USA Custom 1220QM-TO update

For those who remember, I sent pictures to Ibanez's instrument identification service to see what exactly my USA Custom really is. Get this, I finally got a reply from them today and they advised that they are unable to identify my model number because they are unable to match any USA Custom production runs with the features that my USA Custom has.

I guess the 1220QM-TO will have to do for this phantom model. ;-)

Is that a flat top or is there an arm contour?

I think they forget that half the guys that have worked at HUSA over the years have built a guitar from parts or scratch

I'd figure that for an employee guitar.

Possibly, but I believe there is more than one of these floating around.

bduersch appearantly had one of these at some point. I bought this one from the original owner who bought it in '91 from Great Great House of Guitars (SN# F150085).

HOG was know for taking anything the rep wanted to dump on them so they definately got some strange stuff along the way.

The one Brent had was the one he bought from me. I'd posted pics in the previous thread.

Those guitars were a special run made for Guitar Center stores. The one I had came with the original GC receipt and everything (which is where the RG1220QM-TO came from). Not sure if that paperwork was in the case when Brent got it or not. Not sure how the original owner would have bought it brand new from House of Guitars in '91 since they weren't actually made for Guitar Center until the mid-90's but...maybe there's a time warp somewhere on the East coast?

PS. The serial number isn't necessarily relevant. Who knows HOW many spare UCEW and UCG necks were laying around. The neck may have been from '91 but the guitar probably isn't.

Edit: Oh yeah...and the other reasons that it's not a '91 (as well as every other detail on this guitar) have ALL been discussed already:

I know... I am not trying to rehash an old discussion. ;-) I just wanted to post the outcome of my efforts with Ibanez and express my surprize that they don't know what it is.
