Picked up this guitar from Guitar Center online, from the Spartanburg SC store for $400. I was very nervous about buying it sight unseen but after talking to one of the GC sales workers over the phone I went ahead and scooped it up. The RG520QS is a Japanese two humbucker RG with the original Edge bridge and original Wizard neck. Unlike most RG's this one is Mahogany. This guitar originally had either a trans black rootbeer finish or trans blue finish over a Quilted Sapele top. One of the previous owners of this guitar definitely refinished it to an oil finish, and did a very good job. The original finish on these guitars got very dark over time, obscuring the quilted finish. The quilt on this one really pops. This guitar came in its original hard shell case and what looks like its original whammy bar. RG520's came with the V7 and V8 pickups originally, but this has an unknown Seymour Duncan pickup in the bridge and an unlabeled pickup in the neck. Once I put new strings on I'll pull them out to find out what they are. Somebody had wired a three way switch with the usual bridge and neck positions and the middle spot being a killswitch instead of both. The pups sound OK but this guitar is destined for some new pups. The Edge bridge is the bomb! The whammy bar is too loose so I'll have to figure out that issue. It came very well set up and plays like butter. This is by far the thinnest neck guitar that I own (and that I've ever played for that matter.) There is something special about these 1990's Japanese Ibanez guitars. The quality of this guitar is stellar. It has some minor scuffs here and there but overall it is in excellent condition. It came with 9-42 strings which are not my thing. I'll be putting on some D'addario NYXL 11-56's and tuning to drop C which is my preferred tuning. I'm thinking about either Fishman Fluence KSE or Tosin set, or maybe Dimarzio Titans. What should I put in there? And yes this thread is worthless without pics but I'll post them soon.
