    Calling all Ibanez experts... Thinking about picking this up tomorrow. I was surprised that the case wasn’t red-lined, and doesn’t say prestige on it? Not that it would be a big deal to not have the prestige case, but just wanna make sure that or anything else isn’t fishy about the listing! $1100 Canadian is about 830 USD right now.

    Thanks!

    The guitar itself seems right from what I can tell. Might just be a different case, or they didn't offer those red-lined prestige cases at the time.

    If I remember correctly that model came with a Tone Zone and Air Norton combo so not original pickups but that is fine because IMO it wasn’t a great combination. Otherwise seems right.

    Pictures aren't the best, but it looks fine.
    I'm pretty sure that case isn't original.
    Price sounds about right though.

    If when you mention the Prestige labeling you're talking about the guitar, then yes, something is off- as that model should definitely say 'Prestige' on the headstock.

    Oh I meant the prestige label on the case. From surfing google images it seems like a lot of these are photographed in a black-lined case, and that there appears to be (less common) black as well as blue-lined prestige cases.

    Looks fine to me. My RG1570 had the exact same case. I don't see any red flags here.

    Hi, the guitar looks good. Bridge humbucker is ToneZone, neck is PAF pro, look at pole pieces. And the case ... I have the same for J custom, only difference is small Ibanez label on J Custom cas.
