Post subject:  Finally ready to look for a Ric

So for my first post, I'm Cas, hobby guitarist, currently saving and selling my gear due to GAS. However the guitar I've always had my eye on is a mid 70's Ric 480 in Azureglo. I've been told that he Azureglo is one of the rarer colours. So with all rareness withholding, what should I be looking for in a used Ric, and where would I even start? I'm aware of issues that arise with aged guitars (i.e. truss rods maxing out, finish blemishes etc.) But what should I really keep an eye out for, and what makes a seller reputable? I'm a bit overwhelmed as to where I should be looking for this beast, as well as what to keep an eye out for in terms of whether it's worth buying if I should find one. Any amount of advice helps.

Thanks in advance,
