If you've seen one BFP pic you've seen them all...

But there's no substitute for seeing one in person! Acquired from a Jemsite forum member in Italy, this beauty just arrived in very respectable condition and for a fair price. Has a few very small edge chips but nothing large and nothing on the front or back. Clean fretboard too, just the faintest touch of dirt.

Good enough condition to fully appreciate and admire but no so good that I'm afraid to play it hard. It's my first maple fretboard and I must say that I like the sound quite a bit. Nice growl when played dirty and the clean sound is wonderful.

I now have both Ibanez Floral Patterns, they are the best sounding, best looking and most fun guitars I have ever owned. I wonder which Ibanez model will be the next to hook me.

Re: If you've seen one BFP you've seen them all...

congratz on your new BFP they're cool indeed, I got one myself, paf pros are nice but when I dismantle those pickups it's got the "Dimarzio pickups, made in the usa and V1 at the bottom" I've noticed the newer paf pro to have the dp151 imprinted on there. Is it the same? But the V1 seems to sound better than those printed dp151

I'm not sure about the pickup thing, I kind of like Paf Pro's too but am actually going to replace them with an Air Norton/Tone Zone combo soon just to beef it up just a little bit. I'll check the old ones out once they get pulled.

One can never see too many BFP pics. Still reminds me of Alice in Wonderland. I became addicted to the maple almost immediately. It gets the most play time of any of my Jems.

Congrats on the beaut

Man congrats on the BFP!

One of my faves out of all the jems. The condition of your's is pretty good as well. That board is looking pretty clean man.

I've still got major gas for one!
