Nice guitar!

These days Bigfoot Guitars (Germany, but they deliver worldwide) offers some nice USA customs (even a American Master).

Trying to find neck dimensions for my 1990 Ibanez USA Custom “Streetwise” with hot EMG H/S pickups and where I can find a replacement neck. On the body where the neck goes it has “H&S 5601 and also looks like in red HS 627U”
The original neck was broken accidentally 15 yrs ago and not realizing that the serial # was on the neck so I did not save the neck. And if I wrote down the numbers on there I’m not sure where that info is now 😞 It might be too expensive to try and replace the neck but it was one of my favorite guitars to play

Re: USA Custom Master Thread

I do own one with one of the rare QM-Made in USA - necks, which are known from the UCEW 2. I never saw a cheap offer for a AR. Some years ago it was possible to buy a cheap Necro but even the prices of this often sold graphic raised in the last years.

Re: USA Custom Master Thread

Hey guys, could anyone shed some light on this one?

Seems like it is genuine (except the pickups, of course), but has no paintjob?

Re: USA Custom Master Thread

My guess is it's either a one-off for an endorse, or someone swapped the neck to a usa custom neck. My understanding is that all the production 1989 usa custom guitars had graphics. Speculation of course...

Re: USA Custom Master Thread

May be the neck is legit, looks legit at least
But the body is weird, the lower horn is too thin (aftermarket body ? modified body ?)

Re: USA Custom Master Thread

Thank you for the resposnes; as far as I can see, the body contours seem ok (maybe the lighting put you off), even the volume knob is in the period correct position. I'm thinking it was either ordered as such, without the graphic, or someone paired the usa custom neck with the period correct RG 570 body. Considering the country I live in, both seem improbable enough, though...
