I'm sick!!

So, I went to my doctor for some tests............He spent some time asking a lot of questions, poked and prodded, then gave me a diagnosis.........

Turns out I'm clinically politically depressed, I guess this afflicts about half the US population every four years....... He said there's no known cure, but I disagree............ I decided to self medicate!!!!!!!!!

My drug of choice..............

IBANEZ PHARMACEUTICALS!!!!

My first dose arrived in the mail today.................



Yes, this is Sachmo72's '98 RG550 DY. This thing is so close to mint that you'd never believe it's almost 15 years old!!!!

These are Sachmo's pics, I'll post some of my own when I get a chance to over the weekend. Til then, I'll be playing on my first ever maple fretboard......what a dream!!!!!

Re: I'm sick!!

BTW...the part about the doctor and me being ill is a bunch of BS.....just a creative way to do an NGD!!!!

Although there are a few people that accuse me of being "Ill".........I have no idea why.....

Re: I'm sick!!

Oh, and at least with ObamaCare you can get treatment for the depression!

Maybe that'll cover the costs for the Ibanez "medication"

Re: I'm sick!!

I went without maple for a long period too, until 2007 with my 20th Ann RG550. Realised how much I loved it again then. And now finally with my strat project I'll finally have a second maple board. Oh check out my build thread. There's another tease of my bridge. Cannot wait to see the whole thing!

I backed off pulling the trigger on a few maple boarded RG's over the years. They've either been too expensive, or just a bad deal to begin with. This one DEFINITELY made the wait worth it!!!

Dude, I already commented on your new "Strat-Ti". What a bad-ass that is.......The Pro-Mod has nothing on it..........ZERO!!!

Re: I'm sick!!

Congrats. Fair warning though, with a board that clean, a fair amount of play time and you'll start wearing through the clear on the board. It will cause cloudy spots, especially in the lower frets from chords. To most people it's probably not a big deal. For me, I can deal with a few chips and dings but the dark spots drove me nuts. The maple is noticably brighter to the ears than the rosewood too. See how it goes for you. I'm no longer a fan of the maple board on anything. Much prefer ebony or a dark rosewood. Anyway, PLAY IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT!

Try not to OD, Ibanez pharmaceuticals has some pretty potent stuff!

Quick jab: if you were on Obamacare you'd be on a list waiting to get this.

Re: I'm sick!!

We've had free universal health care for decades now, It's fantastic. When we had our kids the hospital system was amazing, and follow up services.

Maybe I should see if Ibanez guitars is a treatment for something too. That way I could get some more for nothing.

Re: I'm sick!!

ouw..it's a maple board loving thing thread?.. LOL....count me in.

I never a big fan of maple board, I don't like it because of its brightness.
but for 'the look'.... on some finish / color, it just does very well with maple board.

and yes.. when it's get dirty... it drives me nuts too!!
