Re: What do you think these are worth?
I've played both. I know the shop that they are at.
The 565 has some big dings in it.
The USA custom's bridge needs some work. The blocks that clamp the strings in place are rusted...so much so that changing strings is very difficult. It was a pain to get old strings out, and really hard to correctly put new stings in. There was so little room to move the blocks back and forth.
I know b/c I bought it. The store has a 3 day return policy. After spending a lot of time setting it up, I took it back. It played nicely and sounded great, but I didn't want to put money into parts to make the trem work great. The guitar did sound great, though. I'm getting too old and too busy to mess around with fixing up guitars.
If you decide you want to come up to GB, talk to Lloyd. He's a good guy.
