Labeled as a 270DX, but it looks like an older 470

Anyways, I was browsing Daddy's Junky music and came upon this.

http://www.daddys.com/t_content/theg...umber=IBA0073A

It's labeled as a 270DX as you can see, but that really looks like an Edge trem instead of the crappy TRS II. It looks like it has the old neck joint, so I'm thinking it's an older 470 with the Edge and the Wizard. If anyone can confirm this, then it would be a killer deal for an Edge equipped 470.

I love Daddy's Junky Music, but their used gear identification is a tad off sometimes. I think you might be right.

DX's have the shark inlays on the neck, IIRC.

i thought the 270 had an iltl-1, which would explain why it looks like an edge.

Definitely an RG470, could even be a 570, can't see the jack plate. If it's in decent player condition it's a bargin.

GET IT! Looks to me like its an RG570BK. A better shot or closeup would be great.

certainly doesnt look like an ILT bridge (even if its RG270 w/ no sharktooth). The pickups seems to be Vs, the RG2xx never came with that, they either have PSNDs/STDs.

Anyone catch the 560 with a LoPro for $250?

What a bargain. I'd say it's a 570.

$169!!!

its now reserved, so hope you (falkendrift) did get it. Would hate to find out that someone else on this board beat you to it.

Unfortunately, I wasn't in the market for it, as I'm left handed. I was posting it here in case another member wanted to purchase it. I would have grabbed it if I could have played it. lol

Hopefully it was someone else on the board that knows the true value of it.

That's a surprise. Hopefully someone from this site got it.
