How much he asking? It have humbuckers and single coil, which give you variety for soundchoices. IPZ pickups are bit matter of taste, I personally dont like their sound, but many do. Its fretboard look cool in my opinion.

Hard to say how good shape it is without seeing it, but when you play, play long and see if it lose the tune or not. Its thou is bit matter of strings too, but also damaged neck, could cause it lose the tune. Used guitars are always used guitars :), never know.

hes asking 150 and he got it for just under 250 I'm already gonna play on it to see if the floyd rose works and im gonna check the neck isnt warped and the volume and pickup switch works im also gonna check the floating bridge isnt too low as that means it doesnt have enough springs on.

He was asking 200 but its missing one nut on the floyd rose or somthing and he never knew hes been playing it for ages missing this one nut but it shouldnt matter and i can always get one from PMT plus he bought it without a whammey (i dont know were he got it from) and since the whammey is usually standard I guess he taken off the price that much to allow for that

Plus he needs 100 more to get the les paul hes been saving up for ages for.

My guitar teacher recomended it as a guitar when I asked about it and this dudes ebay has 100% feedback and hes sold some guitars and amps etc on there.
Plus hes selling a drum kit and some other bits and pieces last time I checked so if anyone wants i can post the link to his page

it might cost more the the guitar depends but generally a very expensive fix. unless you mean the action is messed up and it is a problem the truss rod can fix (neck bow). action is mostly a problem with the bridge and nut. unless the neck is warped again another expensive fix. on a bolt on it would be around 100+/- 50 dollars (sorry don't know pounds). set in would be more then the guitar. as you can see it could be a lot of things with out seeing the guitar or getting a better explanation. it could be a lot to fix or a simple twist of a bolt.

apparently the truss rod isnt far in enough so it may just be a simple sloting in

it came out?? so it is wiggling around?? they don't make guitars with the truss rods coming out sounds defective to me or it's a broken truss rod.

@edit- sounds kind of funny if you asks me. (like when i was looking to by my first car and it said "very Clean") get pictures
