Worth it?

Should I buy it as a restoration model? How is the 450 series?

Trem and pickups are pooh, but the rest is good if you like the Wizard II neck profile. Upgrade the trem and pickups and you'll have a nice guitar.

Re: Worth it?

After spending money on a better trem and pickups, you'll have spent more than what you'd get a used 550 or 570 for in the first place. And that's if you could retrofit a better trem without any routing.

Hold out for a 500 series.
