What have I just purchased?
I just bought an RG second hand. I know its Serial number is F0233***, which means its either a 1990 or a 2002...I think.
The neck says made in japan, has no volute on it. The guitar has V7 and V8 HH pickups, and the tremolo is an original edge (Took it out of the guitar while I'm setting it up, it has EDGE on the tremolo block)
The neck has one skunk stripe ending before the headstock, AANJ, Fender style knobs on the volume and tone controls (1 volume one tone, 3 way blade switch), black pickguard, side mounted body jack.
The logo just says Ibanez RG series.
The guitar has a few dings in it, but considering it has an original edge and possibly a Wizard I, I'm totally ok with that, even if I were to part it out. (THe original owner must have had it for years and never used the trem, since it didn't have a trem bar with it, and there was a repair docket in the case from a place he'd taken it to have the strings changed.)
But i'm not sure what model it is...anyone who can help? It's finished in Silver, if that helps.
