In 1990 I played a used RG at a local music store. I instantly fell in love with it. A friend talked me out of it and I ended up buying an EX. I still regret it. Im on a hunt to get one like it or build one myself. Im not exactly sure which model it was. It was bright orange. I do not think it had a pickguard. It seems like it had a all maple neck. 22 years later my memory doesnt serve me. Now ive searched the internet for that model. The only model in orange ive seen is a 560. All the 560's ive seen have had rosewood fingerboards. Did i just have a very rare RG in my hands or is my memory failing? Any insight would be great. Thank you

Ibanez wiki says the rg560 had carotene in 88 and maple in 88-90. Good luck finding one. I got a maple 550 neck for my 560 body, not going orange though. There are some close matches at House of Kolor, maybe you can piece your dreams together. :)

We had a few listed right here not long ago.

The orange rg560 was my first real guitar. It wasn't maple and the headstock was black for sure. I lent it to a "friend" in the 90s and never saw it again.
