This just arrived :thumbs:

I thought it was unique enough to go for it. It's actually an 86 RG425PR...The pearl red is much darker in person...almost Ferrari red.

It's what I consider the era when Ibby began shreddifying their axes so I figured it would make a nice low buck ol' sister to the FP JEM.

Congratulations to Ibanez for going from an ugly headstock
to one of the coolest headstocks ever. :thumbs:

If I found a guitar like that, that I really liked
I could live with the old headstock, though. :eusa_shhh
