NGD: Ibanez Petrucci P2!


Warning: Hold on to your loafers! Gaudy 90's pastel graphics below!

I had the opportunity to purchase one of my holy grails last week. it was a tough financial choice sine I had to dip into my savings a little, but overall it was a great deal so I had to go for it. I snagged a somewhat rare and very collectable Ibanez JPM 100 P2 John Petrucci signature model. It is in impeccable condition. Barely any play wear at all, and zero fretwear.

I am not into the thin neck, shredder, trem thing much anymore. I have grown to love huge necks and stop tails, but this was something I have always wanted.

After taking it out of its case for the first time, I realized I had to do a lot of setup work to do. The action was pretty horrendous. The neck had a HUGE shim in it that was wayyy to big. It was also in the middle of the neck pocket so there was a large visible gap in between the neck and the neck pocket. So while I was putting on my usual D'addario 10's that I use on my 25.5 scae fiddles, I took out the shim and re attached the neck. After stringing it up and tuning it and adjusting the truss, I realized it did need a shim, but one of half the size. I dropped in a thinner shim, tuned it back up and bam, it plays great! I'm not really into the Ibanez thing like I used to be, but this one is really special. It is going nowhere! I have wanted one ever since I first saw one.

Here are a few pics:









I am going to be shooting a quick review and comparison with my Ernie Ball John Petrucci model. So I'll post that once I upload it.

Grats. These have always been one of my favorites as well. Wish they had released a 7-string model.

Congrats. Been gassing for one of those. Looks to be in really nice condition too. Should always have at least 1 good Ibanez in the arsenal.

The design is loosely based on Pablo Picasso during his surrealism period (about 1920-30's, cant remember for sure). I dont mean to be a dick....but that guitar is far from gaudy!!!!

Outstanding guitar.

Hey, it looks like that guitar went to the best possible home it could have.

I've long admired the P2, but never really played it one.

Glad you are happy!

Aside from the JPM 90th, that's the second JPM I like.

Congrats!

Congrats Cam!!! I'll echo the above......... The P2 and the 90th are BY FAR my favorite JPM's..........I'd take them over just about any jem every time.
