Ibanez rg id help please

Hey guys... saw a guitar I've never seen before for sale.

Appears to have the following

- Blue to black flame maple top
- BODY binding, NO NECK binding
- ring mounted h/s/h config. couldnt tell, unmarked.
- normal dot inlays on rosewood
- APPEARS to be a chrome edge. MIGHT be an edge 2/3. Picture is fuzzy

Seller doesnt know model number, and is busy for a couple days, so Im just wondering if this is something to pursue or let it go. Spent about 30 minutes on google, nothing came up. Closest I came up with was an rg2560, but thats obviously not it.


I made a mock up on VRG. This appears to be pretty accurate.





No neck binding, no sharkies = NOT an rg2/3/4/5exfm1

Re: Ibanez rg id help please

Are the pics fuzzy enough that the hardware color is not accurate? It could be an RG570FM.

The picture is indeed awful, else Id just post it here.

570fm was the first thing in my head, but those dont have bound bodies.

I would probably say it's a mutt. I can't find nothing with a body binding with out it having neck binding as well. Closest I can find is a RG 970 and it has neck binding with offset dots and it's not flamed maple, and has a 27" scale.

Sounds like the one. Good video of it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H78HVhKDk28

Edit: Good visual, I didn't listen to what was played.

I think Korean, because of the cheaper trem and plastic pickup rings.
