Identify this prestige

7389118408 on that site; hope this is ok since the auction is already over. It's obviously not a 3120.

HSH, offset dots, trans red finish, black hardware and lo-pro edge. Pretty weird grain pattern, too.

Re: Identify this prestige

It's not a RG3120 and I'm not too sure what it is, but the fact that it has a second set of serial numbers more or less indicates that this was SUPPOSED to be a J-Custom that was eventually exported out of Japan and branded as a Prestige. That also explains why you can't see any strap buttons as some of the older J-Customs actually had the strap locks recessed into the body.

Seeing that it's most like an exported, prestige branded J-Custom, it looks a lot like an RG1308. Can't tell exactly but the body looks like it might be Swamp Ash which would coincide with the RG1308 as it was a Swamp Ash body as well(it came in Natrual, trans blue and trans red I think).

Re: Identify this prestige

The idea of a re-branded j-custom never even crossed my mind - yeah, judging from the specs it could indeed be a 1308. Thanks!
