Considering to buy a discontinued Prestige model

One store in my location is having this model in brand new, unused condition :

Ibanez Prestige RG 1820x

I was thinking that if I am to buy a Prestige, I might as well buy something that is different - a model which has features that makes it unique from today's Ibanez's line of guitar. The piezo feature makes it unique I think.


Any thoughts on this model? Also, is the Double Edge Pro ok for not-so-excessive types of tremolo antics? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, especially about the piezo PU and the Double Edge Pro.

Thanks!

Re: Considering to buy a discontinued Prestige model

The double edge trems are no different from their non-piezo bretheren. They can take the same abuse....The only thing is when you tear the guitar down (for cleaning and whatnot) don't just pop the springs off the trem and yank the trem off......Now you've got wires connected to that trem!

It if can be found cheaper or close to 2550egk (it's 650$ I think) I'd go for it. Who cares if it's discontinued

Go for it! Discontinued, or not--doesn't make a difference. The Jem 777s were discontinued, but I'd still snag an LNG...

Re: Considering to buy a discontinued Prestige model

Thanks guys for the advise. I bought it and I am totally overwhelmed by is playability.

Any tips or advise on how to keep the Edge tremolo shiny? Any polishes or just plain cloth?

If it's cosmo, clean the guitar then put it in the case and never take it out. If it's black, just wipe it down after play.

Rock on!
