I thought the 560 always had a non-matching headstock. I thought to get a matching headstock you had to get a 570 (I'm speaking late 80's here). Which added a matching headstock and a humbucker at the neck. I've never played on an edge pro.
I'm pretty sure 560's came with matching headstocks in 1990/91/92.

I believe sssteve72 was referring to the late '80s models. Yes, they did come with non matching headstocks.

Re: time for the RG560 reissue!!

I didn't know it had matching headstock in the 90's.

Honestly I find it hard to know about the headstock on the 560 based solely on Ibanez catalog website of old catalogs. I don't even see a catalog there from 1989. I see people offering 1987 RG560's but according to wiki they were introduced in 1988 and I don't see the RG560 listed in the 87 catalog. Of course I don't see Carotene Orange listed in the Catalog either but obviously they exist. I suppose there could be prototypes floating around with matching headstocks from the 80's also.

My bro's '88 has a non matching headstock. That's first person testimony. Not a catalog website. Whether or not Ibanez introduced matching heads in the '90s, that's for someone else to verify.

It's not on the Ibanez site, but leave it to Rich to keep us covered:

I'd love to see PN reissued! Or better yet, I'd love to see it on a new production model like what they did with "DY", only with the correct paint job. haha!
The RG570PN was my very first Ibanez. It my youth I was a bit of a dumbass and sanded the finish off. It's a grape purple with candy apple over top, I think. Probably too expensive of a finish to reissue or use again.... unfortunately.

The PN had a red base coat with a blue metallic pearl on top of it.

If you do that, it will vanish from existence, be careful. Next, you'll be sharing videos of flying saucers.

560 NGD for me, got my CO fix finally. Once I clean it up and get a good restring I'll be able to fully enjoy it. Thing is almost mint, no dings or paint chips. Needless to say, very happy~

Congrats. There's a very nice looking CO on eBay right now. Item 270801052672

Looks to only have one small ding on the back.
