Completed high end Proline collection!!

Opps!!! Forgot to post a proline family shot in my NGD post...
**I know there are other high end prolines like the 1990, 2770 etc. but those are
nearly impossible to find and I have only seen the factory pics on the old Ibanez Registry***
Here they are from top left to bottom right:
P2660PL, PL2550SP, PL1880NW, PL1880WN, PL1770GP

Lol......yeah I wish my wife called it that. Got the 1770 about 12-13 yrs ago. The 1880s were purchased in the same year about 10 yrs ago (got the walnut 1880 for $229 to the door with original case ). The 2660 was purchased 2 yrs ago....(finally) and the 2550 last week.

Not bad, not bad :3.

Well, you know my feelings about these guitars . I'd like to add the 1880s and a pink 2660 to my stable. Kinda wish Ibanez did a single hum variant too...

You also need a 1990 . It was a Japan only thing - same as 1880 but with sharktooth inlays. Saw one for $700 in good nick some years ago, should've jumped on it.

maybe I'll get lucky and find one some day. Ive been wearing that 2550 out all week. Just a great guitar.I think the neck profile is thinner than the others, even the 2660. I'll get my micrometer out and check. Only thing wrong so far is that the d-sonic isn't f-spaced and there is no alignment for the high E string so I got a noticeable volume drop on that string. I'm gonna get a f-spaced d-sonic for it though, that's a nice pickup, pinch harmonics for daaaaays

Re: Completed high end Proline collection!!

Haha, nice. Though I changed the pups out in my 1770, the bridge IBZ is fairly good, particularly for heavier stuff.

There's also the PL650, a kind of Proline Jr. - basswood body, rosewood board, Super 70 in the bridge .

Nice collection ! Short time of production and great quality make them exciting !
I own a 1770 and even I don't play it often, I don't want to get rid of

In my experience , the IBZ bridge pickup in the 1770 & 1880 guitars are a little micro-phonic
when you crank the volume if running a lot of gain.
