J-Custom Porn inside

Yes! After looking for a piezo equipped guitar i finally found this one...surpise-surprise! A J-C SPB2
Got it for a ridicolous price...probably the customer didn't have an idea of what he had in the hands!

Short with words...here we go with some pics i took today!

Congrats, that's an excellent score. A Piezo equipped J-Custom is a rare bird.

Re: J-Custom Porn inside

That's a beautiful J Custom. Your initial reaction to it? Playability? Sound? Build Quality? I'd be very interested to hear your opinion on it. Thanks!!!

Wonderful!

I always feel attracted to threads with the word "porn" in its title.

Playability is very good even if the neck is slightly thicker than any other ibanez neck I ever tried. Feels thicker than my Ak's neck even if from the specs it should be 0.5mm slimmer, probably a matter of shape. Didn't took time to get used to, but still strange...The fretboard feels very smooth. Even if the frets are not in the best conditions (obviously second hand) I managed to have a quite low action. She has an overall "classic" feel.
The sound is very nice and versatile, I think you all know well Tone Zone-Blue Velvet-Air Norton combination, cool lead sounds and wonderful cleans. Very warm and smooth on the neck, the right amount of sharpness on the bridge but yet full-sounding. I found the overall P.U. sound to be something in between my Jem777dy and my Uv777pbk.
The piezo sound blowed me away! Fantastic through a P.A.or an acoustic amp. Very natural. If I could only find a flaw is the lack of an EQ, but you can have the sound you want with the mixer or amp eq.
Built quality is very good, couldn't find something wrong even if the fret end should be rounder on a j-custom as you can see in the pics. The woods are very good looking, the best looking neck i saw on an Ibanez, the body has a very particular finish, at a first eye not fleshy, gorgeous when hitted by light, not sure how to say it, some like a prismatic grain.

My overall sentence is a very nice sounding-playing guitar, in line with the best prestige models I played, slightly different from quite all the other Ibanez in feel.

If you have more to ask, then ask!

Thanks for all the other comments
