Need Help

I saw a really weird Ibanez today.

It was an older guitar in great shape.
It had an RG neck on it.

It had 3 pickups all together directly in front of the Trem.

You could split the pickups for singles or Humbucker.

And the back of the body was sculpted oddly.

Bright orange.

Hope my description helps. Does anyone know what it was?

Re: Need Help

That's a 540 Power model. The triple coil is the more coveted of these. Out of curiosity, how much did they want for it?

Here's the 1988 catalog pages:

If that guitar is still in good shape and the price is right, you might pick it up if for no other reason than to resell it.

Re: Need Help

The guitar was probably 8 or 9 on mint scale of 10

And they want $500.00

What do you guys think its worth?

Re: Need Help

I'd say yes. I've seen mint ones go for $700 or more.

Re: Need Help

If anyone is interested in buying this guitar it is at Musicgoround in North Houston.

When you call in to order you can probably speak to Rusty Cooley, he is giving lessons there.

I'm not gonna buy it, I ordered a Gibson Firebird VII instead.
