RG identification

Which model is this?

http://apollo.piramk.fi/~b0301801/ibanez/PICT0010.JPG

It canīt be RG547 or 548 because they both have 3 Pick ups. The PUs in that one arenīt original.

Re: RG identification

Looks like a RG620 but those had quilted/flamed tops. Is the trem original (installed from Ibanez).

Regards

André

Re: RG identification

IMHO, that body has large PU cavities, like those with PU rings.
So, it's a modded one.
Maybe a new wood veener/top and refin? Who knows?

RG620 has a 3-way switch. I donīt know about the bridge.

Those PU cavities are large because the PUs were originally most probably V7 & V8 and those PUs require large cavities. The PUs are also direct mounted. I donīt think itīs a modded one.

I donītknow the serial, but the seller says itīs from 1996 so I guess the serial is F96xxxxx. Yes, itīs AANJ.

You canīt really see the serial: http://apollo.piramk.fi/~b0301801/ibanez/PICT0014.JPG

Notice that the neck doesīt have that skunk stripe in the middle.

Re: RG identification

It's an RG547AH RBR .

It's in the '96 Ibanez catalogue which says it's got an Ash Body, Wizard II maple neck,Jumbo Frets,original Edge trem and the pickups are two IBZ V6F's and an IBZ RTS single-coil.

They also did this model in a natural Ash finish.

Very nice guitar.

EDIT: Oops! Didn't notice the lack of a middle pickup! Apart from that it's identical to the 547.
The only way to be sure is to remove the neck and it'll say what model it is in the neck-pocket.

Yeah, I noticed that guitar too, but indeed, there isnīt any middle pick up on this one.
