Both are awesome but the sunburst one is insane.

Re: Just got my American Master - Best Ibanez ever made

Lower cutaway doesn't go to the bezel. Looks that way due to the angle of the picture, but it doesn't really. Look at the middle picture of the MA3 in the 1st row for a better angle.

The pics dont really capture the MA1 properly, its probably the more stunning of the 2 in person, but I guess its personal taste as well. Suffice to say, natural finish doesnt alway show up well when pictures are taken with a flash, it looks much better in-person.

Re: Just got my American Master - Best Ibanez ever made

Could someone that has this guitar take measures: mahogany thickness, maple top thickness, maple neck thickness from the joint to the body (judging by these photos, it's near the dimension of the maple top, if not a bit thicker)...? Also, wideness of the maple thru part on the body, at the trem area... Thanks!

Re: Just got my American Master - Best Ibanez ever made

It seems when ibanez was making the american master series they decided that they would make a guitar unlike any other and would spare no expense. Every part of this guitar is masterfully carved and is a work of art; starting from the mother of pearl and abalone combination inlays to the neck and paint of this guitar. The ones who own this guitar, do take it to the sunlight and see how the backside of the guitar looks when the light falls upon it, it is tranquil. There are multiple textures/bindings on the back and side of this guitar where no one would bother to look, except for the most discerning player. I'd go as far as to say that i feel unworthy of this guitar.
