So I am looking around the local guitar shop, right, and a certain Ibanez catches my eye...

Turns out they had a 00' RG470 on sale for $349.99. So I bought it. Cause its MiJ and cool. Also Purple.

The finish is called Titanium Ice. You don't mess with that. does though.

nothing wrong with the lo-trs... its MiJ and is not plagued like the TRSII or TRS. The knife edges are still pretty much perfect after 9 years of ownership..

Well if it works, great. I was just going off what i've read which i will quote here.

"Ibanez Lo-TRS
1994. Lo TRS I / II

These created a monster. For almost ten years, Ibanez was known for producing guitars equipped exclusively with the highest quality trems. All until the introduction of LoTRS pair. Is are Japanese, IIs are Korean, but both are lousy."

So that's what I was talking about. Like i said though, if it works, great.

Yeah. It's not the best but its not complete crap as everyone seems to think. I'm considering swapping in an ofr...

You'll have to do something about that lo-TRS trem but otherwise HNGD


agreed, it's a nice guitar other than the trem.

Quote by azn_guitarist25
wouldn't an original edge fit in the same route?


unfortunately, no.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Nice buy the sad thing is I remember when those guitars were new. I always thought it was a cool color.
