Yes. One of Ibanez's best guitars, the RGT220A (also, the RGT320Q), has an Edge Pro and is neck through.

Xiphos is Neck Through and has an Edge III (OFR compatible supposedly).

More importantly, one with paint that doesn't showcase those ugly stripes

earlier RGTs had a full flame-top covering the neck-through. Blue or Red sunburst. I think they changed it to show off the neck-through construction. Some of these are still available NOS.



from Rich's site:
http://www.ibanezrules.com/new/rgt3020.htm

they main differences between this and the current RGT320 are:
full top vs partial
Pups (Dimarzio PaF vs Dimarzio IBZ)
inlays (offset vs center dot)
neck (Ultra vs some type of Wizard)

It sounds like dropping a OFR into a Xiphos would be the easiest. Now what are the chances of a black xiphos like mohammed suicmez's ever coming out? lol

Probably pretty high seeing as how alot of his latest customs have been jet black and that would be cheaper paint wise obviously, than the the flipflop style paint.

The RGT3020 (pictured above) was from '04 and has the Edge Pro. I bought one and couldn't be happier.
