    Cool Re: Ibanesz Owners Help!

    I own an Ibanez RG7421 Japanese made 7-string
    I was told if if the frist number is 4 it was made in japan

    In my case the first number is 7 only because it's a seven string.

    JB_From_Hell definetly prefers the Japanese Made Ibanez's, so I'm sure he will chime in.

    I had an rg470L (approx '96 model) and pulled the neck off and constructed a new body (after about 7yrs use stock) as I found it sounded a little thin for my liking, however a pickup replacement may help this.... the body is still lying around unused at home.... the trem plate has worn a little where it meets the posts... I like the neck on this guitar... not posting from home so I'll have to have a look whether it was made in japan...

    I was always under the impression that the RG5 series and up were Japanese made.

    On the "S" series the S3 and up were made in Japan.

    Keep in mind this is based on what we get in America. Ibanez may do things differently for other countries.

    The only way to tell is looking at the back of the headstock, and it'll say made in Japan/Korea.

    If I was the one that told you 570 & up is Japanese, I was wrong. I've seen Japanese & Korean 470s.
    Buy the book in my avatar. It's pretty cool.

    by virtue of its serial number, which starts with 'F', it's a Jap model. however, it sports the dreaded TRS vibrato, which i would avoid totally...

    OK, it has the TRS Floyd Rose?!!? if i changed it to OFR or Gotoh or Schaller? will it turn to a good Guitar? And the neck of a RG470 LTD. is a lot thin? or a little rounded on the back of the neck!?

    here´s some pics of It

    many people prefer the necks on the 400 series, it's a Wizard II with a more rounded, thicker profile than the Wizard found on the 500 series. Just swap out the TRS for an original Floyd and you'll be set
