Re: Which Prestige models have HxH pickups?

rg1520, rg1527, rg1527z, rg1420, rg1421, rg920qm (not prestige but almost as good), rg3520ze (has EMG's), rg2228, rg2620, rg2077x, rg4520z, rgd2120z, rgd2127z, rga420z, rga427z, fr1620.

theres a ton more but thats all i know off the top of my head. mostly 6 strings in there but 5 are seven strings and 1 is an 8 string. not all are sold in america either

Re: Which Prestige models have HxH pickups?

didnt read the "not counting obscure models" part. the best option is an rg1420, rg1421, rg1520, rg1527(z), rg920 and rg2620 (rg2610 only has a bridge humbucker if your interested). and i think the fr1620 is decent priced as well. some are discontinued but a couple are sill aroud. all are available SOMEWHERE though

Re: Which Prestige models have HxH pickups?

Not to hijack the thread but I wonder, in general, why the hell the passive pickup fixed bridge RGA's were s-canned. The Prestige models in particular. They seem to enjoy some degree of popularity. The non-Prestige ones are good quality so maybe Ibanez figures "what's the point" in having a Prestige. But do ALL of the non-Prestige models need to have active pickups?!? And pickup rings? Seriously!

Whoa that's quite a list, thanks.

I'm looking for an HxH Prestige and it looks like most of them have a flame maple top, which I'm not a fan of. I've been looking at JPMs but most have been out of my price range so I wanted to see what other models I should be looking for.

rg1520 is the best option for you. i think its mahogany too and their a great deal. i think theres a yellow and a blue one on ed roman's website (not to take business away from rich or anything but i dont think he has one. if he does, GET ONE FROM HIM!!!)

I'd take my chances with a crackhead burnout from Hollywood before I'd buy anything from Roman.

Re: Which Prestige models have HxH pickups?

Unless you have a problem pickguards, you could always get a 550, 1550, etc., and change the pickguard to an HH. That's what I did to my RG2550z.

Re: Which Prestige models have HxH pickups?

Well...then it sounds like the RG1520A or RG2620 would be right up your alley. The RG2620 really looks nothing like the 2610, though. It's got that weird cubed finish....at least it did before they changed to the Edge Zero.

If you want a fixed bridge, then the RGA or FR are, AFAIK, the only ones that are available without a flamed/figured maple top. RGAs are mahogany/maple, and the FRs are ash.
