Thats a real nice one... Most that I've seen (like mine) got really dark over time. Great guitars though!! Enjoy!

Re: NGD upcoming: RG520QS Trans Blue

My first and favorite Ibanez was a brown 520. I'm looking forward to this as it will be the cleanest Ibanez I've ever owned, except the RGA321 prestige I owned for less than a month. Just a boring guitar, that was.

you bet. Gotta wait for PayPal to get the money from my bank, then shipping so it'll probably be about a week or little more. But y'all will be the first to know :-)

Congrats. These are super nice guitars. I've got a dead mint 1999 rg520qs...this gives me a ballpark in terms of value as I was contemplating selling. Best of luck with it...i'm sure you'll like it when it arrives.

I must admit I feel I overpaid...I made that offer and he accepted in less than an hour! Oh well, the condition is pretty darn good and it's stock, so I can't complain too much. Just wish I'd a aimed lower;P

play the hell out of it and don't look back. if it's a nice guitar and you're happy who cares if you paid a little over market value (not saying you did...but even if that were the case). i've knowingly over paid for stuff and have also gotten great deals as well on other things. it all evens out in the end; at least that's what i tell myself

Don't sweat the price... I've seen them go for less, but thats the best looking finish I've ever seen on on a blue/green 520qs. Not sure if it was something in the clear coat or what, but all others I've seen have been very dark. Mine looks black unless you get it in the right light.

Like this...



But in the right light they look good too...



So think of yours as a very rare one. Besides, they are fantastic guitars! Hope you enjoy it!!

Re: NGD upcoming: RG520QS Trans Blue

I have a 99 in trans black. It is one heck of a nice guitar! I swapped numerous pickups in and out of it and all of them sounded better in it than in my other guitars.

It will not be going anywhere any time soon.

I always saw them as a poor man's rg3120

Thanks man... I would highly recommend one! Great guitars! However, in the mix with the rest of your collection it may not stand out as nicely as it does amongst mine... lol!

Well maybe, only because the 685 and 560 stand out among my ibanezes

I disagree, No matter how many guitars I have- a 520 would be a huge addition to my "collection". It's a 3120 with pup rings......

Re: NGD upcoming: RG520QS Trans Blue

Ive never played a 3120 (my dream guitar), but I always thought the maple cap on them was substantial, unlike the sapele veneer on these.

Believe it or not I'd much prefer a darker one like the one posted above, if only because I've seen so many lousy import guitars with that tealish finish. it will arrive Friday and I'll post plenty of pictures. Here's hoping that the seller used extremely good lighting in the pictures, so it doesn't really look that light in person.

as a side note, I say the 3120 is my dream guitar, but in reality I've never loved a prestige neck like I love the super wizard on this era Ibanez. They're too thin to really sound that great, but as far as playability they are the best I've ever touched.
