NGD RG1xxv (Pink porno inside)

Ok, so I get home last night to come home to my first new ibby. I have close to 20, but never bought a new one lol. I didnt get alot of time with it so far cause I got in so late, but here is my short review so far.

First off, the thing came in set up great, just had to tune it, and the action is low with no buzz. Now the most impressive thing about this guitar is the fretwork. It seems to be better than all my others, including my 2550. The neck kinda reminds me of the 2550, however I wish it was a maple board, but maybe the other anniv models will get maple.
The pickups sound better than I expected. The ibz's dont sound like the ones that came in my 2550 originally. The bridge pu is pretty hot, and the neck is warm sounding. Produces harmonics really well. I will probably swap them out for a liquidfire/crunchlab combo and put these in a s that I am building.I will know more when I get to spend more than 30 minutes playing it thru the mesa.

The bridge I am still on the fence about, I still prefer the original edge, but this may grow on me. Just need some more time.

So, I think its a great guitar for the money. Is it a j custom? No, but it is a great bang for the buck.

Awesome guitar! I've been waiting for people on here to actually get these. Real world pics of these guitars look so much better. If the RG1550 didn't exist and wasn't going to cheap, I would be all over one of these.

Pink looks much better than I originally thought! It's awesome!

Hey Drivermod! I just got the same guitar as well! And like you, I'm in the neighborhood of owning 20 Jems, Satrianis, etc, and I was just blown away by the quality, playability, sound and fretwork on this 25th Anniversary RG. I cannot say how impressed I am by this guitar and I recommend it to anyone looking for a Japanese-quality Ibanez at a non-Japanese budget (well sorta) price. Definitely a home run by Ibanez and a keeper. Mike

Now I ask this, would you take this RG over say a RG1550M for $100 less?

Hmmm, tough one. I've played the 1550. It's true Prestige Japanese quality Ibanez for sure. I was never too keen on the color options, but I like flashy guitars, so that's not saying anything against the 1550. And we all love original Edge trems, but I was impressed with the Edge Zero 2 on the 25th... and I wanted to knock it and say that's where the design went wrong, but I really can't do that. It stays in tune perfectly. I guess, bottom line: If you've found a 1550 for $800 it's prob the better choice...but I do like the 80's vibe and quality of the new 25th....oh hell, just get both!
