Very rare first year 1997 Ibanez Prestige RG3180 RV Royal Violet guitar with the most stunning flame top we have ever seen in this color! This was the first year of the Prestige line, and you can see from the custom shop serial number on the back of the neck that it was made in their custom shop alongside the J.Custom series. This model was only made for 1997 before Ibanez did a lot of design changes to their Prestige line! There are so many unique features for this first year release. You get a larger mother-of-pearl Ibanez logo on the headstock because the word "Prestige" does not appear there and instead is inlaid at the 24th fret! This color was the only one you could get for this model, and the quality of the flame top is incredible. Mahogany body provides tremendous tone. You get three very diverse DiMarzio pickups that give you more sound/tone options than any modern Ibanez I can think of: Super 3 (bridge), Blue Velvet (middle), and FRED in the neck position.
