An RG 570 at the local guitar center

I just checked the catalog, and it's a 2000 Lime Green 570. It's priced at a 350 buck used price, although there are some nicks and a few scratches on the body, and a little crack on the top of the body. The action is way low. And there is a slight chip off the neck near the 3rd fret. So my question is, is this worth how much it is, and talking to the salesmen and getting them to lower the price (it's been on the shelf for nearly a year) and trading used stuff in to buy it?

$350 sounds pretty freakin good. I'd go for it.

Heh so 350 give or take a little negotiating is a good deal? And it's this color . I was thinking of putting dimarzio's in there afterwards, dont know which ones though. But what color pickups would look good wiith it? white perhaps?

I hate black hardware at least i think its black, might be shadow chrome, I think youd have to stick with black because theres allready so much of it unless you get some white knobs and switch tip. It would be hard finding a coloured pickup to go with the paint.

BTW, get it for sure, as long as theres no terminal cracks, its a great deal.

Turns out where the right edge of the top of the guitar is, theres a chip in the wood, a good inch off and it looked like it was glued back on. So much for a good guitar =(. It is one, but it's not worth trading in my RG4EX1 just for a higher end guitar with a chip in it.

If you have a free day, drive around to as many pawnshops as you can in your state, you bound to find a good deal somewhere for a much better guitar.
DERE AIN'T NOT'IN WRONG WID D'EM TRSs. Why does everyone hate them so much?

It is an edge.

He was either looking at the 470 or thought the it had a trs because it is angled back so far.
