SOLD - Ibanez RG760 Snakeskin 1989

Shipping calculated at checkout.

We recently traded in some guitars that you wouldn't normally find here, this is one of them!

While the pointy guitars do seem out of place here, I guess it makes sense in a way.  At one point, my old music store was a really successful Ibanez dealer, and we had something in stock for everyone.  History repeats itself!

I did a good bit of poking around out there as we prepared to list this one.  It departs from several means of placing the model.  The neck heel, for instance, says RG-750.  However, the pickup configuration is that of an RG-760. and several Ibanez forum posts reference this finish type and pickup config as a 760.  It seems that this might have been meant for overseas dealers as most of the chatter I found was from the UK.

An area I am foggy on with these is the pickups.  There seems to have been some soldering done in the control cavity, and I'm not sure if this is due to a pickup swap or just some rewiring/maintenance.  The bridge pickup is a DiMarzio DP161, and the neck and mid pickups are not branded anywhere. 

The neck is in excellent condition with a tested and functional truss rod.  The body is in nice condition with one dinged area on the lower bout's front edge as well as a touched-up chip on the back edge in the same area. Equipped with a Licensed Floyd Rose tremolo. Ibanez hardshell case included.
