NGD 1991 MIJ Ibanez RG570FM TB
« on: Time Format »

Ok guys! I bet SC is going to love this topic!  :lol:

I found this baby very, very close to my home...20 mins by car.
Today I played her and it has been love at first note!
Test these guitars into a clean Fender amp and you'll be sure if they play or not.

By the way, this beauty is a 100% original Ibanez RG570FM in Transparent Blue (but it's more a blue that turns to green) from 1991.
Made in Japan, of course.
Basswood body with a nice flamed maple veneer (it's not a real top), one piece maple neck (looks a quartersawn one), scarf neck (perfect joint!!!).
It's a bolt-on neck, 4 screws, neckplate and tilt joint system (remember the original FP Jem?).
Original pickups: V2 (bridge), S1 (middle), V1 (neck).
To be honest, I don't know why people hates this set of pickups so much: they are AWESOME!!!
I especially love the neck V1: it's a very open and articulate neck pickup!
Sounds like a single coil on steroids and it's not splitted!

Original Edge bridge, cosmo black hardware, Gotoh tuners.
Original Ibanez HSC (very good one).

The guitar is in very good shape and conditions.
Paint is 100% ok.
She just needs a good setup, new strings, some minor frets job, good cleaning and a couple of new studs for the Edge (one is broken).

I love her a lot already!
A good sister for my RG655 SPM.

Look at her...

N!ce! Golden era MIJ Ibby RGs are awesome guitars, especially with the V1/2 pickups. And those cases go for major $$$ nowadays.
Great find, happy NGD!!

I'm very happy with this guitar!
500 euros for the whole package are a good deal, being in Europe and not in Japan.  :lol: :lol: :lol:

As you said, SC....this is a Jem with a different painting and no monkey grip.

Finally completed!

Frets are ok, around 90%...so I can avoid reworking them so far.

That's a typical '90s RG...a great guitar with an awesome Wizard neck, the original Edge tremolo and the amazing V2-S1-V1 pickups set.
Once restored (new studs, new tremolo arm, new tremolo arm socket), the Edge reveals to be the best FR around.

Now I'm trading a F2/F1 IBZ USA pickup set...I want to test them and compare with V2/V1.
These are so cheap today that this kind of job is very easy to do.

Definitely, I love this guitar.

With the IBZ/USA F2-F1 combo you'll essentially transform the 570 into a 770...and believe me, with these pups you'll never look back.

That's the idea...  :banana:

I would keep the middle S1 single coil and replace the HBs with those IBZ/USA...
This is going to be 100% Ibanez guitar!  :headbanger:
