Purchase help! S470

I've been looking for an MIJ S series but haven't quite got the money yet. About an hour ago an S470 in green showed up on my local Craigslist for $175. I've had a couple of Korean models but haven't tried this one. Does it even compare with the MIJ's in any way? Is it worth it at $175? I'd likely do an immediate pickup swap. Is the Lo-TRS really that bad? Is there a good replacement?

Any quick help would be great! Thanks!

Guitar is nice. I have had no issues with the trem but am not a heavy trem user. $175 is nice if the cond. is good.

Re: Purchase help! S470

The Lo-TRS is that bad but, like dragster said, if your not a heavy trem user AND it's not already worn out it should last you. If it were to go bad, dropping a Gotoh in it is easy enough and FAR more reliable.

For $175, I'd buy it just for the fun of it. It could always be a "project guitar" in the future when (if) you buy yourself an MIJ.
