I reckon i might get another 35 years out of it now ;-)
Yes, the combination of a C shape with a flatter fingerboard radius is pretty damn nice. In general, the quality of neck build in this period is seriously good, imo. I also like the old blade headstock, don't get the hate. Frank Falbo once described the guitars as having great build quality and pickups you don't feel bad about pulling out, sums it up pretty well.

A question: what kind of finish does the neck have on yours? Is it oil or something else? I'm wondering because most of the Deluxe and Prolines from the same year have oiled becks, while some of the other models have painted or a glossier natural finish.

The neck was just the standard gloss finish, i used a scotchbrite pad a few years back just to lightly dull that and make it less Ďstickyí Feels grea now.

Re: Post pics of your own Custom modded Ibanez.

I also just finished my customized Ibanez... RG550LTD (year 1997):












It was a boring BK black model

Re: Post pics of your own Custom modded Ibanez.

So I don't post as much anymore. Not that I did to begin with. I have a few Lower end Ibanez's that I probably put too much money into but it was fun Regardless. You can't fix everything a company does to cut corners to lower the price but you can upgrade many. These guitars are good examples. Still you need to be smart where you spend your money. At the end of the day the model doesn't change.

RG370DX was in pristine condition but suffered the typical issues. played it for awhile. The tremolo was trash. Got a PRO from Rich. Was better but not fully stable so not trustworthy. Time goes by and I get inspired by some skins from Inzane Skins. Just a top cover. Not cleared. Decided I would make a conversation / dedication guitar to my late father in law who was career Airforce. Will do another for my father who was career Army but I need a black guitar for that. After doing the Wrap the black pickups had to go. It screamed Chrome to me. So didn't want to spend too much considering it wasn't stable at the time. a favorite cheap pickup is a Dragonfire screamer so I install it all. Then I learn a trick to easily do post AND sleeve replacement. The trem was too well thought of to not make it 100% right. Hardened posts go in and presto. I can whammy away!!!! Awesome player now!!

Next a PS60 Iceman. Another pristine guitar to start. Fell in love with the color and like the RG the Chromed out look called to me. Wasn't a great player but was just OK. Lot of little tweaks went in to find the sweet spot. Now she rips. New pups, rings, knobs and pu select. Pups are Seymour Duncan 59 set.
