Re: RG-GOLD - Shinny glittering gold

Next time when I change strings, I will check the back of the neck at the AANJ. There should be some type of stamp or numbers which can shed some light to the mystery about this RG-GOLD1.

Re: RG-GOLD - Shinny glittering gold

Hey David, can you tell me where in HK you found that ? Was it just a Tom lee or a specialist store, cause I lived in HK for a year and never found many other guitar shops besides Tom lee.. ??

The store where I bought this was indeed Tom Lee. Few years later I've seen a pair of RG-PAINT at their main store.

In recent years they no longer carry J-C, not because they don't want to but Ibanez stopped sending them to HK period.

You are right about Tom Lee being the only store left selling Ibanez nowadays. Tsang Fook Music used to be the dealer for Ibanez in the 80s and they had all the classic Jems (BFP, VSK, DY). But after the 90's Tom Lee got the Ibanez sole distributorship. I've seen an RG-ART and one RG-ARCH at Tsang Fook but they don't take good care of them. I almost bought this RG-ARCH but it was quite banged up with so many chips and dings, yet they wouldn't drop the price. No wonder Tom Lee got the dealership at the end.

Re: RG-GOLD - Shinny glittering gold

I meant in general. In this case no, as he brings gifts of pictures to tempt the mods to not drop the banhammer!

In other cases, c'mon? There have been so many other necro-thread bumps it's rediculous.
