Hi,

I'm about to buy an used J. Custom RG 8670. Year 2004. I can't see it in person, because the guy lives 3800 km away from me, so I'm just seeing photos. The guitar looks very good, maybe too good to be true.

I asked him about the frets, and he said the frets are "like new". Is there a chance that this guitar never had a fretjob? Maybe the frets have been swapped? It's a 15 years old guitar, after all. Picture is below.

I purchased a 2001 RG-520 with OHSC & its original tool kit & paperwork, including store tags & Ibanez inspection tag. Apparently sat in the case all these years. It happens. I also purchased a Roadstar 2 that looks like it went through 30 years of world tours. I did a refretting on that one. They both play great. A good design is a good design no matter what the age.

Just looks like a guitar that hasn't been played much to me. Fingerboard and frets appear to get in great condition in that pic.
