    Hi, this is for me an unexpected NGD as I had so long loved that rare Iron Purple finish.
    Found it in my country and paid it a fair price, here is an Ibanez RGR570IPP
    If I'm not mistaken, it was only made for the european market in 1999
    The real color is hard to photograph, or I'm bad at catch it !

    A lot of dings on the body but the neck is immaculate

    Nice finish + matching AND reverse headstock is..............PURE WIN !!!

    Very nice! Would you mind telling me how much you paid?

    I would love a similar guitar.

    nice catch ! I had once a RGR570 in what I think was Iron Pewter finish (metallic/flaked dark grey), ... which I regret now selling it.

    Question: Is that neck a bubinga striped one or plain maple?

    Is that the "grape ice" color? I have never heard of "Iron Purple".

    Iron Purple exists. It's a late 90s color. Grape Ice was way earlier and was a very short lived color.
