This is an amazing guitar!
I got a amazing deal on it $200 with a hardshell case.
It's the 1997 model in rare Purple Pearl with Cosmo Black Hardware, Original Super Wizard neck with Bubinga strip, and Original Ibanez EDGE!

Like it's half brother branded as "yamaha RGX", these are (in my opinion) the most versatile guitar for the money.

The yamahas have a different neck than the ibanez.......not as fast as a wizard neck.

It doesn't matter which guitar I start my "daily metal moment" with because I always end switching to one like yours because it just feels right and does everything well.

Nice score and cool color option.

Not mine below.....mine is black and scratched to hell from years as a "emergency spare house guitar" but it just keeps on working and working well and it has the same edge trem that is different than the one pictured.

The wizard neck might put the ibanez into better company that the neck yamaha uses.

Greed, I actually got mine the same way you got yours, for even less i might add. They truly are great guitars, it honestly is a very comfortable guitar to play, and I normally don't like thin necks like that, and the stock pickups are pretty good. Mine was MIJ, but no hard case.
Congrats

Nice! I'm curious about why they would put an original edge on it.

The original edge is stock the guy didn't change it. Ibanez stopped putting the original edge on the Rg570 on 1991 for the edge Lo Pro until 1996 then they put the original edge back in 1997 for whatever reason I guess it was customer demand.
