1992 RG1200TR PRESTIGE?

I think i may have found a 1992 Ibanez RG1200 (transparent red)
I have searched the site and read the info i could find

Just wondering if anyone else knows anything more about this model
the one i found has a chrome original edge and evolutions
rather than the lo pro edge and tone zone/paf combination in catalog

Ive also read that it was the first "unofficial prestige" transitional model
and first model to have AANJ (way back in 92). wonder how many were made?

do most such high end ibanez usually have locking trem posts?
this one doesnt seem to... wondering if they have been replaced or what...
also what would OB24 in the neck pocket mean? i thought maybe oval inlay?
24 fret obviously but the B i couldnt figure. thanks

Hey Syb....Welcome to Jemsite!!!

You need to get your post count up to 10 so that you can put up some pics of this guitar.

Did you buy it? or considering buying it?? in either case we can help you with the details, but we really need pics to know what you have.

Re: 1992 RG1200TR PRESTIGE?

I found it......It looks legit and original except the trem.......it's obviously a replacement OE. The tuners and nut look like the original cosmo pieces. Where did you get the stamp and pickup info? Are you the seller? There ARE locking posts on it...every one of the OE/LP models have them. I'm assuming the pocket/heel stamps have much more on them.....do you have pics of any of that??

It's not a Prestige. Prestiges didn't come around until 1997.... I think the 3120 was the first Prestige. 1992 seems pretty early to be a "transitional" model because it wouldn't be five years until an officially released Prestige....

Re: 1992 RG1200TR PRESTIGE?

please note that im not saying its a prestige, technically.
as i stated, some apparently think of it as the 1st "unofficial" prestige
transitional model. (whatever that means lol)

additionally i read it was 1st with AANJ (1992)

also i know for fact that sometimes ibanez seem to come from the factory
with an "alternate" or unlisted trem options etc. seen it several times.
(or maybe its the ibanez edge fairies getting to it before it hits the shelves)

just repeating what ive been able to find to read about it online.
would love to know more. thanks all. very curious
