Re: RG with solid flame maple body

That's a beauty!
Are you sure it's an 89?
I haven't seen any 80s RGs with the AANJ--only the Maxxas.

Re: RG with solid flame maple body

From Ishibashi U-box, right?
So you are the one score that beauty? congrats..!
I've been watching it closely since the day it's appeared on the U-box, but too bad just don't have enough bullet to pull the trigger.
I believe it''s some kind of spot production for some of their exclusive dealer in Japan.
Never seen one like this before.
J custom line has some models with solid flame maple body as well.

tell me how does it sound ?
I bet it's very bright sounding guitar.

Haha yeah I only noticed it yesterday and spent the day thinking about how to break it to my gf that I can't live without this guitar!! (now 10 strong)

When I first saw it I was reminded of Dan Spitz rhoads made of solid flame maple which are too cool! Yeah sure I'll let you know how it goes.

Re: RG with solid flame maple body

actually, I once had an late 80 ESP Mirage custom made from solid quilted maple 2 pieces, ebony board, maple neck.
that thing is so loud, I can tell by playing it unplugged.
but again... it's way too bright also.

Re: RG with solid flame maple body

Wow, that thing is seriously cool! Based on the F2 in the neck, it probably is an '89. An F4 would have been there on a '90 guitar. This would probably be one of the first AANJ's every produced. Congrats!

Re: RG with solid flame maple body

Basically looks like a hot rodded RG770. Looks like in Japan, the RG770 stayed with an F2 in the neck through '91.
