What kind of Roadstar 2 is this?

HI there I'am from switzerland so I'm sorry for my bad english.
I'm here because i tryed to identifi mi Ibanez Roadstar 2. But in the german forums was noone who coulden't help me.

The serial Number is: F703134 made in Japan.

On the tremolo is "Licensed under Floyd Rose Patents".
The pick ups are "low Impedance".

On the backside of the guitare, is a litte box with e batterie inside.

Re: What kind of Roadstar 2 is this?

This is a weird one. It's a 1987 model, but which model number, I have no idea. It looks like an RG440DW, only yours looks like it has active pickups! Unless that's an in-built wireless system or something.

What does the headstock look like? Is it the new/current shape or the older type?

EDIT: I just saw the other thread and Nuno said the same thing.

Re: What kind of Roadstar 2 is this?

yep, let's put it here too for all to see:

seems like a '87 Roadstar RG440 in DW finish (Deep Wine)
here below in different versions (toothed horns, headstock, pickguard, slanted single-coils, p-ups covers)



(next time just post a full frontal pic, no need for 3 pics of the battery box to ID a guitar )

Those look really nice. I like the old-school headstock version of it the best.

probably the 440DW with an aftermarket pickguard and active pups. The battery cavity does look very professionally done. The pickguard looks like a single-ply or black/black/black one.

Well, it may be original. Seems there are others with an 87 serial with blade headstocks.
