I forgot about that.....thanks bro!! Unfortunately you cant see the back in the video.

@Metalhead.....I think he was referring to the '88-'90's. The all had the square "cutaway" heels.

The middle pickup has been taken out and the cavity filled before it was custom painted.

Re: What USA Custom is this?

The neck is identical to the one on my '90 USA (reverse head, sharkies). The graphic does look like it comes from their album art.

Might just be an RG760 that he had custom painted. Somebody on here who is into the USA Customs might be able to tell you. I've never seen one like that.

What USA Custom is this?

After years of watching this video I realized one of their guitarist is using an Ibanez USA Custom. Unfortunately I can't really tell which one graphic it is, hopefully someone here knows :P

The band is Vicious Rumors, Post Vinnie Moore.

Excellent riffage and I think at 2:35 he is briefly using a 570 in Five Alarm.. Anyway check it!!
