RGR465m-limited edition?

The 2010 Ibanez rgr465m is a so called "limited edition" but does anyone know just how limited it is? It's a pretty cool guitar, I got one and will change the tremolo to an edge pro. Don't like the edge III at all. This is my budget "rg565" while I'm waiting for the real deal to come up.

Re: RGR465m-limited edition?

not really. I do know it was only made for a year. Sorry if it doesnt help.
The shop i bought my guitar from from had one in red, but i went for an RG370DXZ cause of the bridge. no shop in this part of the world(india) can do that kind of modification. Plus, the edge pro probably costs more than the guitar itself here, what with our corrupt import tax guys!!!

I don't know about numbers, but I've read it was a UK-only run.

i highly doubt it, because I saw it in the shop at MUMBAI, in India. The guy gets his guitars directly from ibanez. It was actually an international run.
Either way, its a great guitar , minus the bridge.

Yes that is correct. For what I know it was at least sold in Europe, Australia, Canada, Asia, China and India to. Would be fun to know how many numbers Ibanez made. Got a feeling it was not that "limited".

I can't wait to get the edge pro mounted on my rgr465. I can post pics when its done if you want.

Wow! I completely forgot and Edge Pro would drop right in that bad boy. An RGR465 with an Edge Pro?!? Yes please!

Re: RGR465m-limited edition?

I have a Soda Blue and it is pretty great. Just got it this past summer. I saw a few posts here trashing it because it was made in indonesia. It has a Dimarzio D Activator and an Air Norton and it rocks. I have an '89 RG560 and I usually pickup the 465. I haven't even done a proper setup on it yet... They both feel nice.

Only problem now, I really want to get a 565 to got with it.

Why is the RGR465 so hatted?

I think the RGR465 gets a fair bit of stick simply because it's not Made in Japan and doesn't ahve an original Edge, like the RG565 it's based on.

The fact it's 85% of the way there is lost on the fact that it's 15% not there...

I didn't think I was going to like either because it wasn't mij too.
I was thinking it was going to feel cheap. I've seen so many customs on this site, shouldn't be too much trouble swaping out the trem...

Ibanez need to came back with the RG565 and the 540Pi/ii...
My problem right now, It seems like I want the guitar that are as rare as (no offense to anyyone) pope sh!t...;-)

Re: RGR465m-limited edition?

i agree with jono. But to be fair, they really shouldnt have put the edge 3 on it. they couldve put an edge pro, or something.
