NGD - my "new" $200 rg570 - plus some questions

After lurking here for a while, I finally got my first ibanez guitar, an ibanez 570 for 200 off of the c'list.

It seems like it doesn't have a lot of wear and tear, but it does have some weird things: the locking nut has flathead screws, not hex screws, and the pickup screws aren't black like the hardware. The serial number points towards a 1990 guitar. I'll post some pics when I get home.

If anyone knows where to buy flathead screws that fit an Ibanez locking nut, let me know! I hate the allen screws; 3mm wrenches are always a bit too small.

Are you sure it's not a 470? maybe someone put floyd rose posts in it. Need pics.

I wouldn't worry too much about screws being a different color or hex vs flathead. Under 5 bucks can replace all of that.

Congrats on scoring a sweet guitar at an even sweeter price, that is a steal!
