I've been thinking of buying a 3120 for a while now, but the one that has my interest most I can't find any evidence of in any Ibanez catalog. It's a 2001 and the looks and features are pretty much identical to any other 3120 I've ever seen with the exception of the top and the finish, and some owner mods (new switch, and neck pickup isn't a PAF pro).
Instead of one the standard colors (DR, TW, VV) it's a natural finish that is closer in color to what I've seen on the 2120 with the Koa tops, and is a darker brown, with less of a red hue than the VV finish.
In regards to the top, it's also different in that, while it does have some flame in the center of the body that goes from side to side, most of the figuring in the wood is a very nice natural grain that radiates out from the center of the guitar and runs longways on the body of the guitar (more similar to what you'd see on one of the RGA121s).
Does this sound at all familiar to anyone here? Could it be that it's not a 3120, but some other Prestige?
I'm a sucker for Ibbys with natural finishes, and this one's giving me some serious wood "wood", but I'd be ordering from overseas, and with so many fakes out there I'm always skeptical about anything I can't positively ID in a catalog.
Any help appreciated!
