Got my custom up at IbanezRegister

Hi all,

I've put my custom up here at IbanezRegister.com along with the spec sheet I sent off for all to have a look at along with a little bit of background info.

Hope it makes interesting reading!

Re: Got my custom up at IbanezRegister

i like that axe, james. i love me some neck throughs...i got an rgt3120 my self with the air norton/tone zone rig. question for you is: how does it sound with the AN/TZ in ash? been thinking of getting an ash body made for an rg520 and was going to go with duncan stag mag and custom for it. almost all of my ibanez's have AN/TZ's in them, tho. most of my rg's anyway. the only one that doesn't is my rg770dx. it has stock pickups except for a super3 in the bridge. but having a strat type wood for your RG, which is really bright and spanky, how does it couple with those dimarzios?

It sounds excellent! I had a TZ in a mahogony neckthrough and it just sounded dull and gritty compared to the swamp ash (there is a difference, so called "swamp ash" is more porous and allegedly has a more even frequency response) which sounds smooth across all the frequencies. Although I do have to point out that I did have a maple top put on it to brighten it up further.

basically the guitar really sings, the low end isn't muddy and is cristal clear, and the top end soars, and there's no real drop out in between.

I'd say go for it, and also I think the thicker body may have had some effect as well, it's not a light guitar, but it came out waaaaay better than i anticipated!

So yeah, the Tone Zone in ash sounds cool, although I keep thinking of putting in a steve's special for some reason to see what it does!

Air Norton wise, well, I haven't used the neck pup too much to be honest, but it is still cool. I've just never really found that rich thick sound that's quite EMG like in a passive yet, which is what I am looking for for a neck pup. Still, it's cool, and with the volume rolled down will give excellent definition even through a high gain amp, so I'd definately recommend this pairing as well, but to be honest I'd really want to play around with a few different ones before I'd say for definate as one pickup tried does not a valid opinion make

Re: Got my custom up at IbanezRegister

I forgot to add, the guitar itsself is really quit loud acoustially as well, so that may also be having an effect on what's coming through the pups

Wow now that's what I would have done if I could have my own custom made by Ibanez. I like the very original inlay, very unique. nice man!
