A little help

Guys, I just got this new Prestige, but it doesn't have any other identifier on it. Do you have any idea of what model it is? Thank you.

I tried to get the lighting right, but it's a textured silver finish.

Thanks. I bought it off a dude from Craigslist for $400. cash, and it's mint. From what I can tell I did pretty well, I just wanted to verify that it was a Prestige and not a lesser model with a Prestige neck, etc.

those appear to be upgraded pickups also, except the single coil. Dimarzio possibly

Re: A little help

Well, nice one, get a good setup and enjoy. Just make sure to be careful with the finish. I've only seen Vital Gold ones, but the finish seems to rub off fairly easily.

Re: A little help

you got a great deal dude. I have one just like it, (except I still have the original Dimario/Ibanez pickups) : -( I payed 999 Can a couple years back. As far as the finish, It has a tendency to wear off under the pups, if you use your pinky to anchor. You might want to slap on a pick gaurd..... a nice mirror pick gaurd like mine. It looks awesome.
