NGD - 1991 RG570

I've wanted a JEM for years but never been able to justify the money so as a compromise I have been looking for an 1990-ish RG5XX for a while now with no joy. The classifieds here are great but it's hard to find anything in the UK and I wasn't keen on getting anything shipped from the States.

So after looking for ages I found this 1991 RG570 in Ruby Red.
dropbox.com/s/riwdx3xefco0w9k/2012-12-03%2014.23.57.jpg

The body is in "players condition" and there are cracks in the finish behind the trem and the dreaded one in the neck pocket. Both seem superficial though and the previous owner says they were both in place when he got it (he's had it for a decade). There are a couple of decent sized chips in the paintwork in the usual spots (rear edge beneath jack input and buckle rash)

On the other hand the neck and trem are near perfect. For a 21 year old guitar it really has seems to have been sparingly used and plays fantastically.

Haven't bought a new guitar in 17 years so this is a fine fine day.

Nice guitar Macca! the red looks really nice and deep in the photo. That really was a golden age for Ibanez guitars - I have a 1990 RG550 and it plays better than my Jem. congrats on your new guitar man!
