a lot of stuff sets it apart.
* Cosmetically, the paint job is quite unusual. The big JP inlays are a bit different. The scoop on the lower bout is unusual also.
* In terms of play- it's not that unusual. It plays like any other EB/MM. Which means- if you like EB/MMs, then you'll like it. It has the trademark eeny-weeny tiny neck with the 3x3 tuner setup. It's got a pretty standard non-locking trem and DiMarzio pickups. So, if the question is What sets it apart from other EB/MM guitars, the answer is, the pickups and cosmetics. If the question is What sets it apart from Ibanez guitars, the answer is, cosmetics, and the neck profile.
The only warning I issue is that anyone with really big hands (such as myself) may experience cramps while playing on that tiny neck.
