NGD IBANEZ J CUSTOM RG GOLD-1 (++RG GOLD-2)

Finally. Been after one of these for ages after picking up a JCRG Gold-2 several years ago. J Custom RG Gold 1 is a 1999 model, pretty rare guitar. Finish is Gold Leaf applied to an Ash body which has then been clearcoated. Wizard neck, Lo Pro Edge, Gold Back Plates, Standard JC Dimarzio Tone Zone, Air Norton, Blue Velvet pups.

A massive thanks to Nando (Jemsite ID: Mainframe) for selling this guitar to me. Nando was great to deal with, fantastic comms and swift shipping, guitar was packed like a tank.

Okay here are dee pics:

Cheers Taorama and Tubarao, much appreciated!! Been trying to buy one of these for a few years now, nearly got one a while back but the Ibanez representative in Thailand beat me to one I nearly had a deal sealed on!! I kept on buying other J Customs but really wanted this model. So here are better pics of the JCRG Gold 2 which started it all off:

Re: NGD IBANEZ J CUSTOM RG GOLD-1 (++RG GOLD-2)

Thanks fellas, your comments are much appreciated!!!

@just4kinks: I think the generally accepted figure on the RG Golds is that there are 6 of each, 6 JCRG Gold 1 and 6 JCRG Gold 2. Like you have done on the Urushi's I've gathered a good few of the serial numbers on each model and so far everyone I've been able to track falls within the 6 of each total.

Here she is versus the Uzi-Urushi 9mm.

Man, I love the prestige of them and all that, and I bet they are some of the finest ibanez's around, but I gotta say Im not the hugest fan of that color on them

BUT, that said, nice score! congrats!
