It's a Gibraltar II. Found this in the 1993 catalog.

I've only seen the Gibraltar that they use on their current fixed bridge RGs. I didn't know there was a Gibraltar II that preceded it.



Or maybe this one is called Gibraltar Standard?

How is the Gibraltar II? Does it play like a TOM?

There's also a Gibraltar III that's found on the SZ models. Both of them play like TOM, but the GII has the stop tail while the GIII is for string-thru bodies.

Apparently there is also a Gibraltar Plus bridge:



Doesn't look like it has individually height adjustable saddles, though. Looks like you can only raise each side (like on the original Edge).

Funny part is that they all have different spacing between posts, if I recall correctly.

exactly the reason why i have been pulling away from ibanez in the past few years. too much variation and inconsistency. innovation is a great thing, but i can't invest in something that i can't be confident in. ibanez hardware is becoming more and more propriertary and it's too difficult to secure parts for guitars that were only made for one or two years that are too unique for their own good. that's why i only buy 2002 and older ibanez's with locking trems.
