NGD & NGNeck - 770PN, '91 VBK, PGM90th & a 350 neck swap

Hello folks,

It's been a busy few months...

I'm not a huge fan of maple necks so I swapped a 350 neck out for a 340. Same colour and, to me, looks pretty good! Am I right in thinking the green 340's were only meant for the Japanese market? I got the neck from Malaysia.



A very kind fellow drove four hours to sell me this RG770PN. Someone's added a pickguard but I like it - it's also the first and only early nineties 770 I've ever seen in real life. It's really heavy! Great to play.



A PGM90th. My first Ibanez hardtail. I'll never need another! Unbelievably light. Sounds wonderful. Player condition but flawless neck. Paul has even very briefly played this!



And in the same week I got a '91 VBK. Player condition but the neck is flawless. The pick-ups sound wild! Always thought these were cool.



I love these Ibanez guitars!

Even worse/better it was the PGM90th & the VBK in the same week!

Thanks everyone. I'm studying Paul Gilbert's rock school on ArtistWorks.com. It's great! I really want to be able to play these guitars to their full potential one day. I used to want mint models but now I find used guitars hold some sort of magic, a mojo if you will, and I can play them without freaking out about them getting a bump!

The 770 was on C'list for a few weeks and the dude wanted to do the deal in person - wouldn't ship. In the end he drove from Orlando to Miami for an extra $60. A bargain for getting hold of such a great guitar. There's something about those purple neons...!
