ghostrider?

Were these models rare or something?

Hardly ever see these for sale on evil*** or anywhere, especially compared to the number of RGs that are pumped through the system.

What's the deal?

Re: ghostrider?

Rarer than most RGs, and they look good. Made in Korea back then might be why some avoid them. But as I recall there was one MIJ model of it as well... The 520. I could be mistaken. I have never tried one, or seen one in real life. So I really don't know if they are any good.

Also made in Korea. Had one. Pretty guitar, very comfortable to play but MIK quality. With a couple of mods (tuners, pots, and pups) its a keeper.

The one Shawn Lane had was made by LACS, so the GR520 can not be compared at all with it.

My thoughts exactly. I don't like symetrical cutaways either.

Re: ghostrider?

i own a 320 and a 520, both MIK but they're pretty nice guitars, very straightforward and simple design. the only con is that they're a bit unbalanced because of the short upper horn, which moves the strap attaching point toward the bridge side. this usually causes lack of balance. i put ToneZones on both, and they just scream!

GR520TG
(DiMarzio ToneZone P90 at the bridge, no tone knob)





GR320BK
(DiMarzio ToneZone bridge & neck, no tone knob)

320: P90s

220: Tele bridge

Re: ghostrider?

wow that's true, my bad, i thought the "highest" the class the highest the number, as Ibanez always did, but not this time. damn Ibanez

but seems like there's still a bit of confusion about numbers: in the 1995 USA catalog we can see an arch-top P90 220, while in the 1994 USA catalog there's a Tele bridged 320. so the correct model numbers would be:

520: H/H w/split block inlays

320: Tele bridge

220: P90

am i correct?

Re: ghostrider?

Correct (except for 1994 )

Still, really cool lil axes if you tweak them right, and it sure looks like you did!
