Re: Ibanez RT 450 - 1994
It looks correct for an RT450 except the tuners have been swapped out (it should have Gotoh Magnum locking tuners which have a slot on the top of the shaft for locking/unlocking them). Also, I'd question whether that's the original bridge pickup, but it's hard to tell from the image. The poles closest to the bridge should have slotted, adjustable pole pieces. Other than that, it looks to be in good shape. For those of us that love them, $270 for a clean RT450 would be a good deal. You can always replace the tuners and guard later. These are very fine guitars and it's become harder to find good ones in recent years.
Edit -- also noticed the knobs have been changed (should be black), but that's definitely nothing that would bother me.
