    I recently purchased both a Japanese RG1570 from 2002 (Yes, the serial number on the neck says 2002) and a Korean RG420FA from 1998. After years of playing diverse strats, finally playing RGs is a blast. In my subjective opinion, both sound great, feel fast have a good clear sound. The 1570...

    Hello, I have a question about the 1986ish RG420. What is the distance (center to center) between the the volume & tone holes on the RG420 guitar? I have a 1986 RG410 that I will be adding a tone control to so I'd like to put it in the same location that Ibanez did when they built the...

    I'm selling an Ibanez RG420 EG Bio Armor in very good condition. You don't see these too often! There are two small dings (see photos) but other than that, everything plays and sounds great. It definitely looks great with the pattern routed into the body and the stone texture finish. Guitar...

    I'm over on talkbass trying to sell this an figured there would be far more fans of this fine instrument here! So I bought this guitar last year, and it has remained in the case for all but a few playing sessions, so I think its time to let this go to a more interested owner. Purchased for...

    I'm selling an Ibanez RG420. The guitar was made in Japan like the best of them in the Fujigen factory; but has the cheaper trem. It's a player with dings, dents, scratches, etc... Finish (only the finish) is cracked in a couple of places on the back. Frets have wear, but not too bad. Cool...

    Hi! This is my RG 420, it has a cinammon top and a flat finish. I've had it for 6 months and love it! But I've a small problem with it... Finger grease will stain the finish very easily. In the picture, you can see it as a dark area around the volume knob. I've tried microfiber cloths, but...

    I have a 2001 RG421 which is a string-thru body RG. One of the string ferrules in the back has fallen out and disappeared. Does anyone know what size they are so I can order some? Stew-Mac has a couple of different ones, and I don't wanna get stuck with the wrong ones. Thanks.

    Looking for a good metal / rock guitar at a reasonable price. Saw that the RG420 Brown Burst Flat Cinnamon is on sale at MF for $399. Gonna see if GC locally has it tomorrow to see how my fingers like it. Should I consider or look at something else? Want to stay in the under $700 range.
