So I was peeping through my local craigslist and saw an Ibanez S470 on there missing the trem arm and trem back cover and has a few scratches and paint chips.


Now I particularly, am not very fond of Ibanez guitars but...the guy is selling it for 185 and I was thinking maybe I should jump on the offer.


Opinions? it's a 2001 S470 so its says Pre-ZR trem system.

At that price I would be very suspicious if there are any more flaws to it. Ask him about the frets and bridge condition.

Well it looks to be in pretty good shape, and the finish is beatiful! For that price, I suggest you buy it. I have an S470 and I love it ('cept for the pickups)

Word. But $185... if you're willing to invest another $250 in it, it'll be okay.

I am instantly suspicious of the seller now; that video is almost over a year old.

Maybe the buyer decided to sell it again but you better be careful with this. Try to ask him for a picture on a very specific angle to verify.

If you can try it then I guess it's OK.
