possible prestige acquiring(update w pix)

anyone who frequents e.b.ay, perhaps you can help me out here..

well, im a bit strapped for cash, and a friend of mine knows a guy who owns a prestige. the exact model number im not sure, but the guy i know, sold it originally to the current owner. he says its for sure a prestige, and he says its a really beautiful blue(i believe he may have mentioned mirage in there) either way, i think its probably the rg1570..his buddy, the owner, is asking 250 for it u.s. and im supposed to go check it out in a few hours actually. i dont know if ill get super quick answers..but in the event that it is the rg1570, anyone know on average what these babies go for on the bay? i was thinking of buying it and selling it to make some money(or just keep it :P) and or is $250 too much?

ill get more info as it develops

also, seein as im strapped for cash, this kinda sux, i really shouldnt buy it, hahaha

$250 for an RG1570 is a STEAL! Unless, of course, it is trashed.

Re: possible prestige acquiring on meh part

$250 US for any Prestige model guitar in even half decent condition is a good price. I've got a 1570 in MRR, and it's a great guitar.

For that price, unless it's damaged, go for it!

Rock on!

Re: possible prestige acquiring on meh part

so, i went to try the guitar out earlier today, and its not a 1570, its an older model from 1998...i actually dont know the model, i just got home and i havent even checked the site but i dont remember seeing if this particular model is even still in production....anyways, he wanted 250 for it, and i picked it up a few hours ago..its got two dimarzios in it, im not sure which ones but they sound incredible...the guitar overal has a lot of small dings and paint chips in it, nothing to serious except for one thats quite big..there is nothing that effects the playability of it at all. it plays very well, incredibly....im loading pics onto a hosting site right now and will put pics up in a few minutes

Re: possible prestige acquiring on meh part

i knoticed there was a scratching when i turn the vol and tone knobs, i think its because there was like a bare wire grounded to the trem claw. either way im going to look at it more later and make it great. =D


check out the previous owners method to blocking his trem, i just got 50 cents



there are a lot of small chips and th such, but this is the only one that kinda sucks, i am going to glue it in so it doesnt kinda hang there, i dont mind that it would have the crack as long as its glued in there.




so overall i think i got a good deal, nothing affects its playability. all i have to do is clean it up a bit, replace one of the pads on the nut, and get a new trem arm. plus it came with two dimarzios not sure which ones though but sounds amazing...

Nice find! She's beat up, but at least you don't have to feel bad for playing the hell out of it. Kinda looks like a 3120, but I don't know if they came with quilted tops, all I've seen are flamed. I'm sure someone will have a definate answer for you.

That guitar is ssweeettt! Seems like a great deal for $250, nice pick up! Between that and an RG 20th you got a very nice collection started, lol.
