I really need help identifying this Ibanez model
I bought this guitar a while back and i'm having a nightmare identifying it's model! It looks like a RG550, it has an odd tonic purple/pink colour.
Serial number: F937066
So, Made in Japan 1989 apparently.
However, the headstock doesn't have the Ibanez imprint. I have no idea what model this would be, the seller claimed this to be a prototype (sounds dodgy), he also (I think) claimed it to be a DX. I found a guitar that looks similar in the 89 catalog, the Ibanez RG550, which also lists violet under the availiable finishes (which I believe my guitar could be). The problem with the RG theory is that my guitar has an extra back panal than the other ones I have seen. The guitar plays beautifully and sounds nice, I do believe it to be a Ibanez (Ibanez is imprinted on the neck-plate also, if this even means anything..) but I just can't identify the model! It has the s1 stock pick-ups on it.
I do have pictures of the guitar but as this is my first post it seems I can't post them, I'm more than happy to PM anyone with links to the photos of the guitar. I've got such a headache trying to figure out what guitar this haha..
Any help would be so so so so appreciated!
