Might be true, thankfully, I'm not aware of those...No lamer than the seemingly far more common air-brished painted Jacksons or Deans though. I'm convinced one of them was the instigator.
My brain told me 7th Son of a 7th Son but nope.
This just popped up on my Reverb feed, never seen an SC in blue. Lovely.
Ibanez S Classic SC620. Premium range guitar in mid 90s. Very good if not excellent condition. All original apart from added gold Gotoh locking tuners (my addition - originals come with the guitar). This is potentially one of early prototype models as I dont think S Classics appeared in the ca...reverb.com
... why is that guitar rare? Low production number?
Made 2 years, offered only in Asia. They made them in 1997 (Wizard neck) and in 2002 (Ultra neck). The last 2 I saw for sale was $1,400 (sold) and $2,500 for sale now so they are pretty cheap, but really nice playing guitars.

A blue one with no pickups sold for 400ish CAD in Japan. I was bidding on it but fell asleep before it ended lol. Disappointed I missed out on it.
The RG620s at one time could be found at great deals because many had no clue what they were since they are not in the US or Asia catalogues.
Pricing on these are weird. Seems like those who know how rare and price them fairly high, but many still just dump them priced at the price of a 2620 since they are not in the catalogues.
I found mine in a Bali music store in mint condition for about $650 USD (which is a lot of money in Bali) and I actually purchased it for kids to use at our music school, Bali School of Rock, we run for the kids here. Seemed like a killer guitar for the money. . . I later realized it is one bad arse guitar for any amount of money although I did put a Suhr SSH+ in the bridge and now this thing sounds a killer as it plays.
I am super picky . . . I have abut 25 Custom Fender Strats back home in the US (only my Bali guitars listed in my sig below) that I have just left there as pretty much nothing but ESP Custom Shops make me happy now. I would rank my RG620 ahead of my Fenders and Custom Shop Les Paul Custom, but well behind my Custom Shop ESPs.

What is so special about these, specs wise, I mean...? Edge trem, 2 hums, a toggle switch instead of a blade one...?
