I also dislike that the "Ibanez" is mirrored.

I think another reason I kind of dislike the AANJ RG's is that they say "RG Series" on the headstock. That really bothers me for some reason. I feel like there should only be writing there if the guitar is a special model.
I can get on board with that. Especially about the logo's.

I don't think I've ever seen a thread about people's logo preference (RGseries vs. old style) it would be an interesting (and probably heated) thread.

I'm with you man........The AANJ is perfectly good and for some people the "perfect" joint.

But I'll take the feel and sound of an old square heel EVERY day!!!!!! I have 5 of them now, and still working on more.

Re: RG500 and RG700 collection?

Once again, I do not want to collect the AANJ-models. Several of this guitars that are mentioned in this thread have the AANJ. And yes due to finance issues I't will take a while to collect these guitars. The 700 series seems a bit easier to do. Maybe I'll start with that.

Yeah, those are hard to classify. They have a Jem neck joint but every one I've seen has had the cheaper 500 Series 5-way switch rather than the VLX53 that was used in the 700 Series and Jems.

Re: RG500 and RG700 collection?

Well he already has the RG765, so he's got the hard one out of the way there LOL!

I'd look for a '92-93 RG770 with direct mount pickups. You could also look for an RG770DX that had a clear pickguard and maple fretboard. RG760's are great guitars and really easy to find. RG750's are probably the most rare of the regular production 700 Series, but still not overly difficult to find.

If you really want to get picky, there is an RG770FM that had a flame maple veneer top.

One other guitar you could try to get is an RG1200.

Re: RG500 and RG700 collection?

There were a few more RG5xx's.......it might be tough to find them all.....LOL

RG517
RG527R
RG527RLTD
RG535
RG540
RG542AH
RG547AH
RG548
RG550-R
RG550MXX
RG550RXX
RG560L
RG570MH
RG581

I would try to collect one each of the RG7xx's and as many 5xx's as you can afford (and appeal to you)
