RG570 price check!

I found in the paper a classified ad for an "Old school Ibanez guitar" for $350. I called 5 mins after I read the classified.
The guy seems to know guitars well, and he seems nice too. I kindly asked him for the Serial number, and then he continued to give me the model number, RG570. He also told me it was a Blue color.
The serial number is: F036311.
From what I can tell, this guitar has a basswood body, Edge bridge, and a Wizard I. Correct?

So the question is, whats a good price to get this guitar for? He told me that it has a lot of dings on it, but he said that he set it up and the EDGE doesn't go out of tune. Think I can get away asking $300 for it? Lower? Again, I think this dude knows his guitars, so I don't want to insult him.
It also comes with a hardshell case.

Thanks in advance.

Re: RG570 price check!

Sounds like a 1990 RG570. Basswood, edge, Wizard I. Great guitar, and I always liked the blue ones. Price depends a lot on condition, but $300-350 sounds like the right ballpark, especially with a case.

I bought one last year for a little less than that, but it was part of a package deal and was missing all the covers.

You won't offend him by offering $300. And if he was asking $350 he'll probably take $300 cash in hand rather than deal with setting up times for other folks to come kick the tires.

Re: RG570 price check!

Lately I've been seeing 570s go for about 350-400, so it sounds like a good deal to me
