OGD: '89 Ibanez RG750WH

Hi guys! I actually have this guitar since a while, but never managed to do a proper NGD/review. I recently shot a vid with it, so it's time to write a couple lines too


But, most importantly, here's a video and a pic:






It's a '89 Ibby RG750 which should be plain white, but she likes tanning I guess It's almost stock and in extremely good conditions, I swapped the bridge pickup with a custom Haeussel. Love how it sounds and I admit the stock pickups are really good too!

Neck is unreal, definitely the thinnest I've ever played (still made in the Bensalem factory), and even thinner than other 90s Ibbies I have. At the same time it's insanely stable, maple quality at the time was far superior to the current production guitars imho.
It's currently strung with 10-46s but being the action so low (and no buzz at all) it's still very smooth to play.


I'd like to mod it a bit more, so thought about doing something like this (clear pickguard, volume knob in tone position), what do you think?




Despite the lack of proper pics this time, hope you liked this OGD!

Nice Guitar!

But clear pickguard may not work as you think it will. You're going to be able to see all the routed out wood through it, just fyi.

A white pickguard would be just a cool. Happy NOGD!

Good point. I'd sooner use a white pickguard.

HNGD! White guitars with black pickguards are the coolest, I'm going to make my stratocaster look like that.

Man. Older Ibanez guitars blow the newer ones out of the water.

Awesome guitar man. I'd swap in a set of Dimarzio's if I were planning on modding anything and call it a day.

Reminds me of an RG that I had, miss that guitar. Please don't ruin it with those red pickup bobbins, black and white is the ultimate!
