    I've found a 1999 MIJ Rg450AH at a very nice price. (300€. In comparison, a brand new RG550 costs 930€ here in Denmark). From the serial, I know it's made at the fujigen factory. Is it safe to assume it therefore has the same build quality and quality control as the more expensive guitars from...

    Ibanez' big announcement was leaked in a facebook group today with Steve's new PIA model. There are some pretty radical changes, I'm kinda sad about the monkey grip, but stainless steel frets is a big plus. I can't help but wonder if the Art JEMs were a better direction to go in, I'd take a...

    I recently saw a used Ibanez RG (not sure of the number number) that was made in Japan. The serial number indicates it is a 2001 model. Aside from the obvious tributes to the 1987 RGs and modernization, how does everyone think the Genesis series RGs compare to a Japanese-made RG from the early...

    I am looking to sell my Ibanez S series. It is in excellent condition. I am the second owner of the guitar, previously was owned by a buddy of mine that played it only a handful of times. I have never gigged with it, and I have played it sparingly over the years (which is why I am finally...

    2010 S5470 Prestige MIJ in Translucent Black Sunburst (TKS), with the titanium reinforced neck, ZR2 bridge, Hot Grinder 1 & 2 and Short Tracer 2 pickups, original Prestige HSC. Some honest wear on the body under the control plate. What would you say is fair, honest market value? Considering...

    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...

    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.

    Hi everyone, I'm in the process of buying a new guitar (well a used one actually), and I found two pretty nice offers which I can't chose between : 1991 MIJ RG570FM -> 320€ 2009 MIJ RG1570 -> 375€ They are both in very good condition and I have a hard time chosing between the two. These days...

    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...

    I'm looking at this guitar in my area, but it's rather perplexing. Listed as an 'RG-7', there's a scrupulous lack of information considering the price... seems really steep. But then there's the DNA neck, the neon green knobs and dimarzio pickups which would be reminiscent of a Uv7, but are...

    Hey everyone, Found a seller online with a 94 RG550LTD in somewhat used condition for a rather good price. I've always wanted the LTD and even though it needs a lot of work, I didn't have to think twice considering it was for a fantastic price. It's a nice guitar. The neck feels thicker than...

    (linked amazon . com link for BFP.. says indonesia for source) So what do I have to do to get a MiJ BFP? My main question is, what is the difference between the Evo pickups and the Gravity Storms? Where can I hear the difference? has Vai recorded any with the Gravity Storms ?

    Hi, this may be tough to find but I've got a Japan made Ibanez RX and the neck is too thin. I've played the Timmons neck and it's a whole lot better for my hand and wrist. Anyone have an MIJ Andy Timmons neck they would be willing to part with? AT100, AT200, etc, I think they should all be...

    So up for sale is my trusty Jackson DKMGT. Amazing build quality being a MIJ and is a lot of guitar for the money! It's got a Seymour Duncan Custom in the bridge and an Iron gear Rolling Mill in the neck. A custom killswitch has been fitted, and the tone knob is a coil split so there's a...
