Anyone have any input on this guitar?

Apparently, the thing sold new for $700, but it gets pretty sketchy reviews on Harmony Central. I found an excellent buy on one, and I'm wondering if I might be able to turn it around.

Ditto for a Fender Stage 112 amp.

Any info/opinions would be appreciated.

DO NOT GET IT, for 700 you could just get a Japanese prestige or a 2nd hand ones.

Oh no! I'm looking at spending closer to $200 for the thing. I'm just wondering what it's worth. I can't find a lot of info on it, but I was thinking of buying it just to sell it on eBay.

if it's the korean one, there's a good chance an OFR will fit. You'd need to try it to see what quality it is.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

The trem is probably a lo trs or lo trs 2... I'd say don't get it, but if you do swap out the trem for an OFR.

^ well, if it's korean it's probably lo-trs II, which means that although it's a worse trem, (as far as I know) the studs are the same size as an OFR. The lo-trs, while slightly better, has the wrong size studs so you'd have to drill to fit a better trem (with its studs). of course, guitars fitted with the lo-trs are MIJ (like my rg470).

it's just another of ibanez's extremely gippy business practices. they want you to have to fork out for a 1570. the only trems which are a direct swap for the good trems are on guitars that it's debatable that they deserve the upgrade. While on those that are (i.e. my rg470), you have to faff about with some drilling.

Is there a big difference between the 450 and the 470? I just watched a 470 sell for $365 + $40 shipping on eBay.

450 has pickguard while the 470 doesnt. Its like the comparison between the 550 and the 570 accept that its worst. Its equipped with the LoTRSII which you'll have clunkiness and wobbliness on the arm. the 450s also have triangle inlay (cept the maple which has dots).

Most 470s have V pickups which is better than those INFs on the 450s. The best RG450s is the 2003 RG450LTD MIJ, kinda hard to get, equipped with Edge Pro, V pickups and Japanese Wizard II neck.

well, i'd say my 470 is worthy of upgrading, just it's darned awkward to do so. it doesn't feel all that much worse than the old 550's and 570's, or the modern prestiges. it feels better than the modern pro series jacksons which are raved about (mainly because of having duncans stock ), to me.
