    Here is my MIJ 1989 RG760 in lipstick red :wub:! As you can kinda see, it's been beat up a little bit (hole on the lower cutaway), but it plays good as new (if not better) IMO :shred:

    Ibanez nerds already know them, but here's some specs:

    Gotoh tuners
    Ibanez Edge tremolo
    IBZ USA pickups
    Beehive knobs
    Wizard 1 neck

    For what it's worth, this guitar is totally outstanding! I bought it off eBay and received it with new strings. After a quick tune up it sounded great-- haven't had to intonate or set the action yet. Action is quite low. There's a great snap when I pick the strings and dat Wizard 1 neck is so fkn thin :D IBZ USA pickups are surprisingly awesome; I thought about switching them out but after hearing the stock pickups I am glad to keep them. Bridge pup handles chugs and leads with clarity and punch. The neck pup does what it should do-- single coil goodness! Middle is meh (who the fk uses the middle one anyways :lol:), not that I really tested it much, though.You would think that this thing would be going out of tune after abusing the tremolo, but nope, the Edge matched with Gotoh tuners keep it all tight and tuned

    Considering trading my Guitar Logistics S906 Drifter for a USA Custom Ibanez rg or other high-end late 80s/early 90s Ibbys. Definitely going to stock up on more of these kinds of RGs when I can :agreed:

    What a cool finish! I always loved the inlays on those old 7XX RGs, too. Congrats!

    Dude, I lmao'd at that :lol: I suppose the dude who had it before me took decent care of it :) On the lower cutaway it looks like a bullet went through they body... Like seriously something must've impaled the body. That's cool, though, only makes it more metuhl :hbang:

    Thanks, dudes! I think for $400 it was a good deal

    HNGD man..what a great 760 to be able to show off too.........

    FWIW.... the singles are actually stacked humbuckers in a single space..... both should be C2's. I too have quite a few 7xx's around the house here.

    Did it originally come with the beehive knobs and the rubber o-rings?

    When I was in 6th grade, the older guitarist in our schools Jazz Band had that exact guitar but with an X2N in the bridge. He tuned it down to drop C#(in those days it was called tuning to Eb and then playing in "Drop D") and we played it through a Marshall MG15 practice amp. I'm sure it sounded horrible but my memory recalls it being the best guitar tone imaginable!
