Score! NGD! RG770

Man I love living here in Japan, Ibanez paradise. Been here a good few years now and picked up a load of interesting domestic models from used goods stores. Snapped up a 1990 RG770fm today. A good few dings on the body and really faded cosmo hardware but awesomeness nonetheless. Neck and frets are in great shape. Wizard neck with binding and sharkteeth, F2/C2/F2 Dimarzios, Original Edge and a really sweet red and yellow flame maple burst top. Looks and sounds awesome, just need to give this baby a proper setup. Paid 23,000 yen ($300 bucks/200 pounds). Hell yeah!

I got my first RG-550 DY when I was stationed at Misawa in the early 90s at a pawn shop right outside the main gate for $200.00

Hey guys. I teach English in public schools, but I'm a designer by trade. Hope to set up my own business in the next couple of years and settle down here.

Re: Score! NGD! RG770

What a fabulous find Jack!!! I agree that cherry bursts aren't usually very nice........

BUT DAMN IS IT NICE ON YOUR GUITAR!!!!!

I think I have an extra F4 pup lying around here if you want to have an original for the neck position.

Oh the F4! That's kind of like a PAF pro with more bass right? Cool. Actually weirdly, since it's better known as a bridge pup, the F2 sounds really great in the neck. Dark, round, smooth lead tones. Seems to have been stock in the neck in most of Japan's domestic 1991 RG770s. Will probably keep it where it is, but cheers for the heads up on the F4!

The F2 in the bridge sounds really similar to a V2 after I changed its stock alnico magnet to a ceramic (rg550 bridge). It's decent but might look for something different, perhaps darker, and with more ooomph. A super 3 or something. Overall really liking the guitar and will crank my amp a bit tomorrow afternoon to give it a more thorough workout.
