I'm a fan of Ibanez guitars and I do know a fair share about them. I've recently bought this Prestige from someone. basically, we've concluded that its an RG1308 (J Custom) model. however, it has a prestige label instead of the J Custom label.
another thing to note is that the body paint finish is different from those pictures that I've seen online. mine is a darker shade while the J Custom seems almost glowing.
check out the pictures here.
the specs of the 2 guitars are the same though. dimarzio pickups and all. however, I'm certain that this is not a RG1308. the RG1308 has the J Custom logo at the headstock. mine has the prestige label.
this is a picture of a RG2550ex body taken from ****.
here is a picture of my prestige body
the back of the neck
behind the headstock
what I can conclude is:
- the body matches the neck
what I can assume is:
- this is a J custom but released as a regular prestige model back in 1997.
- the neck should be similar to a J Custom as it has those black numbers there ( my previous J Custom had those )
is the model for this guitar RGC308 (since the RG2550ex has the model number written in the neck pocket) ? if so, what does RGC stand for? how come I cant find any information on google or other search engines? I would appreciate some help guys. thanks!
