Question on Ibanez RG2920ZAUTGE Prestige (pics)

Hello all,

has anybody ever heard of this particular model? I have never seen this Ibanez ever before and I find it extremely gorgeous. My google results were pretty limited for it :/, I'm wondering if any of you folks know what year it was made? if it was a limited run? anybody have any piece of information on it? I am asking because I have a chance of buying it from a somebody who doesn't know any details on it.

Much appreciated if anyone does, cheers!

I've seen that model at Shimamura before. It's Tiger's eye or something like that. Limited production model, along with the S model with the same finish. Saw one used recently over here also.

IT was a spoot model for the Japanese market 2012.
Not very limited and in the 2012 catalogue.

4mm maple top, 43mm mahogany body (normal size).
Wizard HP neck.

Amazing looking guitar.

The one I have is mid 2013, and unless you have a spec sheet I'd bet the top is just a veneer. They never do plastic binding on real tops, only on veneers.

It says 4mm in the catalogue, other than that do I not really know.
I think the quilt are a veneer on a maple top.

It was as a spot model in the 2012 Japanese catalogue, if they did build it 2013 too do I think it just says that it was even less limited than it came out as.

Other distributors saw the spot and ordered a run for last year IMO. Just because it's limited in one country doesn't mean it'll stay that way to the world.

I'd have to pull the neck to be sure, but somebody will have to buy it before I do that kind of work on it

Well 2000 series usually means veneer but it could also mean plain maple top with a veneer over that. I have an RG2120X and it has a plain maple top.

Uh, it was REALLY limited here dude. I saw it at 2 shops in all of Japan right after it came out, Shimamura here in Nagoya and Kurosawa. It wasn't all that common.
