ibanez rg Headstocks

Someone made a suggestion for a headstock thread so ill start it off.

heres my '99 570, post pics of yours and tell us the model and year so we can compare the shape. And remember we want diversity amoung models.



BTW do you like the old style wizard heastock or the new one??.

Re: ibanez rg Headstocks

my logo isnt the best to compare (dont ask about the tuners).

'99 MIK 270dx and the '99 MIJ 570 and metalzones 1570


The MIJ is alot thinner and longer, the angle isnt exact but u can see the difference nonetheless.

Re: ibanez rg Headstocks

None of them look very different to me. The slight differences that are there can be explained away by optical illusions/tricks of the light.


Anyone feel up to taking some shots with a ruler against the headstock to prove that I'm talking rubbish? I would, but my camera doesn't have any batteries, and the memory cards have gone walkabout. Measured both of mine just now, and they seem identical.

Re: ibanez rg Headstocks

Hmm... the difference from the pic u posted seems pretty minute. My RG1570 seems to curve a tiny bit more on the two curves compared to the RG570. other than that, all same.
Can't see much on the RG270dx though... is it really that much shorter? or optical illusion?

just took this pic on my camera phone...

slight viewing error from the pic, actual exact measurement is 205.5mm

Re: ibanez rg Headstocks

i measured them both b4 posting on the other thread and its not just an illusion. ill do the same for mine tomoro^^.
The 570 is 20.6 cm (we all know how much diference 1 mm makes)
270 is 20.5 like yours looks to be.

ill do a more difinative measurement and pics tomoro

LOL. That was pretty random
I have another 18 inch one as well. Since I don't have a feeler gauge, these are what I use to set up my guitars.

Re: ibanez rg Headstocks

The prestige has a nice iridescent look that the camera never picks up.
