What is this, I don't even...

Now that looks absolutely fantastic. I've never seen this kind of a rg. Holy cow, you've just awoken my gas.


....japan only, sigh...

Re: NGD: RG2560zex Sunburst Prestige

Wow--looks amazing!
Are you going to dump some DiMarzios in?
I'd throw a lipstick pickup in the neck--just for something different.
Couple it with a Fast Track middle and a Gravity Storm bridge for crazy versatility.
On a related note--how does that amp sound?
Been considering one, but have a few low-watt heads already. Just curious how the onboard TS circuit sounds.

Re: NGD: RG2560zex Sunburst Prestige

Thanks for all the comments. Alaska- I'm actually pretty happy with the pickups, there's a lot of versatility in the guitar already. The only thing I may change out is the neck to a mini-humbucker type, not sure what yet. Just not quite enough punch in it at the moment.
And the amp's great. Phenomenal clean tone for such a cheap price. Only thing is the TS circuit doesn't cover much gain (like an unmodded 808 I suppose), so you'll need to run pedals for more dirt. But for a good crunch sound it's fantastic. Boost is useful too, just the right amount for a little pep in your solos over the band.

Re: NGD: RG2560zex Sunburst Prestige

That's a very nice guitar, and you have probably found it to honestly be a do-everything guitar with HsH lineup and likely split coil humbuckers on 2 and 4 position as most Ibbys are. With your amp setup, you can of course do rock but humbucker in neck lends well to jazz, too.

That's cool too that you got a Japan/Asia only release from a company that ships worldwide. What other European or Japanese Ibanez online dealers also ship worldwide? If it's the right guitar, I don't mind ditching US online dealer with free shipping in order to get a perfect guitar, like rare finish/features RG or S, or a cool 12 string Artcore/AK-80 jazz Artcore/AMF flat top Artcore, none of which are available in US, yet, or anymore.

Re: NGD: RG2560zex Sunburst Prestige

Blazer, not sure about shipping worldwide, the story with this one is that a few shops over in the UK where I live have imported this model- so it was probably an option from the dealer rather than the shop I got it from actively seeking it out. With that in mind one of those places may ship it- try doing a uk only Google search for it.
Screamndemon the head is brill. Can't believe they aren't more popular than they are.

As an owner of a TV750, I was wondering whether there is any pick up that I can put in instead of the lipstick pickup. I am looking for something with a lot higher output. It's an experiment for a year or so. You know, just to see what the TV750 can do. Thanks for reading this. It's been a long time since anybody discussed this topic, it seems.

I would go after one, but I have my 560

I do love that sunburst guitar though. If I was gonna go total Andy Timmons look, I'd get this and throw his pups in it
