RV470 (and GAS)
This has been a bad day for GAS. Every morning I get up at 4:00 to play for a few hours before work. Then I fire up the computer to see what's new here in the forum, in the auctions, and so on. So first I bumped across an RT650 in blue gravure. There were a lot of nice things said in an old post about those guitars. I pondered it awhile, then went for it. Okay, that was number one.
Then I happened across something I'd been looking for for awhile. In 1993 only, Ibanez made the RV470. It was pretty unique for the Radius series in that it had the AANJ, a Viper neck, an alder body, HSH pickups, a clear pickguard, and a vintage tremelo. Barely a Radius when you add all that up. It's similar to the R442 (bought one of those recently from Scott74 and like it a lot) that also had a vintage trem and an alder body, but the rest of it is different.
So I went for it. Two guitars in one morning = Very bad GAS. Too much coffee. No college for the kids. Walk to work. Top Ramen for lunch. Have to unravel speaker wire to string these things up... Something has to go, but not sure what yet (neither of the 2 new ones though).
Anyway, thought I'd share,
