Help me identify this guitar?!
Ive found a guitar for sale on the internet classifieds, but the guitar is sold as "Ibanez Rg Series, built 1994 with floyd rose".
ive contacted the seller to see if he could tell me what model it is, and he hasnt got a clue. he bought it 2 or 3 years ago for £750, and is asking £250 for a quick sale. he has no receipt from when he bought it, so no luck there. and obviously its a big ask to get him to take the neck off!
normally id post the link, but until ive got a few more posts under my belt, i cant do that, so ill describe everything i can see:
has gold hardware (tuners, nut and trem - trem looks low profile)
H-S-H config (fuzzy picture, but looks like v8-s1-v7 written on them)
no pickup rings
24 fret maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, dot inlays
3 covers on the rear (looks like the usual rear trem access cover, the kidney shaped ?electrics? cover, and the small rounded square cover (for active pickups?!)
its got a stained wood body, which looks like a flamed maple top (in a trans blue colour)
my best guess (from a bit of research) is the RG470FM-TB, but from the highly detailed :P description above, has anyone got any better ideas, or any good way to tell without taking it to bits?
and if it is a 1994 470, is £250 a good price?? - there are 1 or 2 chips around the edge of the body, which is pretty typical of most used Ibbys ive seen!
