hey guys! need an opinion big time

does anyone have any idea of what rg this is? i noticed it doesn't have a rg sticker on the headstock and that would lead me to believe it could be a higher series rg..

i think your right looking at the catalogs. it has a lo trs right? do you think it would be worth 150 or should i pass on this? not so use to lines outside of the rg's yet, so i dont know there values as well.

Re: hey guys! need an opinion big time

Its an EX series, can tell by the sharper horns. I probably wouldn't spend that much on one of those, they are a low-end model.

yeah thanks man. i thought the horns looked a bit odd. he was asking 150, and i dont think its worth it for what it is. i thought it was a higher rg like a 770 at first because of the shark fins, and lack of a rg logo lol i still have a lot to learn about ibanez stuff

Yeah--pass on that! Your CL $150 RG-550 was one of those rare deals--don't hold your breath for another--but keep an eye out anyway.

RGs don't have inlays like that, they are similar but also clearly different. An RG-7xx series would have inlays like the ones in the gold ProLine PL2550 at the front of this shot:

Re: hey guys! need an opinion big time

i think the ex is right.... due to the shape of the horns and the triangular inlay. it is not sharktooth.....

Re: hey guys! need an opinion big time

thanks for the advice guys. you think it would be worth to pickup for around 75 bucks? i am not really hurting for another guitar, and this one would need a bunch of work, but i guess could be a fun project if the price was right.

Re: hey guys! need an opinion big time

If your willing to pay money making it a project...I'd rather get parts of a RG550 and make a worth while project, you can never go wrong in that direction...

Re: hey guys! need an opinion big time

I would also get RG parts for project. But if you dont mind 75 bucks for it and some more for the exrta parts, you will buy, than why not. It might be fun after all, just dont count on sell it afterwards for more money. Btw not many guys do project with EX guitars.. At least not, that i see.
