Re: Awesome gold J-custom with birds

I guess Rich would remember, my GOLD1 has a different headstock than other GOLD1. I've seen pictures of at least two different RG-GOLD1 on the web and they both have "J-Custom" decal, but mine is the typical Ibanez logo except it is "etched" or "engraved" and not a decal. Sorry for the poor description but you'll see once I post some pics.

Lately I discover another thing different about my GOLD1 - the pickups. I notice that the neck and bridge pickups have chromed hex screws (not flat head screws + fixed poles like you see in Air Norton or Tone Zone). Eventually I will take them out to check the DPxxx numbers on the back, but until then I don't think they are TZ/BV/AN combination.

Re: Awesome gold J-custom with birds

Grazie per le immagini! It's really wonderful. I love how you see the grain of the wood, in the gold. Is that yours, nuno?

Re: Awesome gold J-custom with birds

I assume it made $1300 on top of the starting bid? I don't know much about 3-bay...

But, if the guy sold it for less than it was worth, that would suck, imo... I mean, this guitar has actual gold in it, man! Surely, it's gotta be worth more than $1300??

As little as that? I would have thought the rarer J-C's would command a good price.

I have to say I love the birds. It's one of the things I like best!

And I can't believe this thing is hard to sell. I got the idea the 'vital gold' RG, was/is less popular than the 'vital silver' RG, too. A golden JS would probably not be a good move for Ibanez, either, then.

Re: Awesome gold J-custom with birds

It is gold leaf under clear. The GOLD1 is the same except the whole guitar is [where the 2 is silver paint back and sides], and doesn't have the bird decals. It was the stick on decals that kind of lamed it AFAI was concerned.
