Can anyone tell what kind of of guitar is in this picture?

[link removed]

At first I thought it was a Gibson Explorer but it doesn't look like one.

I really need to stop looking at what artists use.............makes me want them.

Wow.........you guys recognized it fast! Not sure how you did that but thank you. Good thing it is an Ibanez and not a Gibson. It's a lot cheaper.

I don't think its any of those guitars. It's a discontinued model from the 70s or even 80s. They also had flying V. They stopped making that headstock quite a while ago now. Look at some of Paul Gilbert's early videos, and those are the guitar he uses,

The headstock - and the logo printed on it - are current with the Ibanez:

(can't seem to link directly the the Ibanez picture, but have a look

...and Gilbert has been endorsing Ibanez for at least 15 years

I think Ibanez changed from a "spaghetti" logo to a printed letter logo back in 82, so that guitar can be quite old, and is definately discontinued, as i didn't find it at their website. Those links other people sent(i mean the guitars in those links :D ) don't have a flame top like the girl's guitar in the pic.

It looks like it's the guitar in Noteboat's link to me. It might be an older model because the finish and inlays are different. The neck pickup is a.....has a cover........what's the word when they aren't open coil? I'm not sure though, I don't know much about this. Here is a bigger pic from a better angle:

And Mike, I don't think I need to change my avatar now. I need to change my list of things I didn't want to know. lol

Terminator is correct, it's not a DT200.

It's a DT400CS, aka "Destroyer II", circa 1982:
