time for the RG560 reissue!!
Ok..I've been a fan of these guitars since my first Ibanez in 1988. A used 1987 RG560...and I still have it..why? It's simply the best damn guitar I've owned or played..since 1999, I've acquired two more 560's, a 550, and a 570...Nowdays they are getting very hard to find in thier original state, and when you do, they list them for more than they listed back when they were new. Of course I'm willing to pay the current going price of one that is new...I would suspect around 900$...Also, I've noticed the new Paul Gilbert 301 that has just come out..which is basically an RG560..just a hardtail...These guitars obviously weren't very popular sellers, since they were discontinued in 1993. But I think the market is ready for them. People are asking for them more, they are snatching up and selling at steeper prices than I've ever seen(when you can find them)...This is one overlooked gem in the 500 series.
Hope someone reads this that could make this become a reality...Thank you.
