Here it is! The funky Tele/Les Paul/RG/whatever. I call it FReakin' cool...
It just came yesterday, and so far I really love this guitar. The sustain is pretty amazing. I haven't weighed it,
but it feels heavier than any of my RGs (the 2550Z is the heaviest). Everything about this guitar is really comfortable.
I especially like the upper body contour. The Tight End is perfect. It's solid and smooth, which makes it really
comfortable to rest your hand on.
The neck feels incredible. I think the satin finish on this one feels better than my other guitars, and I don't
remember any of them feeling this smooth when they were new.
The stock pickups sound pretty good. I really like the switching options. These pickups sound great
in split and hum modes, clean and distorted. I think I'll actually use all 5, instead of just the 1, 2 and 5
positions on my RGs.
I wasn't expecting the binding to be cream colored. I thought it was white from all the pics I've seen. It looks great though.
The finish is VERY glassy. Much more so than my RGs. They don't fill the grain on the back side, like they do front.
That way you can actually tell it's real Swamp Ash underneath the finish.
I gotta give a shout out to the man, Rich (Ibanez Rules). You rock! There's just no reason to go anywhere else.
