Re: New member with RG390 question.
Ahh yes, Carlsboro in the 80s. Yes they did have some choice guitars. Although back then all I could afford from them was a Charvette 250. Dare I mention that here? Later I got an ESP Kamikaze from them but that was awful.
I even had a Jackson in my collection, but that and the ESP were sold as soon as I got my Ibanez. Even though the Jackson was nice it couldn't hold a candle to the RG.
Taking RG for a set up tomorrow, the first one it's needed in almost 10 years. It played beautifully right out of the box.
Here's another question. In the Ibanez brochure that was linked to above, it states that the body is Resoncast. I'm not sure this is so. With the back plate removed, I'm sure some wood grain is visible in the trem routing. And on the back of the body, you can see a bit of an uneven finish under the paint that looks like woodgrain due to it's age. You know when the wood has dried/settled fully or whatever. Much the same as on my SG.
Hmmm, curioser and curioser.
Thanks for the help guys.
