Re: OMFG?!

Eww...I don't like that. The finish isn't that great, and I prefer a H-S-H configuration.

Re: OMFG?!

But, It's a USA Custom, lol.

Aren't USA customs a little on the rare side?

It's ugly. Stick with the RG550.

Re: OMFG?!

Go see the guy and at least check the guitar out. If the guitar's in good shape buy it, if it has a few dings on the body, try to haggle the price.

Re: OMFG?!

I wonder why the guy who stuck that up thought 4 of the same photo was better than 1.

Re: OMFG?!

By the look of it, it's a USRG30TP, if my eyes are deceiving me and it doesn't have binding on the neck, it'll be a USRG20TP. Either way, they pop up occasionally on the bay, the 30 seems more common than the 20 even though the 30 is a higher spec. Technically it's a Dave Bunker guitar licensed by Ibanez. I've got the USRG10TP which seems to be rare as hens teeth, especially since they're not supposed to be bound, but every TP finished one i've seen is.

THere's a load of bumpf on this website if you search for it under the above model numbers.

COuld be wrong, but I don't think I am.

Re: OMFG?!

USRG30TP, just like blackspaven said. Worth every bit of $800 if the finish isn't too faded and it's not beat to hell.

Re: OMFG?!

Dude, you're excited because these are rare and you have nothing to gauge the price against. This is NOT that great of a deal. You can get these for as low as $650 on the bay sometimes. It's not a big deal. I'd advise you to pass on it and spend your money on something better.

Re: OMFG?!

It's a USRG with one of those PBC tension free necks.

They were in the 91 or 92 Ibanez Catalogue...can't be too rare.

Sorry to correct you - the years of manufacturing were 1994-1996. For more information, see here: http://www.jemsite.com/usa/index.htm#usrg
