Re: RG2620 Inlay confusion.
The guitar is certainly playable. In fact I bet it sounds and plays very nicely. I took very good care of that guitar, in a year of owning it, it didn't as much as get a light bump against a wall/amp/desk/anything.
I'll summarize, because I already have another several page thread on another forum about the actual damage, and the shop is being good to me, I don't want it misconstrued that I'm dragging their name through the mud on every guitar related board on the net.
Brought guitar in shop in mint condition, strings removed, trem blocked, stock pickups removed, wiring mostly disconnected. With the guitar I brought in a set of SD Blackouts. Asked to have them installed, mentioned they would not fit due to pickup holes being too shallow. Routing was the answer (I've since heard a neck shim is a possibility, although it seems like it would have to be a hell of a shim). 3 weeks pass and several visits/phonecalls occur. I pick up the guitar, there is a mark from what appears to be a slip of the Dremel/router in the body in 2 locations, well through the paint into the wood. Wiring non functional upon testing.
Went back in today, was offered a new guitar and new Blackouts, and received many apologies. All of the new Ibanez's have horrible Edge Zero Trems, so tracked down the 2620 I had played, and that is coming in Friday for me. I have a S2170 they have loaned me, as I expressed some interest in that as a replacement, that interest is gone after playing it.
So yeah, the TL\DR is indeed, it is playable, in fact I'm certain it plays just like it did when I brought it in, and probably sounds a lot dirtier with Blackouts in it. I don't think anyone would accept woodworking damage to their mint guitar back from repair. I'm sure they will sell it and recoup some of the losses, someone who doesn't care too much about looks is going to get a very nice playing guitar.
