Hey guys!!!

2 days ago, at a music shop I saw a used Ibanez on the wall, for only $299!Made in Japan. Now, what would a Japanese Ibanez be doing on the wall for $299?! I tried it out and it was a dream to play! I memorized to serial number(F915116) and went home to do some research. The guitar was made in the fujigen(sp?) factory in 1991. I asked for identification help on UG and a user told me it was an rg 760. I went on ibanezrules.com to the 1991 catalogue and i found it! It looked exactly the same. I checked the price list and in 91 and it was $999!

Yesterday i went back to the shop, and bought it. I am so happy with the guitar and i know it was a good one! I even went across the street to a different guitar shop, and they said it was a steal! The workers play it and were amazed!

Anyway enough with the talking, here are some pics(i took these on a disposable cam with flash, so they may not be that great)

Fujigen's number is a bit different from Cort or World (Korean) factory. The 15116 is the production number, you can check the 89 catalog if you like.

Relax, like i said in your previous thread, this guitar is a goldmine , to me at least...
It has a really wonderful trem that you cant find it anymore on new production Ibanez, the only down side would probably caused by the neck heel joint. Upgrade the pickup, and you got yourself a hell of a guitar dude, definetely a keeper. Congratz

Your a dummy

If you dont like the edge, than you dont like trems period.

Edges are the one of the best ever made IMO.


Nice find, 299$ is a steal for a 7xx series.

Yeah i just bought the whammy bar today, thats why its not in the pic, and im having so much fun :P

what do you mean about the neck heel joint, is it just bad, cause i have limited access and i could have more with the aanj or that a problem will come up or something?

And the humbucker looks a bit rusty or oxidized and the paint from the knobs is wearing off. I'll paint the knobs and switch the pick up.

What pickup can i swap it for? I dont know anything about pickups, but Vai and Satch use Dimarzios on theirs, so any dimarzios good?

AANJ could give you a little more range rather than a block heel joint but i've tried both and its fine for me, only that the block side might poke you or stop you when you're trying to reach the high frets fast .

And yeah, DiMarzios are the way to go, designed perfectly well to accomodate basswoods guitar (Ibanez).

congrats man, that's a score. The original Edge is a kickass trem, don't worry about it, mine is almost 20 years old and still holds tuning perfectly. I don't think you'll have any problem with access to the frets, the old heel doesn't get in my way at all. I think they changed it because a lot of the older models started getting stress cracks on the finish right at the neck joint. I really like that it's HSS too, that's what I'm looking for in my next guitar actualy. Enjoy your new axe man.

Also, my bar was pretty stiff at first, but if you like a loosley free bar, just dab a little marvle oil, or a bit of 3in1 to free er' up, if you like loose bars.
