Yet another RG identification (UK) - please

Hi folks,

I am looking to buy a spare RG guitar to compliment the 3120, and have come across this little spangley number. However the chap selling does not know the model so I asked him to detail it over the phone (as follows):
Serial no f0033342
Bridge lo.trs
24 fret

By this description I assumed it was 400 series from 2000, based on trem, but he has since sent photos and this now has me completely baffled.

As you can tell I am complete novice about Ibanez, so have used the US catalogues on ibanezrules to try to help me.

It is the pickups that are confusing me. Looking at the catalogues, I was expecting at best V series which have the names stamped all over them, or at worst the more basic pickups.

However the ones in the images sent to me bare no resemblence upon the catalogue low end models as these appear to always have the rectangle surround.

Hope someone can enlighten me soon

Does it have the block style neck joint or AANJ? If it has the AANJ then it should be a 2000 model. If not then it's a 1990 model. Since it hast the Lo TRS on there I'm guessing it is a RG4XX (just a guess) but if you want to be absolutely sure just pop the neck off and it should be stamped in the neck pocket! That pickguard doesn't look original either

That my friend is indeed a 400 series Ibanez.
It is an Ibanez RG450LTD MG (Magenta Crush). The pickguard is completely original, and the pickups look original too.

If you go to that link you will see another one of them. I have seen a few of them actually. MachineHead sold one last year some time for 250.

If you have a look around on Ibanez Register you will see more pics etc.
Hope that was of help!

What a wonderful place this is!

Many thanks for the information. At least now I realise its not for me, mainly due to the pickups being the 'entry level' stuff.

I will just keep looking for the right deal
