Rg450mmh?


Well, time for me to go guitar hunting again. This time I'm only going local and Singapore. So there's a seller in Singapore selling his RG450MMH. From what I know, it's got an Edge Pro and a Mahogany body. The pickups have been swapped for an Air Norton (neck) and an Evo (Bridge). Since it's EP equipped, I'm guessing that it's an MIJ. Does anyone have any pics or more info on these? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Imran

Nice looking guitar. I'd probably swap out the white pick guard for something else though, or maybe blue pups, knobs, and switch tip, but you gotta love the blue burst finish.

If I get it, I'm either going for white pickups for a Strattier look or a black pickguard.

It looks kinda Carvin-like, don'tcha think?

It is MIJ. Made around 2004 I think. Very limited quantity. Grab it quick. And what happen to the RG770?

It will be valuable cause you don't see RG4xx with mahogany body everyday.

Yes it does. That was my first thought.

Thanks for the info. I'm going to call the seller ASAP in the morning. Oh, for more info on the 770, check out the Vendors, Auction & Reseller Talk section in the 'Shipping Idiocy' thread.

Re: Rg450mmh?


Wow, sorry to hear that man. That's the reason why I will never buy a guitar from another country. But good luck on this RG instead. It will be a cool one. In fact, I am quite jealous of it. I always wanted a maple fretboard and mahogany RG.

If I get it, I'm going to mod it here and there. I'm thinking of changing the pickguard, the knobs and the pickup selector switch tip to black.

Yeah men, you should definitely go for it, it has nice specs and you can always mod a guitar with a pickguard in so many ways. Good luck and sorry about the 770

SGD$850. It's roughly RM2000. Do you think it's a good price? It has Dimarzios and a hardshell case.

I think it is a steal really. In 2003 I would have it's too much, but it's 2006 and with the prices Ibanezs are going for nowadays, you got a great deal there.
