im looking at a guitar. its an ibanez, but i dont know much more. the man in the shop says it was made in the late 80's to the early 90's, but couldnt tell me a model. can anyone tell me what it could be? it looked kind of like the RGA style, but an extra pickup.. the pickups said IBZ V2, which i assumed stood for Ibanez version 2. he asked about $250, if that helps. i also want to know if its worth buying really.

also first time posting, so if i did anything wrong or that i shouldnt have, tell me. thanks guys.

like this? the description you gave is really really vague, but thats what it sounded like to me. the guitar i posted was an RG570. was the bridge a floating tremolo? ibanez stock pickups are usually dimarzio IBZ's. they're USA made dimarzio's made especially for ibanez guitars.

careful though TS, it could just as easily be a crappier model that looks pretty much identical but has a **** trem

what the person a few posts above me meant about being higher than an edge 3 is anything lower haha basically an original edge and edge pro are ok. my guess is a late 80's or early 90's ibanez would have an original edge on it.

i don't even think they had an edge 3 then. at the very worst it might be a vintage trem, like on an old Roadstar.

anyway you should be alright. but definitely try before you buy, and ask him what the exact model is.

yeah if its old it won't be an edge 3 but an equally crappy lo-trs II or something like that, i forget exactly what they're called

It wont have an Edge 3, they came in 2003-4ish. Old Roadsters had an ok or a great trem, the oldest ones had the Pro Rock'r and newer ones had the Original Edge. At the very worst it could have a Lo TRS, which are even worse than the Edge 3.

yes! that first pic was exactly like the one i was looking at, right to the bridge. front and back. i didnt open the back, but it was like that. thanks so much bullet16. ill check on that bridge to see if its anything good. again, thanks so much.

I'd check for a serial number so you can date it, and then check Ibanez Rules for catalogues for the original specs.

I mean they all have a similar feel/ look , i cant tell a good one from a sucky one at mere sight or without looking at the headstock to see a model number.
