Curious if I was scammed at ****

Just bought a guitar last night on Eba* Seller had a very high rating and a ton of sales with happy customers.

He was advertising the guitar as an Ibanez RG 220B. I just now noticed in the pictures listed on this page http://cgi.eba*com/ws/eba*ISAPI.dll?...m=180391550641 it appears to be the RG 220 neck but on an ESP body??

The only ESP I can find so far with 3 knobs and that look is the Kirk Hammett model. Does anybody know what ESP body this appears to be, and if it's worth the price I paid ($161.00)?

Any answers or input would be greatly appreciated. I have not received it yet and if this is a scam I'll just return it and file a not as advertised claim with Eb**/PayPal...

Thanks in advance

Re: Curious if I was scammed at ****

the body is worth a ton more than that, but if you want THAT model of Ibanez, then this isn't what you're looking for...

Thanks Do you know what body it is? The only ESP/LTD body in that shape with (3) knobs appears to be the Kirk Hammett model??

Honestly if it's worth the money and plays well I don't really care. I had an old 1987 RG560 and miss the shredder feel. Was just looking for a fairly cheap 2nd guitar.

Let me know if you can tell what body it is?
Thanks again.

Re: Curious if I was scammed at ****

it's kinda hard to tell, the hardware is darker like the KH-602 but that's a neck-thru, so i'm not sure. it doesn't look lighter like on the 202 so the matches come up with the Kh-2 (holy dam* expensive). however, the bridge pickup is from a 202 and the neck pickup is a jackson cvr2...
i noticed that the strap holders are clearly from the 202 (as they are much rounder and aren't triangular at all like the other KH models are)
what i would say is, if it plays well and you like it, then you got a hel* of a deal...
oh, and i'm a 560 man too, i have a '92 in grape ice (it's pink/purplish but you gotta love it )

Thanks. I'm thinking I'll take it to my local guitar center and see if they can tell what the body is. Maybe I got lucky??

If you don't like it I can take it if you want


Seriously though, when it comes to Ibanez its the neck that is most important in the first place, and for under 200 bucks you can't be incredibly picky.
