If it's an '85, then you're likely talking about an RS (and you're lucky it has no floyd). They had basswood bodies, one piece bolt on necks. I find that necks in the Roadstars tend to sit in shallow...

I'd give $350 (~ 220 quid) tops, less if the condition is beat up. Keep in mind, these are made of what's essentially compressed sawdust.

The Edge Pro II was in MIK RG320/350/370, RGT42, JS100, JEM555/JR.

Finding one these days might prove tricky, but then again, I don't see why anyone would even try.

Desaturated means the colour is not very intense or rich - it's "grayer" than the other finishes. Lines aren't the same because no two pieces of flame top are the same, if that's what you mean.
