http://cgi.ebay.com/Ibanez-RGA42FM-Prestig...p3286.m20.l1116

On the Ibanez website, they list the RGA...and then the RGA Prestige. The above guitar shows up in the regular RGA section. The only guitar listed in the RGA Prestige area is the RGA321. Is the seller misrepresenting this guitar?

Without seeing the serial on the back of the headstock, I can't really be 100% certain. However! What I've seen usually is the finish on the headstock of the non-prestige guitars usually matches that of the body (FM in this case) and the finish on the headstock of the prestige were all solid black. The one small pic of that guitar does look like there's a prestige headstock but I can't be certain without the serial.

Good catch! Still a great guitar though...but not a Prestige as the seller stated.

Yeah, I`d say Ibanez is one of the most fair companies when it comes to quality and price wink.gif
The only guitars I`m not to sure about is the most expensive Vai-guitar which in Norway retails at almost 30k (4500$ / 3000 € roughly). And I`ve noticed that in many of their newer prestiges, they have stock pickups (f.i. V7 and V8), not as much dimarzio and SD as they had before (may be that I`m completely wrong though, but I have that impression tongue.gif )
