RG560 Custom ?

I found an interesting special guitar. Owner says that it's rare RG560 Custom 1990 and this guitar was made at Ibanez Factory.
Reverse head, shark inlays, nice body.
But I've never seen this guitar at catalogues. I can't find any information in WWW.

Does anybody know about this guitar?

Re: RG560 Custom ?

Your pics are not showing. GC had a batch of 560's made special for their stores only and your description sounds like that.

Re: RG560 Custom ?

What kind of pickup configuration does it have?

Sounds more like a 565 Proto.

Re: RG560 Custom ?

Does it look like this?



This is a 565 prototype from 1989. They only made them in Red and DY from what I learned, and it was only to test the market for the production 565 that came out first in early 91.

If you can get it, get it because they are pretty rare, not to mention awesome to play.

Sweet, I like the binding and the matching headstock. I'd grab it.

Re: RG560 Custom ?

I belive RG565 are H-S and RG560 are H-S-S. Nevertheless this doesn't qualify as a 560 since 560s were H-S-S, no binding anywhere and dots on the fretboard. The 760 had sharktooth fretboards, but no body binding and no reverse headstock.
Strange but very beautiful guitar. Nice find!

Re: RG560 Custom ?

Could be a Employee's guitar or a Japan only make..The only way to truly find out would be to check the neck pocket..either way, buy it ASAP.

Re: RG560 Custom ?

Weird, the pics didn't show up at all when I first read this thread. Now I see them and I am almost certain I have seen this guitar (or one very similar) somewhere else. Could have been the Ibanez forums? No idea what the model is.

Re: RG560 Custom ?

i believe it's japanese domestic model RG 560 for one of their local distributor there ( forgot what store's name).
I saw one exactly like this, only the finish is red, and it was listed as 'an store original model RG 560'.
If i'm not mistaken the store was 'ikebe'.
