Okay so the pawn shop had an Ibanez Prestige in a Ibanez case for $850.
Based on the serial number I know it was made at the Fuji Gen plant 2008 and it was the 186th made in March.
It has the pick ups and looks of a RG1570 but I can't be certain.
Anyways, traded in my RG370DX, Fender Princeton 112 (solid state 60 W amp), Line 6 POD 2.0 (red bean). Boss ME 50, and a few pedals (Metal zone, Ibanez Delay D10, Danelectro Daddy O, and 3 other boss distortion/od pedals). They gave me $450 credit and I paid $150 as they priced it down to $600.
I might have been able to do better by selling on classifieds but the pedals would have been a tough sell.
At first I thought the guitar was black but it actually has a really dark blue hue and at different angles it sparkles with different shades of bright blue as flecks of glitter is worked into the paint. It reminds me of a fancy bowling ball or marble.
Neck feels awesome.
Was a little worried that there was something wrong with the neck as there was a rattling at the head stock when certain strings were strummed but it turned out to be a loss nut from the locking tremolo system. All three nuts were so loose I could work them with my hand.
Very happy to turn stuff that I wasn't interested in, into a kick ass guitar!
Here are some pics
The weird part is that there is nothing printed anywhere that suggests what type of guitar it is.
Awesome score, man. Excellent player. You'll be happy with that for a long time. Longest time I've ever owned a guitar, it was a 570. Had it for 10 years, and kept it stock the whole time. Only sold it to pay the rent when I was broke.
The world and his dog are gonna tell you those pickups suck. They don't. Those people suck.
