J-Custom RG 1880: Need help!
So, I bought this Ibanez J-Custom RG 1880 about 3 years ago on Ebay for around $1,000. This is by far the best guitar I have owned in terms of tone. To give you an idea of the guitars I compare this J-C to, I've owned 5 Ibanez RG Prestige (top of the line ones), 1 Music Man John Petrucci model, 1 Jem 777v, 2 regular Ibanez RG, and some other guitars not worth mentioning. I sold all of them because I was never truly happy with any of them. This J-C is the only guitar I've ever been happy with. However, I do not have much information on it! So I have come to the Ibanez gurus to get some info on it, and the J-C guitars overall. I did read the J-C vs Prestige sticky but found it to be outdated and filled with mixed opinions and angry debates. So here are my questions:
1. Are these hand crafted?
2. Is this specific model what you guys call "bottom of the barrel J-C"?
3. Around what would be the going price for these nowadays?
4. Is there now a definite answer on J-C being "better" or even "different" than J-Cs? As I said, I've owned 5 Prestige and none of them came close to this guitar, so I would be surprised if J-Cs are just Prestige with a different name.
Here's a pic; thank you for your help in advanced!
