  • ibanez Alex Skolnick sig model

    rg540? can anyone find a picture of this? all i can find are very small ones, this guitar must be kind of rare, my buddy has one and he wants me to refinish it, i need to know what the original colors were. emailed ibanez about a week ago, nothing back of course.

    I wouldn't refinish it.

      someoen else already did, and they did a real **************** job, and he got the guitar really cheap because of it, so we want it back to an original, or close to original color.

        Pretty cool, looks kinda like a Jackson Demon, but cooler IMO.
        What color are y'all shooting for?

          Stock colors were Black, Desert Yellow, and Purple Neon.

            What is funny is it just like today, where they show the guy playing the guitar in a color you can't buy.

            I think the White looks the best of those colors.

              I thought Alex used to play the Ibanes Radius, the basis for the Satriani Sig model. I believe orange was an common finish for this model. I would go with the Desert Yellow ala F Gambale.

                He played the S540LTD for a long time, as well as an RG or two IIRC.
                Later, he played the GR (Ghostrider) series for a while.

                  Guitar pictured looks like the stock but very rare color from 1988/1989 Fire-Alarm Red (really a vivid orange color). I have the earlier 540 Power guitar (think Joe Satriani's Not of This Earth album cover and he is playing a white HSS model) and mine is Fire-Alarm Red and it is the ultra rare triple coil humbucker in bridge. Coolest color ever for guitar and too bad they abandoned it so early.
