Brand new/unplayed condition. Just like the great old RG550’s of the 80s and 90s, the new Genesis Collection are made in Japan with all the quality you expect in these fine guitars. I especially love this Purple Neon finish which reminds me of the old Kramer Flip Flop finishes as it changes color depending on the angle you’re viewing it from and/or lighting. This one has one great mod: a new set of Seymour Duncan (pic) humbuckers (TB6 Duncan Distortion Trembucker and SH6 Duncan Distortion) has been installed by my man Martin. Original V7/V8 pickups are included but after you hear it with the Duncans I doubt that you’ll want to swap them out. The middle pickup is the stock Ibanez S1 single coil. Specs of this guitar are pretty much unchanged: basswood body is warm sounding with great mids, 5-piece maple/walnut Super Wizard neck that’s among the easiest to play, classic-style tilt neck joint with stamped metal plate and contoured heel/cutaway for easy access to the upper frets, HSH pickup configuration for a wide variety of tones, Ibanez Edge locking tremolo for great intonation and dive-bomb trem effects, Gotoh MG-T machine for excellent tuning stability, black hardware and headstock painted to match the body. This one is offered with an absolutely killer in-house set up and it’s offered in mint condition – plastic still on the pickguard, etc. These are running $999 new without a case or gigbag. Get this one, with $158 worth of Duncans installed for just $699. If you want a case, I have a brand new Ibanez M100C case ($139-$199 online) for just $85 more.
