RG560 - to buy or not to buy?
Alright. My brother in law owns this purple/magenta 90's MIJ RG560 (HSS, no pickguard type) - the headstock is also painted a matching color and has the Edge trem on it. I took the neck off and that's where I believe I saw "RG560". The headstock has only the serial number and "made in japan".
Thing is, he'd rather shove a 9 volt into the trem cavity to "block" it because he hates tremolos with a passion, and he's got a real nice OLD aria pro, so I'm considering making an offer to buy it from him; I currently own 2 ibanez, might as well get another, right?
He claims to have paid less than $200 for it, however, what would you guys offer a buddy of yours if he had a nice old-school RG and never uses it?
It would need a fret dressing, aside from that its perfect, plus ive never seen another purple RG ever.. so who knows, are these things rare?
