I never used to like Ibanez, but now I love them. I plan on buying some sort of Ibanez next time around.

RG321-non prestige low quality, HH no pickguard, Hard tail
RG370-non prestige, low quality HSH no pickguard, Edge III trem
RG550-non prestige, decent quality, HSH pickguard, Edge Trem
RG570-non prestige, decent quality HSH no pickguard, Edge trem
RG760-non prestige, good quality HSS no pickguard, Edge trem
RG1570-Prestige, decent quality, HSH no pickguard, Edge Pro trem
RG2550- Prestige, Good quality, HSH pickguard, Edge Zero trem
RG7321-non prestige, 7 string, low quality, HH no pickguard, hard tail

all the number mean something so it's not hard to remember what model has which if you aren't 'special'

has anybody heard any rumours about the RG760 being reissued? I know the 770 is gettin reissued but my mate is adamant that a guitar shop by mine is getting some RG760s in (or at least their modern equivalent)

Cool thread. After I pay off my amp, if I can be disciplined enough, I'm wanting to get a guitar and one of them is possibly an RG1570 :p We'll have to wait and see.

Considering ordering an RG....I played an RGT42FXQM in store and liked it very much, only complaints were a tad bit of fret buzz.

However I really would like to get something with the active emgs so I am leaning towards ordering this one RGT6EXFX. Appears to be the same thing just basswood and emgs.

Unfortunately I cannot find one of those around to test.

give me a hardware spec and I'll give you a name for it.
