Maple Neck RGs

Appart from the RG350MDX, 550DX, and 770DX, what other Ibanez RGs come with a maple neck? I really like the look of the 770DX, but I can't find one in the UK. ;-;

Re: Maple Neck RGs

I think you mean fingerboard, right? Lots of Ibanez models have maple necks as far as I can tell, just not maple fingerboards.

Sorry, FRETboard.

Re: Maple Neck RGs

Indeed. Almost all necks are maple, you obviously mean fretboard. Very few NEW Ibanez come with them. In fact I can only think of the RG 20th.

The Paul Gilbert sig comes to mind as well.

Oh yeah, forgot about the PGM. And that 350 is the Musician's Friend or Sam Ash exclusive, or something... correct? That looks like a pretty nice guitar for the cash.

Re: Maple Neck RGs

Yeah, I have a Tele with Maple board, and it feels so clean and crisp. I also have ebony boarded guitar, and its awesome for single note runs (not so much for slides) and of course have my RG with Rosewood. Its too bad their isn't options to get it done.

Re: Maple Neck RGs

Thanks Guys! And yes, I meant fingerboard/fretboard. I actually have the ****** Exclusive RG350MDX in White with maple fretboard. It's awesome. I really like the look of the RG550 but I can't find it anywhere in the UK.

Used options off the top of my head are:

RG550
RG565
RG670DX
RG770DX

Here's a few of mine (everything but a 565 here):

Re: Maple Neck RGs

I'm actually thinking about buying a new maple fretboard guitar that's not Ibanez, but is similar to one. Like a Jackson, or a Kramer etc.

I really like the DK2M Pro.

Is it a good guitar?

Re: Maple Neck RGs

Hey what about left handed Ibanez guitars w/ maple fingerboard, did they just make the 550L? Looking to find a lefty neck and put it on my right handed body for reverse headstock look.
