this a very common ax around here?

i bought this ax for 150 at a pawn shop, they wanted 300, it came with a case and the guitar and thats it... its a 95 RG570FM... pretty wicked ax

http://208.154.236.234/RG570FM.jpg

not a bad looking ax if u ask me... but it has V1 and V2's instead of the popular V7 and V8 like my 1990 RG570BK has... of course it has the same S1 as the 90 model... i've only seen 1 other guitar like this, and it was from a dude in germany who was selling it on ebay... i'm wondering how common this guitar is

rg's are pretty common....but any japanese Rg for 150 bucks is a pretty good deal to me, more so with case

(remove the first / in /img so the link works )

I'm curious about the date you give though. The V1 and V2's were not featured in 95 in the RG500 series. It also appears to have the old style neckjoint with a neckplate which went from the Japanese RGs in 1994.

The 95 catalogue shows the RG570FM replaced with the RG570CT which had gold hardware and wasn't available in the red finish yours has, it too had the V7 and V8 pickups.

I don't want to appear out of line, but I'm going to presume the serial number on this one reads something like F95xxxx which would actually make it an 89 year model. I'd be grateful if you could get back to me on this just for my own curiosity so see if my theory is on the right track

As to how common they are, well in truth, I think they're one of the rarer RGs along with guitars like the RG565. I think they're a bit of a "speciality" model and I personally haven't seen nearly as many RG570FMs as I've seen RG565s. Your milage may vary.

Yep, I believe a serial number that starts F30 is indeed a 93 guitar
