Re: Ibanez Prestige 2005 NAMM custom

This is so amusing....

"This same guitar was at the 2005 NAMM. I had to buy one and pay only $900 for it. Great for stage presence.

Wizard neck with jumbos on a rosewood board, basswood body with a Ibanez Edge III bridge double locking tremolo system/original Floyd Rose INF3 neck and Duncan Distortion SH-6 bridge pickup.

Seymour Duncan Duncan Distortion SH-6:
High output humbucker built for aggressive playing styles. Recommended for old school metal, nu-metal, gothic, garage, punk, thrash and other heavy rock styles. Great for drop tunings.


Custom Painted by: LA boy-Leo McRae he has painted many Rock Star guitars over the years "


It's not real IMO. The keywords being "Edge III" should be a dead giveaway. Let's see if I'm correct and Rich corroborates my comments.

Wow, that thing is hideous. I would say another thing that screams fake is the cheap Ibanez neck pickup and Duncan bridge pickup.

It says Ibanez? Where? Ibanez sells guitars that don't say Ibanez?

There was nothing even remotely resembling that at WNAMM05.

Good one.

That thing is as phony as a $3 bill. And is it an Edge III or a "original Floyd Rose"? The guy can't make up his mind.

Re: Ibanez Prestige 2005 NAMM custom

I guess it's possible that someone had it in the boot of their car when they drove to NAMM after their guitar lesson. That counts as being at NAMM, right? Or maybe the this "LA boy-Leo McRae" had a booth to show off his mad painting skillz, dude.

Re: Ibanez Prestige 2005 NAMM custom

I wonder if the guy just means it was a model that was released at 2005 NAMM (is that when RG320s got Edge IIIs? I thought it was later but my memory is hazy), and he bought one and had it custom painted. If that's the case, I don't know if he's being purposefully evasive and letting the reader jump to the "guitar featured at NAMM" conclusion.

Re: Ibanez Prestige 2005 NAMM custom

hmm i talked to him over email, pointing out his leaks in knowledge and thats what he sent me:

"First of all your a loser with NO LIFE!!! Wake up this guitar was
custom painted by a well know guitar painter in LA, that is why thier
is no Ibanez logo on the headstock. Yes it has two pick-ups one the
INF3 pickup is the same as the Dimarzio IBZ in the neck and Duncan
Distortion pickup that i had installed for better sound. This guitar
is one of a kind, and the list price for it was $900 for a steal in
2005.

This is a RGT320QRBB RG PRESTIGE and is going for $570
Sorry you don't know your guitars!


Here are pictures of the guitar before paint"

he included pictures of an RGT320QRBB from tatdadada - jemsite
