I Think Im In Love!!!!!!!!!!

I just stopped by my local Sam Ash today and I tried out the Ibanez RGA 121 Maple Top.

Heres a pic of one..........

http://www.musik-schmidt.de/osc-schm...GA-121-NTF.jpg

I played it into a Roland Cube 60 and a Peavey XXX and although the pickups were just ok. The feel and playability of this guitar were flawless! It plays perfectly!!!!
If I do get it, I will put on some locking Schaller tuners and change the pickups to probably a Dimrzio Air Norton on the neck and maybe a Tone Zone in the bridge or a D-Sonic or maybe even an Evo. I dont know but I do know that I love this guitar and It will be mine........Oh yes it will be mine........

That's not a bad guitar. I've played a few before, but I wouldn't really recommend locking tuners for that guitar.

Those are fantastic guitars.

I would love to have one myself.

Re: I Think Im In Love!!!!!!!!!!

Why? Do you enjoy turning each of the 6 tuning pegs hundreds of times everytime you change your strings? I hate that. I put Schaller locking tuners on all my guitars. Floyded or fixed they all got em! They cut the time in half and they stay in tune better that most standard tuners. Whats the draw back?

Re: I Think Im In Love!!!!!!!!!!

I always have to turn my tuning pegs when I change strings. It comes with the territory.

And I really don't see why you need to put them on a double locking Floyd. Overkill.

I've never had a problem with any of my fixed bridge guitars after they are set up.

Put them on there then, whatever floats your boat...

Re: I Think Im In Love!!!!!!!!!!

To each their own I guess........ I just like how fast I can change strings and how little I have to turn the peg and how much better they stay in tune than most other tuners.

Re: I Think Im In Love!!!!!!!!!!

I have them on my EBMM JP, and they just really don't make me too happy. I had problems with it going out of tune with light use of the whammy. So I guess I'm kinda biased in the negative direction with them.

If you've had good luck with them, that's great! Maybe you can give me some tips so I can keep my Petrucci in tune!

But I have never had any problem whatsoever with any of my stop-tail guitars. I can change the strings on my PRS in less than 5 minutes. In tune and ready to go. And it stays that way. So I figure if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

But good luck, I'm sure you'll get a guitar that you'll really love.

Re: I Think Im In Love!!!!!!!!!!

Not sure if I mentioned but I have a EB JP6 too. It helps alot to have the guitar intonated and correctly set up so if yours isnt then that would for sure help. I also dont let my strings wrap around even once. Just about 1/3 or the way.
