Need some insight on an Ibanez
Hey guys, been away for a while now, but I recently got a job and things started to turn around a little bit and now I'm finally getting back to guitar playing. For those interested, I used to make those renders of Ibanez guitars a while back here on the forum.
Anyway, I saw yesterday a guitar on sale, and I need more info from experience Ibanez owners to see if it's a good buy. The guitar is a:
Ibanez RG 470FM 94' (MIK)
Transparent Black finish
Maple fretboard with black dot inlays
Seems to be Near Mint condition
It's running for US$470, fixed price, in an auction site here in Brazil, so I would guess the same guitar would be sold for about US$300 over in the USA. Do you guys think it's a worthy buy? I thought about getting it and refinishing it (The black finish doesn't look good with the maple board), changing pickups and so on.
