Re: RG re-issue announced for summer '08 NAMM

Ha, same thing the first reply on the Ibanez forum said. I think we all immediately thought of the 770.

RGR 565 would be even better

A 565R in DY or LNG would be most excellent, as long as it has the matching headstock and dot inlays, and a maple board. Oh, and an original edge trem, too.
If that happens, I'm buying one of each.

Re: RG re-issue announced for summer '08 NAMM

Not much of a jump to go from reissue 550's to reissue 770's, eh? Just a different route, different inlay, colored pickups, and a clear pickguard, right?
Based on Rich's "250 of each" I'm guessing it's the 770DX as well.
Worst kept secret since the ending of Star Trek 3.

Re: RG re-issue announced for summer '08 NAMM

Well whatever it is, one thing we know for sure.... some will be happy while others whine & complain that Ibby's not making their favorite model, like they're the center of the universe. sigh.

One thing we can be pretty sure of..... a black model. (shudders & twitches)

I like the idea of the 770 (in purple or blue) too. Either way I'm happy to see some old models re-released again, I love my 550, even if they did cheap out on the electronics; switches.

LOL! A black RG770DX. That WOULD be easy to make! Almost like a Prestige version of the RG350MDX with the 770 route.

The second R in "RGR" means reverse head. The RG565 already has a reverse head!
