What do you think?

The seller claims it is a 550, but it has the Lo-Trs Trem. I'm guessing it's a 450, since it's made in Japan. And in this condition, is the price of RM800 (about $210) worth it? I've tried the V pickups before, and they're quite good, so I won't rush with replacements. I like the colour and the pickguard (I like mirror pickguards ). But honestly, what do you guys think?

I think it's ok... If you like it then I'll be happy too... But the colour is really nice... with the beautiful mirror pickguard...

Re: What do you think?

Not worth it at all man. Is this the one posted on jamtank? I thought he said it was an RG570?

It looks cool and all but the tremolo is horrible. Trust me on this, when you get an RG, you also want to get one with the best possible tremolo i.e Edge, Lo Pro Edge or Edge Pro. Never settle for anything less.

Those high end tremolo are heaven.

Re: What do you think?

That's a lot of rust on the bridge and pickups! The guitar doesn't appear to have been treated very well. I'd be wary.

Yeah theres lot of rust and metal corrosion on the pickups and bridge. Judging by that you can assume it hasnt been very well cared for and could have other serious defects. Its probably worth that amount but its a POS

Never mind. It's been sold. I think it was for the best, anyway. Well, back to the old auction site.
