Re: I did it. I've betrayed Ibanez!!!
I got my Custom 22 10 years ago, and it's funny... it doesn't have a 10 top.
But the top on it absolutely blows away the 10 tops they stamp on their guitars now.
When I got it, they guys were like "Man, your top looks better that most of the 10 tops we see around here..." Maybe it was some type of error, but the top is absolutely killer.
And the pickups sound great. They are not the chrome covered ones, they are the original Dragon I's, and in my opinion these pickups sound a hell of a lot better than the Dragon II's.
As a matter of fact, I don't even think mine is bookmatched, I think it is just one solid piece of maple on top.
