hi, i need some help on identifying an ibanez electric guitar. Its an RG but I'm not sure which model it is. I saw it at a guitar shop, and it was a used guitar. I asked what model it was and they took it to the back and said it was a RG 370. I'm not sure if theyre right.

It said made in Japan and I remember the serial number was F915116. It was also priced at $299.

can anyone help?

If it's made in Japan, and the Ibanez logo and the headstock is a foil chrome color, then buy it! That has to be a 5xx model atleast!


I dont think the ibanez logo on the headstock was chrome colour it was just plain old white

Could you describe the body color, color of the headstock, and does it have pickguard? Also, what is the pickup combination?

The body colour is blue, with no paint pattern. The headstock blue with normal white ibanez logo, it does not have a pickguard and the pick up combo is H-S-S.

Its a goldmine, to me atleast, but just dont get exited yet, try to see whether the neck joint is AANJ or just normal neck heel. Or can you remember it?

glad i could help, do post some pics when you got it

* to spoil the fun, remember, 2nd hand guitars doesnt always mean that they're 100% original from the factory, neck maybe swapped and god knows what the previous owner did to that guitar.

grrr.... i'm positive that its real and everything, same pick up combo, on the pick ups it says IBZ USA, it has a backplate, i checked the serial numberon ibanezrules.com, and everythings the same. its from 1991 and on the knobs i see theyre a little worn out.
