NGD: RG760 EG

Though I don't need more guitars I couldn't resist this one.
A 92 RG760 with emerald green finish, the first year with Lo-Pro and direct mounted pickups.
Very good condition, there is no fret wear, a little hairline crack at the neck joints' upper side, no crack at the neck, and it was the previous and original owner's backup guitar.
The chainsaw hard case, all tools and even the serial no stickers was included. The previous owner had Evo at bridge and fast track 1 at neck, but he always kept the original pickups which have no fades at the logo. As a big fan of the F2, I put the original pickups back, so now it's in original condition.

Btw it's very difficult to get the colors right on the photos, it looks more green, deeper and wetter in reality.

Re: NGD: RG760 EG

Wow tony, that is absolutely awesome. It looks like it just came off the showroom wall. I have the same model, but mine was (and still is) a complete disaster. I hope to get it as nice as yours someday.....................

So are 'ya gonna play it or hang it up??

I play all my guitars. This one is a bliss to play as well. And sounds very very good.

Not only a 760, but a 760 EG.

Obviously out of curiosity, I had to see what was stamped in the neck joint.
This was before I put the original pickups back.
And the iPhone had no chance to make the color near green at all.

The seller was working in a music store back in the early 90's and he told me they almost never sold RG7x0's, but the 5x0's sold a lot, so it was probably why Ibanez discontinued the RG7x0's

Re: NGD: RG760 EG

Sweet guitar Tony! It's too bad it took them so long to make direct-mount RG760's and 770's and then they discontinued them almost immediately. I believe that the 760 was only sold in 1992. I had a '93 RG770 that Ryc now has.
