RG with reversed headstock?

Did Ibanez ever make any standard RG guitars with reverse headstock, except for the signature series (e.g. Paul Gilbert)?

Not sre if they're actually standard, but the USA Custom series had the choice of reverse headstocks. Besides that, I'm not so sure.

Re: RG with reversed headstock?

Just go ibanezregister.com and look RG models with the brand RGR (extra R=reversed headstock) and then there's the PGM .

My friend has a RG560 with a reversed headstock

Thanks for all the answers guys!! I'm offered a RG470 dirt cheap but I really would want a reversed headstock so I just wanted to know if it's possible to find one at *bay or something like that.

Re: RG with reversed headstock?

Make sure your 470 is not the one with the Lo-TRSII.
