Re: Ibanez RG Guitar

Happy to help man, but we need a LOT more info to help nail it down.

pickup configuration
pickguard, pickup rings, or direct mount pups
trem or hardtail
serial #
color
switching options
number of frets
rosewood or maple fretboard
square neck mount or contoured
is the jack IN the body or mounted to a plate that's screwed to the body

Re: Ibanez RG Guitar

I don't know that much about the pick ups but heres a closer photo of them



there's no pick guard
its got a floyd rose tremolo
the serial number is f0124217
the colour is a deep purple, almost black with a glittery tint
24 frets
5 switching options
the neck appears to be rosewood
I'm not sure what square neck mount or contoured means
the jacks mounted to a plate which is screwed to the body

Re: Ibanez RG Guitar

which of these does it most resemble??

Your guitar is an '01 for sure........ I'm pretty sure it's a 470.

If you have pics of the guitar, you can email them to me. I'll PM my addy to you......

Re: Ibanez RG Guitar

OK.... here are the pics.




I KNOW this is an MIJ '02 RG470. I'm almost positive the color is CE (Canal Dark Blue) which is a color I've NEVER seen on a 470 before.

I know....Ibanez has a stupid way of naming colors. Often enough the color has nothing to do with the name.

This is my Violet Pearl RG750: It's neither violet or pearl....LOL
