What have I got here?


Hi

I just recently got myself 2 Ibanez guitars.

One of them is supposed to be RG 560 but apart from Made in Japan on the neck plate there's nothing on the guitar to convince me if this is true.
I was hoping that some of you more knowledgeable Ibanez guru's can help me identify it!
It's fitted with Edge tremolo, HSS pickups(EMG81, EMG S, EMG S) and I was thinking of taking this paint off and repainting it...please suggest the colour!

The other guitar, I got in a trade and I pulled off the neck (it was RG170) and installed S 420 Series neck and I applied those stickers on the fretboard...looks cool and it plays great.
Apparently the body was bought from the Japan seller and I don't know if this is an original Ibanez body or custom made.
I installed EMG 81(bridge), EMG-S (middle) and EMG 60 (neck) and killer switch.
Is there anything on this guitar body that can let me determine if this was original body and what model is this supposed to be?

Thanks.

It seems that I exceeded the quota for my uploads and I can't upload those other photos.
Well if someone wants it I can send you the remaining photos of the other guitar, until I work out what to do here.

You're right. Pickups aren't stock and I'd say she's been refinished at some point as I don't think that colour is a factory one. I actually like the colour on that 560.

Re: What have I got here?


IbanezDeamon, I clicked on your name and sent you an email (I think) so I hope you got it? I was just saying that I haven't uploaded those photos anywhere outside my PC so I can't send you link apart from sending it via email to you!

I agree about the pickups not being stock but I checked the colour and I think that it looks like an original paint job(I've resparyed some of my guitars and this looks like a decent job done by the factory).

Still I'm thinking of rejuvenating it somehow...either by repainting it or ...else (suggestions please).
Being new here, is there any downloadable software to experiment with the different options?
I've seen some guy mentioning "v-rg builder"...is it a software on this site?

Thanks for that Linkage!
It makes it much easier to view it.

How do you get to upload those pictures I'm a newbie here and I was allowed only specific amount of space here?
Do you have to buy it or you get it with the time?

Cheers

Crazy but cool looking guitar!! The Becker Swirl!!!

To post pics that are actually viewable instantly in a thread you copy and paste the IMG codes as opposed to the URL (http).
