Rg517

Hello,
Anybody know where I can a blue RG517 body? I've been watching E-bay for about four months for one, and haven't found one. Any Help, or anybody with one they're willing sell? It must be the sparkly blue.

nobody ever replies to my threads. I feel so unpopular.

Or, just maybe, no one knows where to get one!

Pretty rare item you are after. Custom made is probably your best bet.

Yeah, you're right. I just thought maybe I was doing something wrong, and my posts weren't showing up.

Yeah, I a whole guitar, it's $300 right now. Is that a good deal? The RG 517 is the same as the RG 570 except the paint jobs right?

Thanks man, I really appreciate it. I just bought another off **** though! It's the same thing, but with stock pickups and with a case! I paid $410. I'm looking forward to this guitar. Anybody know anything about them, or have or have played one? I can't wait to get it.

Re: Rg517

They are pretty nice, solid guitars. Basically the same as a RG570. I've gone thru a couple and they play nice, I'm just not fond of the RG with no pickguard look, but the 517 sparkles are kind of cool, so I keep coming back to them.

Re: Rg517

Yeah, I got one but I painted it up in an EVH stripe finish because I didn't care much for the sparkly finish. Because it was going to be a project, I came across the RG517 before I did a RG570.

A lot of people say that they are basically a RG570. Well, the body and the neck are stamped RG517 and I've never seen a RG570 (and believe me, I've seen a few) with such a dark, tight grained fretboard. It's closer in appearance to ebony than it is to rosewood.

It's over in the top LH corner.

Nice Ibanez EVH ... just needs some "5150" space tape to finish it off
