scored an ibanez rg 770

Well i am super excited. I scored an rg 770 in beautiful laser blue yesterday. I had to clean it up and do a full setup on it but man it plays awesome.

I pulled the neck off the body and it had 770 stamped on the body but on the back of the neck it had WALRJ - T24 stamped on it. I don't remember ever seeing anything like that on the rg 570 i had or the usrg30 that i had. the neck plate didnt have a number stamped on it either.

it was built in 1990 by the serial on the neck.

either way. thought i would share. Pics to come .

Nice score. I had a 760 just like that back in the '90s. F2 pickup should be in the bridge with F4 in the neck. Neck plate is correct as unnumbered and the neck stamp is also correct.

cool good to know. yeah i noticed the f2 was missing and the f4 in the neck instead of the bridge. the bridge is a dimarzio evolution. the f4 needs rewiring it sounds weak.

either way the evo was a bonus when i bought it.

Re: scored an ibanez rg 770

Awesome J!!! That's the exact same as the 770 I had as my first real Ibby. My girlfriend bought it new in '90 for me. After loosing it (stolen) I couldn't afford another for a VERY long time. I think that's why I'm so crazy about buying 7xx's so much now............

Re: scored an ibanez rg 770

i really love it but i am gassing for a new amp hardcore. I might sell or trade it to try and get a mesa or something similar.

Unfortunately, 7xx's aren't selling for very much currently. certainly not enough to score a mesa. I'd sit on it for a while til the used market prices for these goes back up.

oh i know that they aren't selling for as much as they have in the past. I am also looking at selling my current amp (a mesa dc-2 studio) and a hand gun to fund a mesa of some kind. I had an oppertunity to sit down and play a mark 5 1x12 combo and it was amazing. I really miss my mark 3 but can't afford the 5 so it looks like either a used mark 4, or a stiletto of some kind unless something else pops up.

Re: scored an ibanez rg 770

Freaking SWEET! I wanted this EXACT guitar when I was ~13 the FIRST TIME I saw the video for Jane's Addiction's stop. I saved my paper route money and was able to get an RG. Hahaha.

You ever wanna sell this... you let ME know.
