Ibanez RG-PR2 Prestige "Texas Special"

Hey guys,

Check out this RGPR2:



I bought this yesterday from a girl in Austin TX with every intention of flipping it but I've seemingly become attached to it. Made in Japan - F95XXXXX serial number. It's in great condition; never gigged, a few back edge dings on the body but the neck & headstock is perfect. The frets have little (if any) wear. Hardware (Lo-Pro Edge) is in excellent shape. It's got the pearl binding like a UV777BK and abalone purfling. The 3 piece neck has a flamed maple section right down the middle.

It sounds KILLER. The color is magenta (almost matches my Suhr Standard)



I'll have better pics in a couple days. Enjoy!

Texas Specials are mighty nice, but I'd take your Suhr anyday - It would make a nice pair with mine

Suhr's play unbelievably well. As Guthrie Govan would say, "eerily perfect".

Hey. I have the same guitar. It came with dimarz tone zone at the bridge and air norton on neck. I just didn't like the combo with this guitar. I put other combo pup's. Finally, I got EMG's in there and what an amazing combo. It's the same woods as a les paul just with a soloist body. I have a gibson sounding guitar with a soloist shape and trem bar with 24 frets. Guitar made in heaven.
