looking at buying an RG470 but need advice
Hi, well, first post. Nice site - very informative. I suppose this is more an opinion gathering excercise but I realise there are lots of you that know WAY more than me when it comes to Ibanez guitars...........I have the chance of picking up an RG470. The shop actually has 2.
1) is made in Japan, coppertone (?), V7 and V8 pickups + a single coil. Lo-TRS trem - perfect condition. Not sure if it's a wizard or a wizard 2? price (cash) is $389
2) is made in korea, blue (yuk), inf pickups, lo trs - perfect nick but used. also has gigbag. price - again cash - $219
is there anything i should be aware of in making this decision? both guitars are set up terribly (i do all that stuff myself) and i will most likely swap out pickups for dimarzios.......so. what do you guys think?
