I have one exactly the same. Itīs an USRG30TP model. If you are thinking to bid on that one you must do it. Excellent guitar all the way around. Only made in 1994 and 1995 then discontinued. Were made at the PBC (Bunker guitars) custom headquarters in USA. His owner in that moment Dave Bunker introduce the "free tension" neck system and were also built by his mate on the bussiness Jim Donahue.
Differences with models were basically that 10 model has the head in black finish and AA top and floyd, 20 has head matching headstock but fixed bridge and 30 has AAA top, matching headstock and floyd.
At the moment one of my best sound Ibanez, lot of sustain and strong character.
- Really high quality craftmanship and woods.
- Amazing clean tones. First position if you donīt open the tone knob is like an acoustic guitar. AmazingĄĄĄ
- Also have a strong character when using distortion. No plastic sounds as late top end Ibanez guitars.
- Nothing bad on the guitar except they donīt build it again... hahaha...
The neck it may seems to you soem strange for the radius the first times... but is a fast one, straight as an arrow but with a more open C form that made it strange at the first touches.
You can not be wrong with this guitar in my opinion, and guitar looks in good condition for its age. Itīs a 95 model made in December, the number item 71. It was said that only around 100 units were made of this USRG30TP. Probably any other bro here could confirm this better but you know how odd are the Ibanez guys with production numbers in certain models. Anyway if itīs a 1995 model made in December.. must be one of the late ones produced so for a 71 unit is not too far thinking on a 100 units.
Here are some pics of mine. I confirmed with Mr. Dave Bunker Itīs a custom order for some endorsee player of the period. Itīs number #13 and donīt have the standard sticker on back of head for serial itīs engraved.
Hope all helps a little and remember that is only my two cents.
