    So this guy has been posting this guitar for quite some time now, and I just want general information on it. (IE: What is it? Is it quality? etc)

    Thanks a bunch :)

    It's not really helpfull, but it reminds me of bc rich gunslinger, so I suggest cheking out old catalogues, from 90s, hope that will help somehow.

    It's an old ST III. Not a USA model. (It would have it written on the front of the headstock).

    Wish I could help you, I know my way around some BCs but not the STIIIs.

    This one could be a Japan-made, but again, I'm not sure.

    That is definitely an ST-III. Not sure exactly which one, though. I have an NJ Series ST-III and it plays beautifully.

    That is a USA made ST3 - stripped of it's finish
    Dates to around 87/88 I reckon
    Neck profile was designed by Wayne Charvel
    Got a serial number?

    Can't see detail of floyd very well - they used Floyd original/Ibanez Edge and then Tekeuchi.(depends what stock they could buy at the time)

    Knobs make it look early in the run unless they have been changed.
    I owned a few of those and a couple of Gunslingers too.

    I still have a hybrid in my stash (ST3 neck on Gunslinger body)
