Re: Identify this RG

I've never seen one like that. Direct mounted pickups and a clear pickguard... weird. Quite cool, actually.

Re: Identify this RG

My FP has direct mounted pups & clear pickguard. Anyhoo the color of that one reminds me of the white UV's.

Re: Identify this RG

Yeah, not saying there aren't Ibanez guitars with direct mount pickups and clear guards, there's a number of them including the RG770DX and some of the FP's, but I have never seen what looks like an RG470 or something (TRS trem, dot inlays, etc) and direct mount pups w/ clear guard. I know quite a bit about RG's, but this one escapes me completely. The only thing I can think is it's something like a 470 with a refinish (no screw holes from the pup mounting rings) and modded slightly. I don't think it has been refinished, though.

Pretty cool how it's being played by a ghost.

Re: Identify this RG

Take the neck off and see what the stamp says on the body. I'm betting it's something like RG470dx. --Jason

Re: Identify this RG

Yes, remove the neck. Actually, some people are terrified of doing this, but there's nothing to be scared of.

Terrified of the truth or terrified of the hassle

Re: Identify this RG

Terrified of finding "Chibanez RG666DX" stamped in the neck pocket, I think.

then you'll be living in mistery forever. it's worth to risk your life than to live without knowing... kidding

no clue what it is, looks like one of those market "survey" they'd do especially in Europe. or probably one of those unique custom models made for Guitar Center that happened to be shipped to Europe by mistake. as weird as it may seem, these kind of mistakes DO happen, and not that seldom.

anyway, you must tell your father that taking a look into the neck/body joint is very important for the whole Ibanez community around the world. we gotta know what it is, and your "sacrifice" will save the planet. all in all, it's just two pieces of wood screwed together, there's no way to damage anything. i do it almost daily.

Re: Identify this RG

or it could be one of those misterious "B" models that Ibanez put out apparently to avoid trashing loads of left TRS trems. like the RG250B you can see here:







this had b/w/b pickguard and black stock pickups before we modded it. i'm not saying yours is a 250B of course, because it's rear-loaded, but who knows, they're probably from the same family.

Re: Identify this RG

I'm 99.9999999999999999% certain that it's an RG470 with an aftermarket pickguard.

I agree with this. I should think that a quick look at the type of output jack would confirm it.
