This! RFR is awesome!

Played it today. Granted its general awesomeness- generally the sound you'd expect, speaks well all over the fingerboard, frets not too worn, and only the tiniest beginning of a hairline but crack, it's still not a BAD deal...but that's all I can say about it.

That's not a "steal" given the condition, but it's certainly not a /bad/ price, and overall it doesn't look too worn. If the frets are in good shape, I'd offer him $500-$550 and see if he bites. If he doesn't and it's really calling your name, $600 isn't bad for one of the greatest guitars to come out in the last 40 years, in an awesome color to boot
