RG 470 question
First post. I'm looking at getting myself another Ibby to keep in drop D in particular. An RG470 has popped up at what seems to be a good price on another forum, but I'd like some advice before taking the plunge.
I know that the 470 uses the rather hated Lo-TRS trem, but having read around on here it is a direct swap for an OFR. Is it simply a case of removing the old one and popping the new one onto the posts already there or do the posts need changing too?
Also, the guitar is for sale at £160 (~$260) and comes with a JB in the bridge and an Iron Gear Hot Slag in the neck. Given the Lo-TRS and the couple of dings on the back where the finish has been chipped, is it worth my time to go for this, or would I be better off waiting and trying to find an RG550 with an Edge already in there?
