Lightly used RG520- should I take it?

There's an RG520 sitting in the local music shop where I take lessons. It's a couple months used, but honestly, I would never have known if the owner hadn't told me. Reciting the specs to you guys is probably along the lines of preaching to the choir, so I won't bore you. The price tag is $450. Is this a fair price for this axe?

I think Chesbro is blowing out their last new ones on ebay at right about that price, case not included.

That's a "you could have a brand new untouched with warranty for that", but often being aboe to feel/touch/smell/play is more important. The decision is yours.

I'd talk them down further than that. Used ones on ebay usually run cheaper.

My buddy snagged one for $175, and the only flaw was a dime sized chip on the back, that was well sealed.

Well worth the money, because the guitar plays unbelievably.

Of course $175 is probably an isolated incident, but I'm sure you could get $375 out of them.
