Re: My new baby!!

The flash really lightens the blue!! Pics don't come close to doing her justice!

Well,i've wanted one of these for years.Decided "what the hell" Couple of weeks ago i tried one up London,but they wouldn't come down to a price i was willing to pay,and they couldn't find the trem arm!!!!.My local guitar shop has had one for a while but it has been dinged in the shop,with a noticable scratch near the trem,so i didn't want that,even at a cheaper price!I'm not a fan of the 'bay and it's horror stories,so i asked my shop if they could order one.The rest is history Picked her up this afternoon.
I couldn't picture the first opening coz i had to check her in the shop.She was sealed in proper Ibanez boxing so i know they didn't take her out.She truly is a virgin I am her first and ONLY love Opening the Team J Craft case was a pleasure i've seen people here enjoy,and that very first time was magical.It was an awesome moment.I now know what this awful factory set up is you all refer to though Others i've played must have been tweaked coz i HAVE to drop the action an inch or three I could've parked my car under there!!!!!!!!!! Her serial number starts F06,thats cool!! I know people will say being new the trem sucks blah blah,but for a man of my mediocre ability its more than good enough.I am so happy to add her to my small Ibanez family,and i was just as excited at the thought of telling you guys/girls.
New guitar days ROCK

Re: My new baby!!

Thanks guys. It's hard to explain to non-guitar people why you want another guitar,they don't realise how two different guitars even from the same company can feel TOTALLY different And sound completely different!!

I luckily don't have GAS TOO bad All i'd really want to add is an FP and a DY,but as i got a jem i'm not desparate........yet

Like i said,i've wanted a JS and a JEM for years.Got the JEM in February, a 2000 model in MINT,untouched condition,and now i'm over the moon to get the JS too!!

Thanks for the compliments
