Re: can someone help identify this ibanez?

Ok, I might be able to help if you can post pictures of the following:

1. The body

2. The serial number (wherever it may be on the guitar, usually the back of the headstock)

3. Neck

4. Bridge

Those pictures would really help!

Re: can someone help identify this ibanez?

wow, I've never seen a logo like that, that alone should be unique enough. What does that say, SMR custom or something?

I never seen that logo as well but must be some Custom order obviously but maybe for some endorsee. Check out the endorsee page at www.ibanez.com, or just email them.

Good luck.

Re: can someone help identify this ibanez?

Anyway this should be much more effective if you post more than one headstock picture per topic.

Is it a sticker you put yourself ? in that case, I could have several custom headstock hard to identify!

Come on! At least you could give us the e*** link!
From what picture d'you want us to help?!
Now we know it's a SSH guitar. Could be a RG560 as much as a 540S...

Re: can someone help identify this ibanez?

Okay, not sure if this will help, but the serial number (F117991) has given us this info:

The guitar is legitimate, I should say that first lol. It was built at the Fuji-gen Plant in Japan in 1991 (placing it at about 17 years old). It's production number was 17991.

Hope that helps.

And it has a locking trem system that's probably a black Original Edge but could be a Lo pro Edge, given it's a Fujigen and it's a '91 model. other than that... It could has been stored or repaired at a shop called SMR Custom some time ago
My bet it's a RG560!

lol sorry these pics were sent by email from seller by request ****s ones and i keep falling asleep so i aint thinking straight. the headstock seems to say RRcustom on the back but with the first R backwards if you know what i mean. Its a HsH strat looking at the other pictures, can anyone tell what trem it is? Im trying to find a cheap step up from my ibanez rg321 as i want a trem and second hand is my only option cos money is tight so just trying to find out if its a good guitar if i had it cleaned up and stuff by a luthier do people reckon i would work good?

Re: can someone help identify this ibanez?

Okay, here's another crazy idea. Because none of the pictures seem to work, I'm gonna take a guess.

What shape is the guitar's body exactly?

Dude! Have a cup of coffee!
Finally it's a HSH?
As far as I know Lockin trem system guitars back in 91 MIJ, are all Edge/Lo pro Edge equipped.
Black hardware could mean it's a 5XX if it's an RG.
I can guess it has dots inlay as sharktooth inlays are starting with the first fret.
By looking at the two pictures (from both topics) it's a non straight headstock.

It's not:
a Jem
a FGM
a 540S
a 4XX
a JS
a 540R
a PGM
a RG7XX
a RG550
a RG560(now I know it's a HsH)
a RG565
a RBM


So it's Probably a RG570
