Talking RG Indentifying HELP!

I just picked up this RG last week.

It had been "sitting" for a while.

Got it all cleaned up and restrung.

Just a few cosmetic "issues".

Paid $175 including lifetime repairs!

(my guitar teacher works at a music store and found it for me!)

It has a Lo-TRS Trem system.

V7-S1-V8 Pick-ups.

Serial Number: CE F0038006 JAPAN

Also a jack "plate" as opposed to built in.

Wizard neck ... not sure which type ...

All the hardware is gun-metal grey.

I have a few more pictures if needed.

Can you help me out?

BTW ...

New to this forum.

Came highly recommended by a friend.

A wealth of Ibanez info!

Thanks!

J.

Wow ... You are FAST!

Thank You!

Yeah ...

It looks EXACTLY like this one I found on a previous thread:

http://www.jemsite.com/forums/showth...ighlight=RG470

Can you tell me anything about this particular model?

Curious as to if it's a Wizard or Wizard II neck ...

So i did OK for $175.00 ???

I am a beginning guitar player so seems like a nice start!

Although this is my third guitar purchase in less than a year!

Trying to asborb as much info as possible on all things guitar!

Re: RG Indentifying HELP!

They have 550 wizard I necks. the only real downside is the trem.

Re: RG Indentifying HELP!

You looked like you were writing poetry on your original post.

Yeah, it's a 470.

Re: RG Indentifying HELP!

MIJ Ibanez's came with Lo-TRS's? Really? Wow. I thought they only came on the Korean guitars.

Should be a decent guitar dude. The trem sucks though.

Back in the 90's the MIJ tag actually sold well and this was a transition model, the MIJ trs was a takieuchi trem labelled 'ibanez lo trs I', hence the korean lo trs II.

Re: RG Indentifying HELP!

I thought the MIJ RG470s after 1996 came with a Japanese made Wizard II???

And the LO-TRS variant found on the Japanese guitars is actually ok. It should serve you well.

Re: RG Indentifying HELP!

Some did and some didnt, I think the MIJ W2s didnt have the silver writing on them.

Take it apart and you can find out for sure.

It has the "crome" logo and a slightly angled headstock.
