    Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar: Ibanez RG8570 J.Custom in Deep Red
    Modifications (if any): Golden EVO frets installed professionally
    Accessories (hardshell case etc): OHSC, trem arm, COA
    Location (City,State or City,Country): Helsinki, Finland
    International OK? : Yes
    Contact Info (No Phone #s) PM, email at kosunen(_at_)gmail
    References (eBay or other forum userid): Lots of deals here, locally on muusikoiden.net (ibnz)
    Price (include currency and if firm/obo): 1650 EUR

    Here's a gem from the mid 2000's - a Deep Red j.custom with just the perfect set of appointments: Edge Pro, mahogany body, flame top, matching headstock, not super thin neck, DiMarzio pickups, offset dots (the vine is nice, but can be too busy visually) on rosewood and finally beautiful golden EVO frets.

    For those who don't know, the EVO fret material, it's copper alloy (no nickel), lasts very long and sits between nickel silver and stainless steel in regard to hardness. No plating - it's gold colored all the way through.

    Otherwise it's stock and includes the original case and COA. Condition is very good overall.

    Guitar in Helsinki, Finland. Shipping around EU ~50 euros - I can split the fees.

    Some pics are from before the guitar returned to stock, I'll take better ones tomorrow

    Spec info update - I misspoke and the guitar is not 100% stock. The JB in the bridge stays in as the original TZ got lost.

    The guitar is well worn in and plays absolutely fantastically. Neck thickness is ~20 mm at 1st fret, a smidge rounder than the basic Wizard profile.

    Updated price to 1600 EUR due to pickup configuration not being original.

    The first pic displays the only visible flaw - a finish chip

    Pickups swapped to Duncan Distortions (TB-6, SH-6n). Massive tones

    This is my 'your guitars and guns' entry ;)
