RG-ARCH1 Red copyright sprite

The Ibanez RG-ARCH1 is a J Custom RG series guitar model produced only in 1997 in very small numbers. It was part of a showcase series of guitar models created for the worldwide introduction of the J Custom models in 1997.

Basic features are the mahogany body with maple top, bolt-on maple Wizard neck, DiMarzio pickups and a Lo-Pro Edge tremolo. The RG-ARCH1 also has some very unique visual features like gold flake body and neck binding, the ebony fingerboard, pearl and gold flake inlays and the solid arched top. It is the first RG model with an arched top, a feature that wouldn't return until 2005 with the introduction of the RGA series.
