Question Ibanez S-Series Help

Hey everyone,
I was at the local music store and came across a textured purple, HSH, Ibanez S-series with ZR Trem. Its on consignment and the guy wants $429 with HS case. I played it for about an hour and then looked closely, it doesn't have any apparent fret wear and no marks on the body. The trem plate has some scratches on it, but other then that it looks new. I've looked for a price on this specific model but I can't find anyone who has it in this somewhat ugly, textured purple. Do you guys think its worth the money? The dude in the store told me they sell new for around $600 with out the HS case.

Any help would be appreciated!

Re: Ibanez S-Series Help

That's a S470, maybe from 2005 - I've played one with the finish you're talking about. A solid guitar and the ZR trem is either good or great (depending on your preference). The pickups are nothing to write home about but for $429 with a HS case and in mint condition, you did well.
