NGD Ibanez GRG250DXB Vivid Orange

My First Ibanez. Bought it about 2 weeks ago from Gallins Musician Pro Store over here in Australia for $400 (down from $500)
She's definitely the most beautiful thing I have ever owned.
First song I ever played on it was 'Flying in a blue dream'... well, the bits I can play anyway.

Re: NGD Ibanez GRG250DXB Vivid Orange

I'd been looking at that specific guitar for the whole time I've been playing (5 months give or take). The tremolo opens up so many more avenues of creativity, and adds a completely new dimension to playing songs for me.

So far, Ibanez have held up their reputation. It sounds great, it looks great, everything about it is amazing. Best $400 I have ever spent, haha.

My next guitar will definitely be ibanez. I am thinking of a Schecter 7 string, unless I can find a cheaper, but still good quality 7 string ibanez second hand.

Congrats on joining the Ibanez family

They dont look that great but the Iron Label 7 strings are REALLY nice. I tried out the RG, but they sounded great. I recommend the S series version though because the RG has active pickups with a kill switch (used in more so-called "modern" metal genres) so I prefer the S series Iron Labels. If you wanna wander into the Made in Japan market, forget the 7 strings and get yourself a prestige Prestige 7 strings can get expensive, so that's why I say get a 6 string if money may be an issue.

Re: NGD Ibanez GRG250DXB Vivid Orange

I probably won't buy a seven string brand new unless I can find a good deal. The only reason I need one is because our lead guitarist will be using one, and so for me (rhythm guitar) to stay in tune I'll need a seven string (apparently). I found a brand called Rees on eBay. They're probably not great quality, but for $380AUD and it has a floyd rose, I'm not too fussed. Unless I suddenly get lots of money, then I'll go Jem or Uv, haha

congratz on that beauty! that looks really cool!, but, dont go floyd in a seven strings, if a set up for a 6 takes time, on a 7 is way worse, if u go new, go for a schecter, hell, even a ltd m-17 isnt that bad, if u go used look for an rg7320(or an rgd7420), they are a really nice bang for the buck
