got an sz320 on the way... im excited

i usually dont buy sight unseen but AMS has a good price on them and I have really wanted another guitar, specifically a fixed bridge, I almost considered a hardtail RG but I think this will be a nice complement

im happy, got a good trem guitar, a good acoustic, a good bass and now a good fixed bridge, its all the basics covered

also added a digitech rp 250 on the order so now I can actually have some different sounds to play with and the USB capabilites to start playing with some home recording, im so excited

Re: got an sz320 on the way... im excited

the sz's are among the best budget axes on the planet. before the sz series came out in 2003, i was going to get a schecter. i saw the info on HC.com and thought they were going to be mad expensive, but i had to have one. saw the msrp, and freaked! it was less than the msrp of my sc420. within 6 months, i had one. dropped an alnico2 and jb in it and love it. i personally have an sz520 in GAB and have a coil tap for the neck hum to give me a good single coil tone. i made it v/t/t instead of the v/v/t. it is so fun to play and sounds gorgeous. my only gripe...and you won't have it, is that the fret markers are nonexistant on that guitar. the flaming squid is the only indicator.

Cool, I have an SZ320 on order also, one of the new white ones. I plan on putting Duncan's in it at some stage, a JB and a Jazz. Just for something different really as I usually go down the DiMarzio route, but I have been getting a little tired of them recently. They are meant to be great little guitars for the money.

Re: got an sz320 on the way... im excited

Its a slideshow, take a moment, click on the picture and have a look please! Thanks!


shes here!








Ill keep this short and simple, I went overboard with my posting on Ibanez forum

Expected it Thursday, props to AMS and FedEx for the expident shipment. I normally dont buy sight unseen like this, but... this deal was too good to pass on, I typically hate the Warehouse seller route. With that said Im very impressed with what I bought!

With the money I saved on passing on the white one, I could afford the Digitech, Im very impressed with it so far, considering what I had options wise before its a whole new world, its good enough for me, thats it, plain and simple, so please dont knock it and say it sucks blah blah blah, please dont. A bonus I wasnt even expecting, AMS threw in a free pedal gig bag, how cool, I didnt even know it was included.

Guitar was simply good to go out of the box, Im crazy amazed how well its setup, the D and G strings obviously had to be tuned, they get knocked by the box but the others were in tune, a few seconds and Im in tune, wow and it sustains, its well constructed, over all appearance is nice, the 320 is the utilitarian model of these SZs the others are really all cosmetics though, at thier core they are all constructed the same, Im really diggin the burst, its nicer than I expected. All black would have been boring and very utilitarian, at least this is a little classy, its very classic looking if you ask me. Thats about it, if you see my Ibanez forum posting this is tame by comparison!

I have to note, this is my first NIB purchase, I usually opt for the used route and I have never had a guitar with hang tags or blank warranty cards, kind of scary honestly, I get to cut my new guitar cherry teeth on this one hehe

Cheers all
Jeremy

no AMS, and I love white on a guitar, seriously I do but.... for the cash difference this allowed me a Digitech pedal, a better deal all around for me

otherwise I would have opted for the white

I'm liking these guitars a lot. That burst one with the plain top and binding is nice. I have not seen that one before.
