My RGR580DW

I probably posted an NGD some months ago (almost a year ago actually) when I got this guitar, but I'd like to gloat and show her off a bit

RGR580s are one of the coolest guitars Ibanez has ever released imo. Reverse head, Mahogany body, maple board (with either a late 90s wizard neck, or MIJ Wizard II). They weren't made for THAT long and the only color to survive all 4 years was Jewel Blue Burst (JBB). Pearl white (98-99) and Deep wine (00-01) had very limited production runs, which makes them pretty hard to find. I have both

But anyway, I wanted to show off some pics of the deep wine color since I took some outdoor pics a couple weeks ago. Keep in mind, this color scheme was used on some Pro-lines back in the mid-80s and the MIJ RG470s in the mid 90s, but hasn't been used (AFAIK) since 00-01 on the RGR580. The borders are so dang hard to catch in pictures, which is why I took these outdoor pics. The first two pics show how hard it is to get from a distance or indoors, but the 2nd two pics show just how cool it looks.

One of the coolest guitars Ibanez has ever made (IMHO of course).

Price?

Well being that this is the only one I've seen pop up, and I paid 75000 yen for it (imo way over market value, but i wanted this color BAD), there isn't a whole lot to go on. I even tried to haggle the price down a bit but the shop I got it from (Guitar Planet in Tokyo) wouldn't budge. they said "even at this price, it will sell." So yeah, it's really hard to find.

As for the RGR580 line itself, the jewel blue burst ones pop up pretty often, but the PL (pearl white) and DW... Let's just say that I own the only 1 of each of those that has popped up anywhere in Japan in the last 6 years.

You're not alone brother. I wish they would do a reissue of these like the new 550s coming out for next year. I'm sure if they released pearl white or DW, they would sell.

I would snap up the pearl white one so fast if they did.

Re: My RGR580DW

Here's my pearl white one. The clear has yellowed so it DOES look cream instead of white, but it plays like a dream. This one is a 98 model with a wizard neck (the DW has the MIJ wizard II)
