I must say I've always been a sucker for strange unique Ibanez guitars. The Maxxas, the RG 3070, USA Customs, JS
This guitar just looks and smells USA Custom. But strange pups, and Wilkinson mod. threw me off. Description says that with flip of switch you can lock the trem??? Interesting!!
It does say USA Custom on headstock, but I wasn't aware they came like that. This link shows it does.
Serial nummer says starting with F (reads Japan)???
Flame maple on front of body is also not uniform. Almost like fineer that has been sanded down.
what's really confusing me is that the maple veneer/top goes all the way to the back of the bridge. So, if the body did indeed have an edge or a lopro, then someone put a new top on the guitar. Otherwise there should be some evidence of an edge route behind the wilkinsons, but there isn't.
That's strange to me too. If it had Edge or Lo Pro Edge.....the cavity would have gone beyond the Wilkinson trem. If they re-topped guitar......why not cover part infront of trem also.
Did notice the additional hole at the neck bolts.
Guitar is currently offered for sale for 750 Euros. But for that kinda money you pick up an "original" USA Custom.
