Ibanez USCG Angels Depart guitar

Hi everyone!

I just won off eBay an Ibanez USCG Angels Depart guitar, it should arrive here tomorrow. I paid $960.00, which I probably overpaid, but I loved the guitar and had to have it! I don't know too much about this guitar, other than the description in the auction, it has Dimarzio Tone Zone and Fred pickups, and a Jem 7VWH neck (not the origianl neck obviously) but is there any way to tell what year it was made? The original neck is not on it, it has a Jem 7VWH neck, so I didn't know if there was another way to tell. Also, is this a Dan Lawrence graphic?

Thanks!

Thanks Wilch! I'm not sure where they got the neck, but that's probably the main reason I felt comfortable paying a little more. I'm not sure what this guitar originally went for.

That would be the only graphics guitar I'd ever own. I love that one.

Congrats, bro...I never cared for the graphics models myself, but with the vine board it looks cool. Most important is that you dig it! Hope it arrives OK.

I looked at it a couple times on evilBay. Pretty cool looking. I don't know that I would've paid $960, but then again, I'm a cheap bastard. Congrats on a nice piece of art.

Thanks! I know, $960.00 was a little steep, I didn't expect it to get that high, but I don't see these that often for sale especially with the Jem neck, so I figured what the hell...

Glad you like the guitar!

I'm glad you're happy with the guitar! The original owner also was an Ibz dealer, I'm guessing that's how he came across the extra VWH neck. It is a Dan Lawrence graphic, his signature is on the bottom horn.

I have to admit that I played around with that guitar some in the shop before it shipped out, I liked it alot, it needed a setup and I didn't have time to do that to get it playing like it should but it sounds like you've got it dialed in! That's the problem with this bizness, some of these things just scream "Take me home", but I'm afraid the wife will scream "Take it back, I want new shoes...."

Later,
Roger
