So I finally bought a 'new' Ibanez....

After two sexy years with my (then) brand new PGM301, I felt it time to get her a friend.

Some of you may know I have been looking ever several new guitars but what I really wanted was a 1982 Ibanez Rocket Roll II / RR400 - exactly the same as paul gilberts one with the set neck, binding, flame top and gold hardware :OD

I bought it from a private collector in europe, and it is in a flawless condition. The only ones ive seen of this exact model over the past year have been pretty rough so to find one that appears to be flawless is IMHO a fantastic find.

The only bummer is that is wasnt cheap - but worth it im sure.

I will post some photos for you guys as soon as it arrives next week. Does anyone know what gauge strings it uses?

thanks!

Cant wait to see it. I think the pre 87 Ibbys are great even though the RG's get all the attention. I have been looking at mid 80's myself. Please tell us how it plays when you post pics. Strings are probably 9's.

Sure thing, I will post A.S.A.P. When you says 9's, what is the bottom string likely to be, 42's like on my PGM or heavier?
