A guy wants to trade me for his guitar which he claims is an Ibanez rg350dx. I noticed that the pickups are white and when I asked he said that its an older model with dimarzios. Can you guys tell me if this guitar is any good? How about compared to the newer rg350dx models?
Heres the pic.

EDIT: I also dont like how that top pup seems to be yellowing. Whats up with that?


Im a noob to guitar pretty much, but I decided to pick it back up again, after selling my old one for money issues. Id like to play some post grunge/alternative music.

Im not really looking for it to be better. I plan on blocking the trem, I don't really want to mess with a Lo trs of any kind.

How much you paying for it?
I wouldn't pay much for an rg350 in all honesty...
What type of dimarzios are installed in it?

Im trading a bass amp which I value to be around 350-400 bucks and hes throwing in a 150 buck bass cab. He didnt say about model, he just said they were dimarzios. (could be bs)

I'd back away from that deal. An RG3 isn't worth anything over $200.

Okay, thanks guys. How about the S470 FM?
Is that worth 200 bucks in ok shape?

If it has the zr then yeah id say so.
If the value of the bass amp is what you say it is you could probs pick up a cool MIJ rg/s for 300-400 if you look around.

Yea I found this s470 locally for 200 bucks. Needs the back plate and a setup. I think thats a good deal.

I'd definitely jump on an S for $200. That's a great deal IMO
