Question What model is my RG?

Hi,

I'm really struggeling to find out what model RG i have. I bought the guitar in a guitarshop a long time ago and they're closed now and i can't find out my model number. The serial number on the back of the neck is: F99 34809. This means it's made in 1999, yes? I've looked in the US-99 catalog and didn't find the model.

Here are some pics (can't post links or imgs so had to modify link):


Neck: h-ttp://heim.ifi.uio.no/simesae/pics/156.JPG
Picks: h-ttp://heim.ifi.uio.no/simesae/pics/157.JPG
Body: h-ttp://heim.ifi.uio.no/simesae/pics/159.JPG
Picks: h-ttp://heim.ifi.uio.no/simesae/pics/161.JPG


I would really appreciate any help!

Can't help with the ID, but here's your pictures for ease of viewing:

Also, I found a thread on the Ibanez forums about what appears to be the same model and no one there had any good information either! Somewhat surprising.

My first thought was that it's a RG-520QS in brown. Obviously it's some variant because of the bridge. I'd suggest pulling the neck off and seeing what's stamped on the neck heel and neck pocket. That'll at least give you someplace to start.

I beleive it's an RG621. (or 521 I can never remember which) the direct mounted pickups suggest a 621, but the V series pickups suggest a 521.

These were marketed in Europe in the mid to late 90s and the model designation predates the use of the XX1 as a hardtail.

Hope this helps

furthermore i beleive they were mid-season addition and didn't feature in the EU catalogues either, they certainly weren't in the UK ones.

If someone has an issue of guitarist from around this time, they might see them advertised at a UK store called "Percy Prior's"

There was a stock model that came with a Wilkinson hardtail bridge? Wonder if it's the same as this one since I believe this is a 521.

Re: What model is my RG?

Hello again!

Thanks for the quick replys!

I dismantled the guitar now and you guys are right, this is a RG 521 QS.
Anyone got any idea of what I can get for this guitar?

And thanks again for helping me out
