Does anybody here happen to own a RGT42DXFMTLF? Because I can't seem to be able to find a good solid CLEAR picture of what the guitar is supposed to look like. On the Ibanez site, the finish looks blue, as it does here too:


but I've found the guitar on an unmentionable auction site, and other sites/reviews that say its.....DARK PURPLE?!

If anybody owns one, and could take a good clear picture with some good lighting, that would be greatly appreciated. Or if anybody saw it in a shop, please let me know which color it looked like.

TL = transparent lavender, so yeah it will look kind of purple.

i've seen a couple at a shop. it looks close to what is on the ibanez site, but maybe a little bit lighter. looked really nice

I bought one in January
it's purple..
sold it in june
beware, mat finish sucks gets all glossy and polished in spots from arm wear.
in less than a week mine looked like a greasy mess, and the finish isn't very hard either I bumped mine against a chair and a huge chunk fell off.
the finish on the neck also sucked. hard to move around without getting caught up on the painted neck, I also hated the Trem but maybe that's just me. build quality was ok, but I sold mine for half of what I paid and bought a late 80's RG550. 10x the guitar in quality and playability. man they just don't make em like they used to
