My latest aquisition :)

Got this off my brother yesterday, he brought it in '96 under the impression it was an Rg470, played it for about a year then i adopted it for the next 10 years untill he decided he wanted it back to learn again couldnt grasp it and rang me up and said he'd swap it for my old mountain bike... of course, i bit his hand off, did a bit of research and found it to be an RG547 AH RBR which was MIJ in 95

unfortunately there are a few chips on the edges but what ibanez of this age is perfect, right? would like to get a new gold edge and knobs as the gold has worn and is oxidising in places and the body casting around the bottom knife edge near the arm broke off at one point and was glued back on (the pointed bit that sits outside the post). But besides that i've given it a spruce up and cleaned the fingerboard, tuned her to C and she's rockin!

Here's a few pics (sorry about quality)

And the 96 catalogue:

Always nice to see a rare RG. Cream and black zebra pickups would look nice in this one.
