Got my new RG3120












Finally got my first Ibanez today. Its a 2005 RG3120. I was deciding between this guitar and the older 2004 model, the RGT3020. I preferred the pickups on the 3020 and the sunburst finish was gorgeous too, but a downside was that the neck was wide and finished.

The 3120 in comparisson, had the newer Dimarzio/Ibz pickups, which were supposed to be weaker, but personally i still find them more than decent. The finish was gorgeous too, and most importantly, it played totally like butter! That was the main deciding factor for me, i didnt wanna buy a guitar which looked great but didnt feel good to me!

I bought it at a blowout sale brand new and it only cost me US$955 brand new. Im totally stoked and happy!

Re: Got my new RG3120

sweet flames and sweet price!
I bought my 3120 in 2000 for about 900 and that was a show room model!
if 955 isn't below cost their regular prices are total robbery.

Nice score, man! Tell me, do they have any other Prestige RGs they're selling at Swee Lee's 50% discount? I might head down there if anything interests me.

Looks like the fretboard is kinda dry. I would put some oil on that. Nice guitar btw.

Re: Got my new RG3120

the only small thing thats bugging me now is that SUPPOSEDLY the dimarzio/ibz pickups are not too fantastic. I have played with them through my amp and i personally think they sound good. However, i do not have a chance to play with the other dimarzios, such as the tonezone, evo, paf pro, etc. So it would be good if someone who has played with both to give me a comparisson!

thanks for the kind comments, shes a player and a looker!

Looks nice dude though I really wished they kept inlays to the side.
