Used RG560 Price?

is £250 ($400) for what appears to be a '87 RG560, either Violet Pearl or Grape Ice, in players condition (couple of big chips, knob and trem cover missing), a good deal?!

possibly without trem bar too. very little info abt it in the fleabay advert!

Re: Used RG560 Price?

that seems about $50 (31.6GBP) too high to me. Especially if you need to buy parts for it.

I would look to find one in that condition in the $300-$350 range (190-220 GBP)

Looked at the same guitar (been wanting a 560 GI again for ages) and it just seemed too out of condition... Difficult call wanting an old guitar but I'm sure there are better ones for the price

Re: Used RG560 Price?

I paid just over 100 quid for one that had been (not literally, well probably not literally)run over by a truck.

The playability is awful but the tone is fantastic.

I'd be looking to pay around the £250 mark for one in very playable but not necessarly cosmetically fantastic condition.

hmmm, 2 peeps from norfolk looking at the same axe - what are the odds! :P i no what u mean abt the condition, but guitars are rare in this country anyway, particularly the less common ones like the 560/760 etc!

Re: Used RG560 Price?

Here in the States, a 560 in decent condition could sell for $350-500.
It really depends on condition and color. A 560 Carotene Orange will usually sell for more than a white one in the same condition.
