help, what RG is this?

bought this guitar a few years back from a friend of a friend of a friend etc... apparently the dude was a drug addict and needed some $ so he got $75 and i got another guitar.

i love it i cant figure out what rg it is though

its id is F157496

HSH, no pickguard, IBZUSAF2 in the bridge, IBZUSAc3 in the middle and the top humbucker is worn off. no pickguard, wizard 1 neck, sharkfin inlays, locking trem "liscensed under floyd rose"

its a really cool color, hard to describe w/o pics, purple in low lighting and bright blue when light hits it.

Re: help, what RG is this?

The serial number says it's a '91 model, but they often rolled over to the next year. The '91 catalog doesn't seem to have a match, but the '92 does:

Looks like you've got an RG770. For $75 ? You got a helluva deal there !!

Interestingly I believe it's a '92 year model body with the direct mounted pickups! cool o see it with a 91 neck.

Fantastic guitar in any colour

sad some people uses drugs,....it makes the world a bad place and cost us a lot of money.
i really hope that the guitar wasnt stolen.if everything is okey?
then i hope he got his life on the right path.
and that you have a lot of fun with it.

It's a 1992 catalog model. Built in 1991.
Some guitars in the 2009 catalog were actually built in 2008. No trouble there.
