MIK RG450 for $80.. Is it worth it?

Hey all, this is my first post. I have the chance to score an MiK RG 450, black with dotted maple board. What are the pros and cons of these? I don't know which neck joint it has, and I can't really identify the trem from the pics. The pickups look stock and I just want to make sure I'm not picking up a lemon.
Thanks for help in advance, and I have about 30 min to make up my mind, so if ANYBODY can chime in, mush appreciated.
Thanks

BTW.... the maple board makes it worth a little more.

If you could send a link to the pics, we could help you be sure it is what it's advertised to be (actually a 450 and not something else)

Definitely worth it if the neck is all good and th body ok. Can always replace the bridge with something nice and you'll then have a killer guitar.
