What price for a damaged RG1570 Prestige?

Hypothetically , what would you pay for a damaged, but new, RG1570? Suppose, for the sake of argument, that the guitar had a couple of dings around the edge of the body, and the volume knob had obviously taken a hit, as the wood around the pot was cracked pretty good. The neck is fine and undamaged. The guitar is complete. All hardware is mint. No case. Whaddya think?

For disclosure purposes, I don't own said guitar, but I know where I could buy one, for the right price. Question is, what's the right price? It'd essentially be a project guitar, needing a full body refinish. With older RG500 series going for anywhere from $175 - $350, and new RG1570's going around $600 ballpark, where would you set the price and practicality of such a purchase?

I wouldn't see it bringing any more than a used RG570 or 550 in "player" condition. As long as the neck is ok and the overall structrual integrity of the guitar is good, $200-250 would probably be fair. You could get that much for the neck & hardware alone probably.
