    Just got this RG body from my local classifieds for a reasonable price (i think?) and the seller said it was a RG550 body. My idea was to "upgrade" my RG450 with this body just because I prefer the upper neck access on the RG5xx's models compared to the 4xx's. I also prefer the barrel jack but...

    Hi! I recently started selling some of my guitars to try and condense my collection and I am having a little trouble with my player grade RG750. Unfortunately, the serial number sticker fell off so I can't figure out the exact date it was made. From my research, I think it might be a 1988...

    Hello! Located in Madrid, Spain, EU. Will only ship within the EU. Since I finally got my hands on a Jem 7vfp, I'm just not giving any attention to my other axes, so I just wanted to see if there was any love for this one before I swirl it. It is in original condition, except for the frets. I...

    Hi, I recently acquired an Ibanez RG470 that was made in Japan. All hardware seems original and it is in decent shape, save for a few nicks and dents on the body. What I'm struggling with is to identify the colour, as it seems not to be listed as a standard colour for the RG470's of the time. I...

    I'm looking for any info I can get on this 1990's Ibanez RG. The previous owner (almost 10 years ago) claimed its model number was RG520IX from what he heard from the previous owner and what he saw printed beneath the neck, but I've not checked this myself. It looks like a JPM, only black and...

    Awesome Ibanez RG750 from 1991 (Fujigen / Japan). Details to keep in mind: the original paint was removed, it has a symbol engraved next to the bridge, the pickguard has a small break, the rearside of the headstock has the typical surface cracks (something very common in these models) and...

    This is an RG520QSTB from 2000. It has a mahogany body with a quilted sapele veneer. It's the TB (Transparent Blue) finish. This guitar has seen its fair share of playing and has clear coat scratches to show for it. They're mostly on the back, probably mostly from buckle rash and such. Otherwise...

    Mint 1993 Ibanez RG 770 in a color that I think is a bit rare. I'm not entirely sure this is an RG 770, in 93 they are supposed to have sharktooth inlays, but it could have been made in late 92 and got the 93 serial number. If anyone knows for sure what model please reply to this post so...

    Looking for a FujiGen Ibanez RG with a Original edge or Edge lo-pro. An RG550/570 or maybe even a Saber series. Was considering purchasing a new Jem Jr but figured I would see what is available in the same budget as the Jem Jr. Thanks, Sport.

    I am trying to figure out which model RG this is. It's got a LO TRS 1 trem, it's also got a 1994 MIJ SN on the back of the headstock. The pickups are unmarked as well. It's got no pick guard, it has the AAJN. It's like a mystery to me. Anyone ever heard of a 1994 MIJ RG with a LO TRS trem...

    Hey there everyone, So I am an American living in Japan, and have found that getting some of the more rare Ibanez models is much easier and cheaper here. I got a rare Japan only S/S/H RG550 1987 model in Road Flare Red for example for only 200.00 bucks. (all RG550 models in 1987-1988 sent to the...

    Hey, this is my first post here. Back in '92, I bought a used RG760 in lipstick red that the clerk thought was some lesser model. He sold it to me with a Fender amp for around $300. It's been my main guitar for quite a while, although now I own a few more. I never could understand why it...
