What model from serial?

Hi Guise

I'm looking at an Ibanez with the serial number "F9944853" and here is a pic of it :





Thanks

edit : Hmm, the seller "rickardocool" seems to never have sold any other instruments, just small cheap stuff. It might just be me, but the missing inlay on the first fret, and the red headstock and purpleish body seems off a little. Not to mention there's not picture of the headstock.

There never was an inlay at the first fret on most guitars. However, the locking nut bolts and pads are missing, and you will have to get some new ones. Also, it is strung up for left-hand players but with right hand intonation. What the hell? :P

I gave it a miss, I couldn't determine the model in time. Is there any way you can check a model from it's appearance and serial number?

Thanks

+1

Except the Les Paul Customs and RGs with sharktooth/ghost sharktooth inlays.

EDIT: This is what I can tell you from the serial number. The guitar was apparently built at the Fugi-gen Plant in Japan in 1999. Its production number is 44853.
So I recommend looking at Ibanez catalogues from 1999 and seeing if you can find it.

Hope that helps.

At first sight, it would pass as an '89 RG but RG's from that era do not have the "RG series" on the headstock which leads me to believe as well that this could be from 1999
Although I think it's a modded 570 in Purple Neon.. but that color was only offered during the late 80 - early 90s...

For me it's an RG450 or RG505.
