RG560

Hello. My first post here. I recently picked up a 1987 RG560 for $125, it seemed like a great deal. Need some parts and work but it's pretty cool even as is.

I'm enjoying the forum and learning all I can about these old Ibanez guitars so I can turn it into a really fun shredder.

Re: RG560

Thanks. It need some work. Tuners have two gears showing, function fine though. Trem bar missing, trem cavity and jack cavity covers on back missing. One of the studs for the bridge is broken.

Big thing is the neck. Need a serious fret dressing.

To be honest, I am debating if it's worth putting money into or not. I figure our local luthier can do much better than me, probably for under $200 to get it up and running like new.

Re: RG560

Thanks a lot, but it wasant me who bought rg560 (althought I wish I did ) its member name The Guildedage. From place where I'm MIJ Ibanez guitars are rare and expensive especiali rg550, 570 etc. Their price is about 400-500, and plus speare parts is impossible to find.

Re: RG560

The first Ibanez I ever touched (and Instantly fell in love) And ended up owning the very guitar for 5 yrs was a Red RG560 W/case.
Like a dumb ass I sold it for a Kramer..... I miss that Ibby....
