Are these good deals? RG550DX LB & RG760 CR

Hey guys, although I probably don't need any more RGs (currently at 7), especially since I'm loving my RG770DX LB Reissue, but what do you guys think about these? I know they're pretty "rare", but do you guys think either of them are a good/great deal? If anyone has experience with either, how will they stand up to my RG770DX LB Reissue (I'm curious because they're the originals from the "golden era")? Here they are, currently up for sale in my area (haven't seen either of them in person yet):

1) 1992 RG550DX LB (F217063) - $460 CAD no case - all stock / original. 4-5 small paint chips around the edges of the body and a small crack in the pickguard behind the tone knob (can see it in the pictures). Neck is in "excellent" condition (according to the owner).

2)1990 RG760 CR (F007003) - $650 CAD w/ generic tear drop case - According to Ibanez Wiki these came in Cranberry Red (CR - 1990) and Lipstick Red (LR - 1988-1990). I'm not 100% sure which one this is, but it definitely looks more like Cranberry Red rather than Lipstick Red, which would make it rarer since CR was only made in 1990? Looks original except for the bridge pickup. Some rusty hardware and neck pocket cracks, but looks decent overall for the guitar's age.

Personally, I think both are pretty good deals.

PM me if you're in GTA and might be interested in '92 RG760 in Emerald Green in nearly mint condition.
