View Full Version : NGD...Craigslist RG 565

My first NGD in awhile. I wasn't really looking for anything specific, but when I saw this under the heading "Ibanez electric guitar" I had to jump on it...considering how cheap I got it for.

This one had been lying around for a long time. The 4 strings that were left on it had to be at least 10 years old, and the frets were dirtier than anything I'd ever seen before. This one's in 6.0 to 7.0 out of 10.0 condition I'd say. There's a good size finish crack in the bass side of the neckpocket and a good size chip on the bottom edge of the body, and the knobs are pretty pitted, but more importantly there's no locking nut cracks at all.

I spent about an hour or so polishing the frets, and they're 1,000% improved. My allen wrench is a little chewed up and won't unlock two of the bridge clamps, so I haven't gotten to string her up yet.......gonna go to Lowes tomorrow and grab a few more wrenches and get her up and running.

Anyway.....here she is.

Love the necks on those, 'cept the rear mounted screws on the floyd nut.
That was one reason I sold the RB (besides being too light).

Most people never have one in their possession,
much less two! :notworthy

Oe of the stores I went to back in the day had one for sale, but I was about $100 short of buying it. :doh: Next time I went in there, it was gone.
Yes, it was lazer blue as well.
