JCRG Gear1 Questions

Been trying to source a J Custom Gear1 for a while. Was wondering if any of you guys own one or have owned one in the past? I think it may possibly have been the most expensive J Custom to date and maybe the rarest? I know the design on the body was laser cut. Anyway it's a very exclusive guitar and very hard to come by.

Re: JCRG Gear1 Questions

hello

i have played that guitar and its amazing.it is almost the same as the rg metal.great tone great playability. i love it a lot.the first line of j-customs are in my opinion the best.
rg metal/gold/art/gear.i think they are the best ibanez guitars ever.there is a gold on eb*y now.these guitars are very rare 6 or 12 made of each models.

Re: JCRG Gear1 Questions

Thanks guys! I'm basically looking to buy a 'biggie' next year sometime however there are 3 or 4 contenders with the Gear being one of them. What I was looking for really was some opinions on it and a ballpark figure. I didn't even know Rich had one in so thanks JS!

Brian you wouldn't happen to have an item number for that Gold that is on the bay by any chance? That may be worth a look for sure. I think the most accepted figure for the Golds is that there were 6 made of each however I've had some guys insist that there were only 3. I only know of 3 Gold 2's in existence but I'm sure there are 3 more somewhere. I already own a JCRG Gold 2 as I'm sure you probably know. Cheers!!

Re: JCRG Gear1 Questions

Came across that Gold 2 you were talking about Brian. That's interesting....... Not a bad price as well. I'm pretty sure that shop has or had a Gold 1 in as well but I can't see it in their other items.

Re: JCRG Gear1 Questions

I had 5 J custom before. The best model I think is neck-thru J Custom, like RG9570 and RG21. That's really a dream guitar!

I'm in the same boat Brian, too many guitars mate! I have to sell if I'm gonna buy. I just bought a Caparison Horus last week as well. If I hadn't I could easily have picked up that Gold. I was only aware of the Gold yesterday... damn!! I gotta sell to buy at the minute as well. I'll keep you updated. I know where there is a JCRG Paint 4 going as well. Pretty cheap too. Guy who was selling it didn't really know what it was. I dropped him a line about it.

Supernightwish. Which 5 J customs did you own mate? Why did you part with them? I couldn't bring myself to sell one never mind 5.

Re: JCRG Gear1 Questions

Is it Gold or Silver? I know there are 2 RG2570's out in Vital Gold and Vital Silver, maybe it's one of them?

Re: JCRG Gear1 Questions

Nice. Yeah that was the early 2570 with the silver headstock. They brought out the 2570 with the black headstock/prestige logo a year or so after I think.

Re: JCRG Gear1 Questions

I have one

Yes it's a great great instrument!!! I love it, and I think it's cool it has a different pickup combo than other J-Csutom.. The Super III and FRED sound GREAT!

It's a bit weird that it does not have the arm rest, but you get used to it...

I don't play it very often, but a great collector I won't let go soon
