Got my RG770dx today red

I feel like the guy in the old Toyota commercials who is jumping up and down! Great guitar, 24 frets on a bound maple fretboard with nice red inlays. Has F4, C3 and F2 pickups, all red and looking like new. These pickups have that warm "bite" that I just can't get with my s series. They bolt into the pickguard, not a direct body mount. Matching headstock looks good, why the F am I typing all this? You all know the specs!!! Here are the pics:

Re: Got my RG770dx today red

I have no Christmas list this year so I might just make the RG770dx it!! hah

on that note, how much are these usually compared to a 550? like 100-200 more or what? That would be like 700 bucks?

Re: Got my RG770dx today red

So, does Ibanez just put the clear pickguard onto the guitar, though it's not necassary? Just curious, cause it looks amazing, I wanna get a Reg none exteremely expensive RG and put a PG on it! Love the guitars, nice pics.

In this case the pickguard *is* necessary as the PUPs are mounted onto it.

that is one seriously cool RG and in great shape by the looks of it. Thanks for the pics.

Re: Got my RG770dx today red

Mine has direct mounted pickups, like a JEM77xMC

So yeah they can be just for show/feel. I started on an RG550 so I like the feel of the pickguard to ever so slightly alter the angle of fingers against strings.
