I joined Jemsite this Summer, trying to understand which model was Ibanez (RGR570 IPT - 1997 - On 1998 Catalogue).
I had a lot of guitars in this months: BC Rich Kerry King , Epiphone V with EMG, Kramer SM-1…
But my heart belongs to my Ibanez
Recently, I decided to buy my first seven strings. Honestly, the first brand I thought was Schecter. Great sounding guitars with awesome features, but their neck are too fatty for me (I tried a Jeff Loomis FR Signature Model).
I decided to buy an Ibanez, again. Tuesday my Ibanez RG 1527 BP will be mine!
I found a good offer: 350€. Awesome condition (no one scratch etc…) with hard case.
It is a 2003 model, the first year.
I've some question:
What about V8 pickup? I've a V7 on my RGR 570 and it is a good pickup for soloing, but I never tried a V8. Crunch Lab could be a good replace?
Edge-Pro 7 Tremolo: What about that? Is it a good tremolo?
Any tips for that guitar? Does it sound good?
