Crazy Question

I need the advice of some of you expert Ibanez gurus!!!

Now bear with me this is a long story ...lol Back in 90 or 91 I was traveling through Omaha Nebraska when I stopped at a small music store for some strings.

When I saw the most beutiful guitar I have ever seen to this day.It was a Salmon Pink Ibanez, Japan made.I remember the really nice plate that was engraved on the back of the neck.It had either blue or matching pink shark tooth inlays and matching knobs.Floyd Rose trem the fastest neck i have ever played to this date.

The list price on this hideous axe I fell in love with was 900.00 i think, I was a struggling student passing through Nebraska at the time.I couldnt raise that much cash.

So for the last 15 years I have been kicking myself in the a$$ for not buying this one.I have dreams about it.granted this has been a really long time ago so my memory isnt perfect.But I think the model of this guitar was a RG-770L
But all the research I have done, this includes going back to that music store in Omaha indicates that Ibanez never made a RG-770L.

So I was hoping maybe one of you experts could help me in my quest to find this axe that haunts my dreams.Did this model exsist? Or is there a similair model? I HAVE to have this guitar!Please help,
Thanks, Eric

Re: Crazy Question

It's got to be the RG770DX, unless it's that "lovely" Frank Gambale signature model (ugh...)

Re: Crazy Question

Great information guys thanks, The model was very much like the purple one.And it wasnt the Gambale one.This is what I believe the model was: IBANEZ,RG- 770 L PRO SERIES
NO PICKGUARD,BASSWOOD BODY, ELGUIT
1990 - 1991
And yes it was really Salmon Pink ...lol I'll never forget that color.Anyone know how to get ahold of a corp rep?
