Thanks man.........I actually paid a fair penny for the body but it is in such great condition that it was worth every cent....probably more.

Every once in a while some killer deals show up on Craigslist, but for the most part it's Gio's and RG350's. I do live close to a fairly depressed (economically) town called Joliet. You may have heard of "Joliet" Jake??? This is where the prison that Elwood picked Jake up from in the beginning of the movie is located. Anyway, a lot of deals pop up in the local classifieds, but they're rarely guitars that any of us would like.

Re: Heathers II...WHAA??????

Beautiful Ryc! Is that the neck off the white RG760 I sold you? As I remember that way a hell of a nice neck.

I like to take care of my friends here on Jemsite I got this guitar on eBay and it turned out to be much nicer than I thought, so I called Ryc and told him that I had a body that he couldn't pass up. I've gotten a few really killer deals on 700 series RG's now.

One and the same my friend!!!!

Dude, I can't thank you enough for this!!!! This is one of my grail guitars (as you've known) It seems such an odd selection to covet, but when I was 19......... I would dream about this guitar almost daily. I had a pink series 10 with an H-S-S setup that was crap, but it was all I could afford. My girlfriend at that time (later to be the mother of my sons) went out and bought a brand new 1990 RG770LB for me after someone had cracked the neck on the series 10. I fell in love with the 770, but the HP760 was secretly the one I always wanted.

Thanks for the help Bro!!!!!!!!

@ my Bat Bro!!!!!! I know, and no one better than you to send the first HP guitar to..........you'll bring her back to life the way I can't (finish work)

Re: Heathers II...WHAA??????

Wish I'd have done a better setup on that one.

Congratz Ryc, she really is a beauty!! THAT colour is certainly one of the best Ibanez has ever produced, those were the days eh? Stunning guitar, would love to own one in that finish someday.

Re: Heathers II...WHAA??????

I like those too, but have mostly just seen them in pictures (one on eBay recently I think also), I could never tell if they were pink or a pink-orange color. Bet it's a great guitar though

Wait til you see her!! I know this is one you'll want for yourself!!! You can do the setup on her if you want. I did a decent one while putting her together, but she could use a neck shim and a little tweaking. You know how I like my setups. This neck is the first one I've had that feels identical to the Eagle. The 770 is close, but this one feels EXACTLY the same.

I found the first Heather on Craigslist. It's missing some paint and has a good few dents/chips, but the neck and hardware were extremely nice. I got it for $150 last year.
