Re: What guitar is this?

Re: What guitar is this?

Pickups are IBZ V7 (neck), S1 (single coil), and V8 (bridge).

It's hard to price this guitar up. It's rare, so I'd say yes, it's gotta be worth 600 buckaroos, but I live in a country where guitars cost crazy money. USA people might have different opinions.

Re: What guitar is this?

If you just want to play it then its probably a bit much to pay sinc eyou can get a regular 570 that plays the same for half that.

Re: What guitar is this?

Hello, sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I am considering this guitar again, if only for one specific reason: apparently the bridge is a Lo-Pro Edge. Is this correct?

Re: What guitar is this?

If it is a '95 made in Japan RG, $600 sounds reasonable to me. I think guitars built at this time are a little better quality as far as fit/finish and hardware. I would guess a gold lo-pro would be worth around $300 by itself. I'd run the serial # through the a dater info website and you can find out where and when it was built.

No reason for all that trouble. F = Fujigen factory in Japan, 5 = 1995. The rest is strictly a sequential number that is utterly meaningless as far as determining what the guitar is.
