Sometimes, I just need a little help :-)

Hi folks,

itīs me, again, with a "please identify this guitar" question.

Itīs a Ibanez RG-Series - Made in Japan - Serial Nr. F9735462

So it should be made in June 1997 if I remember the system right - but I still donīt know the model.

So here are the pictures







By the way, the former owner (mis)used it quite a lot - I am not sure if I should go the whole 9 yards and repair it - but anyway, as always I am grateful for all your input and knowledge.

Cheers, Engin

Though it has resoncast body, it sounds wayyyy better than any Indonesian made RG 3XX, 4XX, etc with claimed as 'basswood'.
I had indo's RG370 DX equipped with dimarzio humbuckers.. , the dimarzios are not helping much for this guitar, the tone still somewhat... no impact and lack of sustain.

I also once had RGR480 with resoncast, and RG 250 MIJ with resoncast too, as I can remember, these resoncast guitars still way better than MII basswood guitars.
