NGD! Great deal on an RG570!

So a couple weeks ago I saw an ad on Kijiji for an Ibanez RG for $150. It didn't look like one of the RG350's you see on there all the time so I took a look and after getting the serial number and pictures I figured out that it was a 1998 MIJ RG570. The ad said the guitar was in great condition and I was super stoked. When I went to get it, it had ****ing barbecue sauce on the back and it was definitely in players condition. Still being well worth it, I said I'd only give him $120 due to the the condition. Cause I'm cheap like that haha. He took it obviously.
I got it home and pretty much had to strip the whole thing down, clean it and put it back together which took me 3 hours. The Trem posts weren't even screwed in and the trem was fully into the body. So I took it all apart, and to get everything on it clean, it took me almost an hour and a half. Then I had to do some research on how to properly tighten a few things, reinstall them and set up the guitar. That took another two. Once I got it all put back together and set up it was a pretty nice guitar. The finish is alot nicer than I thought it would be. Half of my gear is green and green is one of my least favorite colors. Still in players condition with a couple tiny chips and some barely visible lines in the finish, but it's a solid axe. I really dig the basswood. This guitar with the stock pickups is almost as bright as my S540 with D-Activators. I still have to find the correct tool to adjust the truss rod, cause I guess this one is special and needs a socket instead of an allen wrench But anyways, solid axe. Amazingly solid axe for $120 Really really nice to have a guitar in a standard tuning for a change too

I would consider selling it for the price if you "want" enough.

Re: NGD! Great deal on an RG570!

I have a question actually, for anyone who has a high knowledge of trems.
The guitar didn't come with the stock trem bar, but it did come with one that isn't meant to fit. I'm guessing that it is what caused this problem, but the hole for the trem bar is really loose. I tightened it in the back of the trem with a phillips screwdriver and after some very light usage (with an edge trem bar) it became loose again. I was thinking about blocking the trem, and probably still will, but I'd like to get it figured what the problem is there.

That's a great deal! Enjoy it. I think Rich has those truss wrenches, if not--they're available elsewhere.
Here's what it looks like:

Re: NGD! Great deal on an RG570!

If you look at the top where the bar goes in the hole there should be to slits for a flat head. Tighten that down. It should stay tight. You're gonna need a large flat head though. And nice score love the color!
