Ibanez RG503

Hello everyone!

This is my first message on this forum.
I came here to sollicitate your input as Ibanez experts regarding a model on which I found extremely limited information: the RG503.
It seems to be a limited edition, basically the same model than the RG502 but with a S1 single coil in the middle position
http://www.ibanezregister.com/Gallery/RG/gal-rg502.htm

Has an of you more information regarding this model?
Was it produced only in 98, how many model were released, which wood was used for the body?
Any idea what it is worth?

Many thanks in advance for any information you will be able to provide me with

Re: Ibanez RG503

usually those with "0" as a central number (502, 503, 505, 507 etc) are Wizard-II equipped versions of existing models (505 is a 550 with Wizard-II, 502 is a 520 with Wizard-II etc), so that would lead us to think the 503 as a Wizard-II neck'd 530, but... what's the RG530? any pics?

Re: Ibanez RG503

Thanks for your answer.

The RG503 is really the same model than the 502 (birds eye top) but with an HSH configuration instead of HH for the 502.
The only picture I have found so far is on this site.

I do not believe they correspond to wizzard-II equiped version of existing models, but they seem to correspond to limited editions.

They are special top guitars sold in Europe only I think.

Re: Ibanez RG503

Do you know how many were produced and what would be a fair 2nd hand price (in Europe, so probably a bit more expensive than in the US).
Thanks again.

i don't know about the 503, but you can bet the others i mentioned are Wizard-II versions of existing (Wizard I) models. anyway, these Europe-only models usually aren't worth more than about 450 euros if pristine conditions
