Re: NGD - Ibanez RT 240VS

Here's a link to the 1992 US supplement catalog. These guitars were introduced in the US at Summer NAMM '92.

Here's the 1992 EU Catalog for the RT & RG series. Looks like the '92 RT240 had an HSS configuration.

And finally, here's the '93 EU catalog page for the RT series. They list an RT250 with nearly the same specs as the US RT450 - HSH pickup configuration. The only difference is the pickups are "V6S" rather than V7/V8 in the US model.

What's weird to me is that the pickups in the RT series do not *look* like V7/V8s. And Europe got an AWESOME amber flame color option on the RT650!

Re: NGD - Ibanez RT 240VS

Ok, now I was totally curious so I went ahead and popped the neck loose and snapped a few photos and much to my surprise it says "RT 450" on both the neck and the neck pocket. The neck stamp says it all unless they used bodies stamped "450" in the European market for the 250. Like you pointed out, the 240 was an HSS config. so this is definitely not a 240 as mentioned. Hmmmm, the plot thickens. BTW, the pickups are listed as V6. So, I'm going to start calling this a 450 until proven otherwise. I might post this info on the IbanezCollectorsWorld to see what kind of trouble we can stir up

Sorry I can't figure out how to embed the photo. The code link doesn't cooperate.

Hi Axe Chemist,

Whilst the 240 was a SSH config they All used the same 450 bodies.Least mine do anyway!!! ;-) I've got a couple of each (240's and 450's).

Funny thing is...all have 450 bodies. 2 necks are stamped with 240 and two 450....get this though....one neck on the 240 was stamped 450 and one stamped 240...and one neck on a 450 stamped 240..one 450!!!!!

I'd love to find a 452 (The 12 string) keep looking over hear in the GB.

I so love these RT guitars. The neck is very similar to the JS. Fit's my hands perfectly!!!

I also love the alder sound. I've got a mixture of pickups. Breed, Evolution and Paf Pro combo's. They sound totsl class. Keep promising myself the Andy Timmons combo for one of the 240's!!

Cheers SiGGy

That is simply awesome! Funny thing is that I saw this photo in another thread and played around with it in Microsoft Paint to create different color versions to see what I would like better. I ultimately chose the pearl white pickguard like yours!
