Description

When it was introduced in 1992 the Ibanez RG470 was intended to be a more economical version of the RG570 - which in turn was a no-pickguard version of the iconic superstrat the RG550. Like these other RG models the RG470 has a humbucker- single coil - humbucker pickup configuration as well as a double locking tremolo. Ibanez discontinued the RG470 in 2004

The RG470 was made in Japan for the first two years of its production (1992-1993). During this time the RG470 had an Ibanez Edge tremolo and older style square neck-joint with neck plate. It also had exactly the same pickups as the RG550 and RG570: an IBZ V7 humbucker at the neck, an IBZ S1 single coil and an IBZ V8 humbucker at the bridge. The body was basswood with a Wizard profile maple neck, rosewood fingerboard and dot position markers.

From 1994 onwards production moved to Korea. The tremolo was changed to a Lo TRS II, pickups were changed to Infinity and the neck profile changed. The Korean made RG470s were available in the USA until 1998, and until 2000 in Europe and Japan

1998 saw a new Japanese made RG470, for distribution within the USA (until 2002). This second Japanese made RG470 had IBZ pickups and a Low TRS tremolo (changed to an Edge Pro in 2003). For the final 2 years (2003-2004) of its production the RG470 was only available in Japan.

The Japanese made models (1992-1993 and 1998-2004) had better hardware than the Korean ones and could be considered the more desirable instruments.
 

This guitar is used and shows plenty of signs of wear with assorted dings and scuffs on the body as shown. See pics for full cosmetic details.
