Jack Secret's guitar porn - week 2 - RG560

Well, this is not becoming a daily thing but I bought a new digital camera and decided to jump to guitar #2 - My very first Ibanez - the RG560 in neoniriffic carotene orange!




So, the history on this one. I had turned 19 in 1987 and had been playing guitar for 3 years. I had originally a white/white Memphis Strat which I sold to a friend and was using a Charvel one humbucker with a Kahler fulcrum bridge (I shudder in the recollections) and a Kramer Focus 6000 with an OFR. I decided to trade both in somewhere towards a "real" guitar (seeing how the Charvel never stayed in tune and I guess I was a sucker caught up in the Kramer/EVH craze thinking I had to have a Kramer...foolish youth ). So, I went down to Focus II guitars in Bellmore NY (Now the Music Emporium) and traded straight for this lovely Ibanez which caught my eye the second I walked into the store because of the wild ORANGE it radiated. The salesman tried talking me into this light blue Hamer Chapparal (which they could not get rid of for months) but after trying the 560, doors opened, birds sang and wolves howled. Here I am and it is 23 years later and still holds a special place in my heart for being my first Ibanez and the foundation when I got rid of every other companies guitars I had to go all Ibanez.

So, obviously, some wear on the neck plate but nary a ding anywhere on the body, surprising when this guitar was my main gig guitar for many years. Still completely stock as well as I never felt the need to change the bridge pickup. Always sounded great through a Boss HM-2 pedal.

So there you go. Hope you all enjoyed the story and back next week with another from my collection. Probably not as detailed stories as this one and the PGM90th but still.

One of the best looking Ibanez guitars I've seen and it's all to do with THAT colour. Very nice!!

I really like that guitar, great history! Gaudy pups would rock in it, but sentimentality has mojo!

That's the best orange I've ever seen on a guitar.

Awesome.
