RG SIngle Humbucker guitar

Hello! I'm new to Ibanez guitars and am interested in a single pickup RG guitar. I like a guitar with a humbucker pickup in the bridge position.

Did Ibanez ever make an RG series guitar that had just a single humbucker at the bridge? Kinda like the Charvel that Gary Moore played in the 80's?

Check out:

Thanks!

The older rgs (pre 87) had some cool models like that.

Yes! What is the model name?

Did it come in any other colors? I'm not a fan of black.

Thanks!

Re: RG SIngle Humbucker guitar

Thanks ! was just looking through the 1985/6/7 catalogs and found it. Per the catalog it was made in Cherry Ice, Black, and Pearl Red.

They also show an Alan Hollsworth AH10 single pickup model in Burgendy, Forest Green, Black, and White.

Don't forget the usa custom series. A lot of these guitars came with a bridge humbucker only.

Another RG410 owner here. Yeah, black sucks but it's a cool guitar, especially the neck. The stock pups in these are hot ceramic things; not bad but not my 'go to' - PAF Pro works nicely.


Though it's not specified in the catalogue, they also came in white and magenta burst like RGTFanatic's, and some had black hardware.

Re: RG SIngle Humbucker guitar

Kinda wish it was reverse slanted, so top strings have a pinch more warmth but whatever.

Fwiw, I've got a trem spaced pu in mine, which still lines up better when slanted compared to a normal spaced one, particularly on the E strings.
