Where is the guitar located??
Yeah, 6900 sek would be WAY too high. In pristine condition, I personally would be willing to pay the same as a comparable 570FM..... maybe $600 (4200 sek)?. If it has "damage" you'd have to deduct accordingly.
As far as rarity, it was a Japan only release as far as I know so the numbers must be somewhat limited. I know that I've never seen one, and don't ever expect to.
It's located in a really small shop (like a 30 square meter shop) in the south west of Sweden... I will try to get the price down a bit, since it seems like it's not an RG Prestige, which he thinks it is, therefor the price... It ended up in the shop in 2008, and some weeks ago he found it in the very back in the storage room, so he had the frets done and everything on it... Plays like a dream and sounds killer.
If i can get the price down, I will most surely buy it... mostly because it's a rare guitar, probably.
I found this one that sold on the bay in july of this year........$510
maybe it will hep in your negotiating?
Maybe, since lefty's are always more expensive!

and the neck.... yeah the neck... the shape and dimension is strange.. it's not an original wizard, it's not a wizard II, it's just strange..
soundwise... being owned too many RG in my life, I can't tell this is the best one i ever had.. it's just.....average.
Yeah, I agree on the neck. I've owned a RG350DX with the Edge III tremolo (yeah, i know...). I thought the neck was too small, too narrow... On this guitar... well... Almost love at first touch, if i'm honest.
Reminds me alot of older Jackson/Charvel-necks. I really like it, since Jackson/Charvel is actually "my brand" of guitars... Though, this RG680 (as it appears to be) really got me... As I mentioned, it probably has a DiMarzio Super Distortion in the bridge... Long sustain and sounds really, really good...
