I'm not concerned with the description of the auction saying it's two-tone. I think that was a mistake on the sellers part. To me it looks like Jewel Blue??
The first thing that stood out when i first saw this pic, was definitely the chrome tremolo. It looks out of place with the black tremolo bar and black pups.
It's possible this was a foreign market guitar. By that, I mean, it's still ibanez made in the fujigen factory, but maybe it was only released in Germany or England or something like that. that's why the Ibanez website asks which country you're from. Japan always has different finishes and sizes to suit their tastes and physiques.
You are referring to the chrome tremolo, which could have been released elsewhere, right?
The original seller assured the buyer that it has RG570 on the rear of the headstock, which we have already established hasn't happened, so that seems like another mistake by the seller. I don't mind if it's a 550 neck, but are there any possibilities of it being a lower end model neck??
BTW, i do agree it's a good looking case.
Ki swordsman, patience is not one of my strong points.
