Re: Ibanez RG680 CM
ok , I got one of these, mine is pretty much the same with the picture, in deep red finish.
spec from the japanese web :
body : basswood
neck / fretboard : maple/ rosewood
pickups : quantum series
hardware : Lo-pro trem, gotoh tuning heads.
my opinion :
body somehow much lighter than any basswood RG I ever played (owned).
first I thought it was alder, but the web said different thing.
the tone is very very dry, with original quantums Pu's , it's sound like a strat, I changed the pickups with duncan JB and pearly gates, still sounds dry. sustain is OK.
the neck...here's the funny thing, I don;t know exactly what type of neck they put on. it's smaller than the wizard neck, yet thinner than wizard II, but narrower in nut, I have to say, I've got problem when playing it for the first time, it doesn't feel like a RG at all. but later on after some adaptation, i feel ok with it.
