Saw a USA custom at my guitar center today

There is im guessing a 90 Leopard USA custom at my local Monroeville Pa Guitar Center. Serial was on the back of the headstock started with F then was 0. Leopard Print all over the body. Origanl Edge trem. I think it was 2 single coils and a humbucker, they had no writing on them like IBZ or V1 or anything. Pretty sure the price was $1299. It had an origanl 1 piece neck and the neck plate had the ibanez logo and room for the serial on it but none in it.

Just a heads up if anyone wants to contact them.

Re: Saw a USA custom at my guitar center today

I took this info off of there website.

384 Mall Blvd.
Monroeville, Pennsylvania 15146

Phone: 412-372-8800
Fax: 412-372-8850

There is usually an email you can find somewhere on the page AKA used gear listings, but for some reason none of the used gear for that store show's up on the site. It did acouple days ago though. IDK give them a call or email customer service on the main page and ask them for this stores email.

Re: Saw a USA custom at my guitar center today

thank you dude. drop them a message.. hopefully there is an answer shortly.

I'm collecting this kind of USA custom, right now i own : USA Custom Golden Feline and Tiger/ Bengal.
According to my knowledge, there are 4 kind of 'cat' series in USA custom, :
TIGER/ bengal
Golden Feline
Jungle cat
Leopard

so, it's my obligation to seek the other two.

Re: Saw a USA custom at my guitar center today

Went out there again today to pick up a new amp and checked it out again.

It HAS the sharkfins, I believe they were reversed too. They also had another one that I missed last time. Its a Reptile finish. It must be newer cause the headstock logo is the newer style. It also has rosewood with sharkfins and both are $1299.

Well, if you needed money right away, they're good for that. None of the store credit sh!t. They cut the check to you right there...

Otherwise I absolutely agree.
