Re: Tell me more about this RG1

Is this your guitar? Did you modify it and fit what looks to be a Lace Sensor pickup?

Re: Tell me more about this RG1

Nope it's not mine. Someone is selling it and I'm kinda interested but I don't know what specs the RG1 has.

Anyone care to share info on the RG1?

By modify, do you mean to say that the RG1 originally is only a double humbucker guitar?

I think they just swapped the middle pickup for a Lace Sensor which, in my opinion, isn't a half bad idea. I would buy it if I had the money.

Re: Tell me more about this RG1

Does no one know the specs of the RG1 I posted???

I would like to know the basics like body wood, fret board wood, pickups and also what year it was made.

IIRC, it is mahogany back with maple top and maple neck with ebony fingerboard.

Re: Tell me more about this RG1

I couldn't find it on Ibanez Register. Maybe you should try asking Rich of IbanezRules. He would probably know the full spec.
There is a picture in his gallery page of an RG that looks much like yours but it has no middle pickup. That one is called RG PR1. Has the same prestige logo on the headstock like yours.

Re: Tell me more about this RG1

If it is a modded RG PR1 and not somethinng else, here are the specs

My guess is that the pickups are a Dimarzio ToneZone and AirNorton.

Re: Tell me more about this RG1

The pictures look like the ones I posted so it seems that the owner routed out the body for a single coil middle pup.

Well, too bad. It's a nice guitar but I would rather he kept it stock

Re: Tell me more about this RG1

If the routing is nicely done and the price is right, get it! Seems like there were only 12 of these made.
