NGD 1989 RG560 Question

Do all the RG560 have Ibanez on the 4 bolt neck plate?
I got one, serial number checks out MIJ sticker RG560 sticker etc etc, Trem looks right but it has a plain 4 bolt neck plate no Ibanez on it.

I can't see your pictures, but it may be my work computer. 1989 was before they started using the AANJ style neck joint... Should have a regular 4-bolt neck plate with Ibanez on it.

Re: NGD 1989 RG560 Question

I still have both an 1989 Rg560 (lipstick red) and an 1989 Rg570 (black), both that I bought new in 89.

Both of them have "Ibanez Made in Japan" stamped 4 bolt neck plate, but interestingly, neither of them had the IBZ stamped pickups. I changed the bridge pickups long ago to Seymour Duncan Full Shred, but still have the original middle and neck pickups installed.

That being said, mine seem to be both much later in the year / production than yours, as their serials start with 909 on the 550, and 912 on the 570.

Other than those differences, everything else looks the same.

Re: NGD 1989 RG560 Question

My guess is.... (based on the pickups ) they look like the early crappy screened ones from my 1987
the original neck was broken and or sold and replaced with a neck from an '89

eh like i said it's a guess
all in all the only thing in question is the neck plate everything else looks good to me

that V2 is a pretty good pickup too

Thanks to everyone so far, maybe these will help?
The 91 on the pot is interesting does that mean 1991 or 89(9) first moth(1) or is it just a number.
At this point I am just on a fact finding mission.

I've seen a few RG560's on online classifieds sites dated 1987 onwards that have the 4 bolt neck plate with "Made in Japan" but no "Ibanez", if that helps.
