I like that it's classic black with a white pickguard and pickups and HSS. And at that price it seems a nice way to check out a synchroniZR. I've heard mixed stories about it. I'd like to try it though.
The only guitar with it in the USA is the Marco Sfogli, which I've also been jonesing for - but that's significantly more expensive.
