NGD Ibanez RG 3XXV

So i couldn't resist this 80's looking machine!

Actually my girlfriend bought it for me since i was hinting that i wanted it ;-)













So the guitars LOOKS awesome, but since the price was �600 i knew that it had to have some cheap parts.

For example the frets edges are horrible! it very sharp and can cut your hands if ur not carefull!

Next is the bodywood...it sounds thin, it feels very light, but gets compensated by the dimarzio's that are in it.

About the dimarzio's: The air norton s sounds like an air norton, only it's a single coil. very smooth but not to fat

Next is the D activator.
I was worried about this pickup, since it's based on an EMG and i don't like those.
But actually i was suprised! It didn't sound shrill and it had alot of clarity, wich i like in a bridge pup. Just had to lower it a bit because it's very powerfull!

Next is the maple neck Wizard 3. I actually really like this neck. It's smooth and easy to play. There is however a little smooch (or how do u say?) on the 22th fret.

The Edge zero 2 trem is pretty awesome! It's easy to tune and stay's in tune pretty fine. The locking nuts feel smooth to lock as well.

Overall i like this guitar! it has some minor points, but that's all in the price u pay ;-).

And it's just so hard to find a guitar with these specs!!

-Red!
-Reversed headstock!
-Dimarzio pickups!
-Maple neck!

The only guitar that comes close to this is the laguna LE 924.

Awesome project guitar...

PS: I've had several of these cheaper RGs and most of them required a fret filing indeed!

I Do have a cheaper RG that i bought for 360euro's, and the frets don't cut the way they do on this one!
