My friend has one, replace the trem and pickups and you have a nice guitar.

Alexi Laiho recorded Something Wild with an Ibanez RG 220B through a 5150.

Just some info you might like..

not bad. pretty cheapass sounding though, obviously you're better off with a rg550/750/770 etc.

your amp and eq set up would be what would shape your sound more so than the pup. any high gain pup would work fine though. doesn't mustaine use a duncan jb in the bridge and a jazz in the neck?

edit... forgot to mention, i think i used to own that exact guitar. where did you get that pic?

....

how'd you find that out? Anyways, I have an rg 270dx and the trem isn't the best. I don't know pickups, but at the moment I'm fine with the way it is now. the only thing I hate about this guitar is the fact that my forearm touches the guitar body not on that shaped flat part so it can be uncomfortable sometimes.

i've got an rg550 and i had an rg470 and it was very comparable to both. i swapped out the bridge pup for an x2n as soon as i opened the box so i honesstly don't know what it sounds like stock. before i got rid of it i dropped the original pup back in. it came set up perfectly. the intonation was right on. i honestly don't know why i ever bought it. money to burn i guess. i had like 5 or 6 guitars all ready including the rg470. that's kind of why i got rid of it.

rg550 and rg470 and this ones very comparable im guessing a yes.

yeah. if you can live without the sharktooth inlay and you plan on picking up new pups then it's a great guitar. especially for the money. i don't know if you can find a better guitar in that price range. i may be wrong but i believe the 220b's are made from all the same materials as the 470's and the 3xx's from that time. the pickups and electronics were where they cut the cost down. and the bridge. it's not the lo pro or whatever it's called. it's the ibanez import type. but it's still decent, imo.

yeah. that's the same trem. all floyd-style locking bridges like that are licensed by floyd rose. he has a patent on the design. all the jackson, ibanez, bc rich, esp, etc are all licensed by floyd rose. even if it's their own offshoot like the lo pro form ibanez. the trem on this guitar is just an import version of the lo pro. same shit, made in a different place. justin also had an ibanez 7 string of mine. it looks like it's gone now though. did you check out brian hoffman's custom bc rich's he's got?
