Need help Identifying a Roadstar RG


Here's my first post. I just bought Ibanez on Ebay.
I can't find this guitar in any of the catalogs from 1980 or 1990
Do you guys know anything about this guitar and why I can't find another like it?

Re: Need help Identifying a Roadstar RG


It's an RG140, probably from 1987 (should have a silver sticker with 'F7xxxxx'). Guitars from 1987 often had a mixture of Roadstar and modern RG features, so catalogues aren't always reliable. Date also supported by lack of serial on neck plate, still MIJ (later ones were MIK), modern headstock (on Proline only in 1986), scratchplate more like a Strat's on bass side.

Here's a 140 from the '86 catalogue.


1987, though still has Power Rocker.


One close to yours (this is a 1987 too, but have seen an '86 with the same specs), but vintage trem, Super 7F single coils, and Roadstar headstock.

Re: Need help Identifying a Roadstar RG


No worries. I think you've come off well with getting one that's got a vintage trem (does it have a big steel block?). The Power Rocker isn't great and has a small pot metal block, which doesn't do any favours to a guitar's tone.
