Opinions on RG560

I would like to hear some opinions on this guitar. Is this guitar legit? From the bay. 320434770725

Also would like to hear some opinions on the 560. Is it as good as the 550?

Thanks

Re: Opinions on RG560

I have one and I like it. I put the Fernandez 401 sustainer in mine to make it rock even more. I only wish it had the bound neck with shark tooth inlays like my old RG760. I paid $300 for it on the bay about a year and a half ago. I'd ask for some better pics before I'd buy it.

My RG560 is my main player. Quality-wise, it's the same as the RG550, just HSS pickup configuration and rear routed (which I prefer anyway). Can't go wrong with a 560.

It looks like a player. I'd want to see clear pictures of the neck, at the neck joint and behind the nut to make sure its solid. If those pics look good then I'd buy it.

Yea, I emailed and told him I needed to see better pics. If he sends them to me I'll putem up.

I was going to suggest that one as well.

Cleaner, and priced right.

Re: Opinions on RG560

Thanks guys, I made an offer to him and if that doesn't go through then I'll just buy it straight if no one else has. One question though, does that older model 560 have the orginal edge trem or does it have the low pro as well? I was under the impression that the edge was better.

Re: Opinions on RG560

It has the Edge trem. At that price I don't think the auction will last long. Especially if I keep looking at it

No, I wouldn't do that to you. It is a little hard resisting buying it, but I don't need anymore guitars......at least not right now anyway. Good luck!
