Pics of a red RG3120 - anyone got any?

I'm looking for good pictures of a red RG3120... it most likely will be my next acquisition, but I'm having a hard time deciding on the color.. the blue one is everywhere, but good pics of the red one are hard to come by... so I cant really compare the two.
anyone got any?

thx..

Sorry, no pics... but last time I was in Boston... the GC on the BU campus had at least one red one... 2-3 I think. *To be honest, color preferences aside... I think the "tops" looked much better on the blue ones. *It could be luck of the draw, but the ones I saw were typical Ibanez tops that don't show through well at all.

Yea.. i saw the blue one in person, and I thought its top was a little dark and lacked definition, like you said. *I would have thought the red ones would be a little livelier.

Of course, if it was a perfect world, we would have access to this beauty:


but, it's a japanese model ... booohoohoo

Try looking on the Japanese Ibanez page.

www.ibanez.co.jp

I think I saw one there.

thats the rg770fm... worthy of many buckets of drool, but not available here, and the picture ain't too good either.. there is a pic on the american market site, but it's also small and crappy..

i think i'll check out ebay...

glekm has pics. there is a topic in OTHER 6 STRINGS about a blonde prestige TX and the link to the pics, go to the part for rg3120tr. there are some really nice shots. actually those shots made me consider getting one but i just acquired a S470TR(trans-red w/ tuneomatic bridge & stop-tailpiece) and that will do for now.

yeah, those are probaly the best pics i've seen of the rg3120tr.

about the 470S, it's a '92 i believe. the serial number is F21.... something. it's just a trans red 470S w/ a tune-o-matic instead of a trem. they usually show up on ebay every now and again and i've also seen them in trans blue also. it says made in japan on the back of the headstock and heel plate, but i don't know if that means just the parts or actually manufactured and assembled in japan. it has V1, V2, S1 *PU's and the 6 inline headstock.

Well being from a Military Address and living in Japan I can get my hands on one and ship for a pretty cheap price. When I sold my Jem7DBK to my friend in the states it ran about 52.00 to Ohio on priority! The local music store here always has some of the Japanese RG's in stock!

I just started a thread about the one I bought on Friday. *Here is a link:

http://jemsiteforum.com/board/topic....&topic=258

I think I have a pretty darn good pic of one, and it is in that thread......

BTW, it looks a hell of a lot better than the old blue...
