RG-ART Guitar Registry - tracking these guitars

That would be for another thread

No attempts have been made to determine 'specs' of any of these, just the numbers please.

No Shawn, you are still not cool. *You shall never reach "coolness" until the day that you finally hand over your RG-GEAR to it's rightful owner: me. *

Here's another ART... it's the one on ebay from the UK. I promised the seller an ebay link in exchange. Sellers sometimes hesitate to give such details.

yeah, I asked him about that number aswell as why in the title he calls it both a J-custom and a prestige. I got a reply calling me a "sad anorak type of guy that needs to get out more" (only, it was in CAPS!!)

He did also state though in his insulting missive that he was told the guys at "Guitarhangar.com hazarded the guess at 40 for the one they had on their site and Uk Ibanez importers said this would be about right ish."

Then indirectly he got that # from me because when GH called me I told them 40-48. [course I also told them worth about $1500 but they do what they want with pricing and have never taken any advice, sometimes I wonder WFT they bother asking]

I talked to Rick (owner of GH) about the RG-ART he had. It was in his shop on consignment. The pricing wasn't really his doing; save your rips for the guy who brought it into Rick's place.

I also talked to him and said that my best guess was "12 or 24....Ibanez likes the number 12, so it's probably some variation of 12. No one has exact or accurate production totals on these, not even Hoshino."

Now, I don't know *when* Rick passed that info along (before or after talking with the seller.
I think Simon contacted "ibanezking" as well, with much the same response that Spagbol got, so I'd guess the owner is the dolt; not GH.

Pretty bold guess considering the front page only has 18 listed...and only 4 "maybes".

Actually it's an extremely educated guess based on the serial # batches. When you crawl out from under your rock let me know

Just got an apologising email from the chap selling the ART. Seems the sharpness of tone etc. was borne of dealing with many frustrating ebayers asking stupid questions etc. rather than just plain rudeness and nothing to do with questioning where he got his figures etc. Sorry for the off topic post but didn't want the guy to have a bad rep just from one lousy email...

I'm not trying to disagree, seriously, but why always '12'? Is there any documentation to show Ibanez using that production total in the past to any extent? Just curious, as I don't really know where that number came from.

In a way, I don't blame him. Sometimes selling stuff on ebay is torture. SO many people will email you just to try and get misinformation that they can use against you. Why? I don't know, maybe everyone thinks they will get something for free.
