$ 794.47

This is a Ibanez RG505 from 1998

“The RG505 is an RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 1995. It was made in Japan by FujiGen.

The RG505 features a basswood body bolted to a maple neck with a black headstock and a 24-fret rosewood fretboard with dot position markers. Components include an Edge double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut and pickguard mounted Ibanez pickups in an HSH configuration.

The RG507 is a similar model without the pickguard. The RG550 is a similar model with a slightly different neck profile. The RG505 was sold only in Europe and was discontinued after 1999. “

This one is from 1998 and is in original condition with the original V8 S1 V7 pickups and the Edge tremolo. The frets have been levelled and crowned and polished but they still have 70-80% still left in them. The Edge trem is in very good condition with no pitting or gunk in it at all. Everything functions well including all teh electronics work fine.

The condition of the body shows loads of dings and scratches and swirling. Lots of edge chipping. I tried to take pictures of most of the dings. Check the Imgur album too for a few more pictures.

The neck is straight and truss rod works fine.

The guitar comes in a Ibanez Chainsaw hardshell case which has seen better days.
