Re: EGEN

I have to say no. I really like sabers, but I think this one is just too mush. The color is good, but not transparent on flamed maple AND with gold hardware (which I don't like anyway). The 'Kung Fu grip' (or whatever it's called) is plain useless. It's not like you can't grip the upper horn without it.

His custom plain 24-fret Saber he used before this one is pretty ok actually.

Re: EGEN

I like the color w/ the flame and I love 24 fret S's but I don't like the grip, the inlay and the gold. I might like the gold if they excluded the pickup covers and strap locks or made the hardware like partially black or cosmo, partially gold.

I like them.

Re: EGEN

I love everything about the guitar apart from the grip and the trem. The trem is personal preference but the grip is like the JEM's handle, but with a punchline doesn't quite deliver probably because it's been done before.

Everything else the inlays, the pickups, and especially the truly ingenious "player's" mods like the front pickup ring, the rear lower cutaway, 24 fret S body - great.

Sorry, Herman it's a great guitar, but just not the one for me

Re: EGEN

The cutaway extension is a great idea. I used that on my project strat to great effect. I agree the transparent purple on a flame doesn't work.

Re: EGEN

ho hum, another average Ibanez. Not that it's not a nice guitar. Just seems a bit redundant, like most Ibanez's. Ibanez must have more model numbers than any other guitar.

+1

That's the first time I've ever done that. I feel so cheap.

I like it and the array of features, but I can't afford it.

Re: EGEN

It's a beautiful guitar. Unfortunately its an S. Not my bag. The grip can go too.
