Re: Ibanez RT (and related series) Neck Question
Funny that people always associate the RT's with Andy Timmons as being a "pre-AT model." The only time I've ever seen him with an RT was in the 1993 and 1994 catalogs. In both catalogs, he's holding an RT450BK, but in the '94 catalog, the pic is on the RX series page. Odd that he's not also associated with the USA Custom line, since that's what he's holding in the 1992 catalog, and what he's representing in at least one 90's era magazine ad or promo.
Everything I've seen him actually play live from the early 90's was RG based.
The AT may LOOK like the RT (actually MORE like the RX w/the rounded body edge), but they're really not close at all in tone or feel.
If somebody's got some documentation of his association with the RT other than for advertising, I'd love to see it. And I don't mean that in a bad way - I'd seriously like to see it. I did a search and found nothing but for-sale ads claiming "Andy Timmons RT-Series" and such. And that's not exactly documentation.
