Re: FR Prestige

Steve : thanks !
I'm a RG man myself, never played a real FR before , so absolutely have no idea how it does.
I always wanted a mahogany neckthru guitar, let alone the les paul ( been there, hate it).
So I've got this guy built it for me, based on the FR model.
Why FR not RG ? simply because I want something different this time.
Tele shape, wilkinson type bridge, cover pickups, they are all new to me.

I jumped to your site and saw some pics, too... very cool.
The J Custom vine is my favourite 'standard' inlay out there currently - I quite like the Jem vine, don't get me wrong... but the J Custom one is super-nice and different and not directly associated with the Jem (even though those weren't the first to have pretty much that same vine pattern).

psychoshredder - nice custom FR...

Thanks!
The LACS looks like this (have no good photos of it)



I love the idea of a mahogany FR, maple fretboard and a trem.
A perfect dream guitar for me.

I also have this one.


And also one with 3 singlecoils.

I really, really love the FR.

Re: FR Prestige

Hi Magnus,
the green one gets along very well with the maple neck.
Ever consider to replace the pickups with a cream ones?

I agree.

No, never.
I don't like the look of cream pickups :-)
Cream pickups makes guitars look like candy, especially in colors like that.
I like candy so then I have to lick it just to try if it taste as good as it looks, and then I get electrical shocks and die :-) It has happened several times already and I only have 2 life's left of the 46 I was given by the all mighty one (in exchange for guitar lessons way back when before light was invented and earth was populated by big nasty animals that was eating JEM guitars for breakfast).

I don't like zebra pickups either (it makes me think if LP's and I don't like thinking about that because it makes me have to custom order longer straps and I can't afford it and it also stops evolution of mankind), as in the other one, but it was just to dark without it (I wish it could work with black).

Yes I know, those drugs are not good for me but they taste so good, like candy, makes me think of cream pickups. And here we go again.

:-)

LOL!
Glad you did not put green pickups on it, it will look like a green eye monster...

Re: FR Prestige

I dig cream pickups. Didn't think I'd like zebra until my Hondo arrived with them, love them now.

Re: FR Prestige

Those are nice shots of those models - they look great...
That would really be something - HH set-up, LoPro/EdgePro, FR body...
Nice recipe =]
Thanks for posting those pictures.

Re: FR Prestige

FR are my favourite shape Ibanez. I only had one 1620bk which I sold after about a year. I don't get on very well with hard tail guitars as my bends are always a little out after 20 years of playing floating trems... also I always end up with sore finger joints from having to work really hard.. the same reason I sold my js6000tr, pgm 900tr and im sure some other ibanez hard tails too...

My dream guitar would be an FR with a lo-pro... so Im very glad to see my dream guitar exists out there in the real world... one day I will get one made...

I also agree re playing RG's they feel and sound great (when you put proper pups in them) but they dont have the traditional shape that most people expect to see for the music I play... and looking right is more important than playing right for most gigs... i find if I play swirls then people dont notice the pointy shape so much...

All the best

Steve

Monsters, I don't mind them at all.
I have no desire to lick them at all.
No risk for early ending of life there :-)

Thanks man!

I actually prefer non trem FR but do need the trem for many of the jobs that I do.
Having both are perfect :-)

Same here, my favorite shape.
I love the RG (and if I could only have one of them would I take the RG) but people think they look wrong for some types of music. It is ridiculous but the way it is.

Buy my green one.
