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.
