PGM301 thoughts? - Fixed-bridge version of PGM300

Hey guys. What do PGM301's go for these days? And what do you think of them?
How is the Gotoh fixed-bridge on this model? I noticed no locking tuners. Stays in tune well? How's the comfort under the palm compared to a trem? How's the 1-piece neck?

I've never had an Ibanez with a fixed bridge so I'm curious since I'm planning to sell my ESP LTD H-1001 when my RGT320Q comes back from the shop with D-Activators. I'm curious more-so for dropping tunings on-the-fly since I won't have a hard-tail if I sell the LTD.

The local seller's PGM301 has a 1-piece maple neck, so it's from 2003/04. He's interested in my Prestige RG3570Z. I'm considering this trade

I think there was one on the bay a month or so ago for around $1200 if I remember correctly. I love mine, stays in tune well and I could play it all day long.

Not sure about the 1 piece neck, mine's an '07 so 5 piece neck

Ah I see, so I guess it doesn't retail / resale as much as the RG3570Z.

What is the nut made of? Is it like a cheap plastic, or bone or whatever? Also, are the tuners standard Gotoh tuners, or locking?

They're standard Gotoh tuners, not sure what the nut was, felt pretty sturdy
