Mick Thomson Siggie

im lookin for a new guitar yous guys
i hav tha ill 20th aniversery yellow rg which is awesome nd my only guit
that guitar got me hooked on rgs they are freeeegin amazing

im lookin for a guitar with a fixed bridge because i really want to mess with different tunings for example mick thomsons c sharp with a drop b but i can't do it on my yellow without messing up the floating trem
nd im def into heavy **** nd wuld like this beauty

the only doubt i have in this guitar
wil there being no fret markers drive me nuts?
if it deosnt have the dots on the top of the neck id prolly sharpie in little dots anyway but culd the absense of fret markers drive a man to insanity?

Re: Mick Thomson Siggie

I went from a strat with dots, to a viper with flags, to an S2170 with only a 12th fret inlay. It won't bug you much, and if it does you still have side markers. On board inlays are generally just for decoration.

THe best way to check it out though ,is go and play a few guitars with no inlays or only 12th fret inlays. YOu'll see if you find it wierd or not and most guitar shops have at least a couple. Personally, I think if you're a reasonably confident player its jsut an adjustment rather than a hindrance.

Re: Mick Thomson Siggie

There are plenty of fixed bridge/mahogany choices in the Ibanez range of varied price range,go to the website and have a look ibanez.com. If you are truly into the MTM but want dots simply buy some stick on dots for guitars off the bay etc.Just place them where they will not be constantly rubbed over with string bends,for example top of fret board close to fret wire(like older j-customs/pettrucci's).I got some glow in the dark ones cheap last year.

Re: Mick Thomson Siggie

I spent a few hours chugging away on a Schecter yesterday (with Seymour Duncan Blackouts, which are incredible pickups). Half an hour went by before I realised there was only 1 inlay on the fretboard, at the 12th fret. The side dots on the Thompson should be more than enough to help you find your way.

By the way, you don't have to pay by the letter to post here. I'm just saying, is all...

Wow..for a second there I thought losgatosrg350dx became unbanned.

Oh, and for the record your original post said nothing about Mahogany preference, only fixed bridge, and the PGM is probably the best fixed bridge Ibanez currently in production.

It is appreciated if you could try and type your posts in a legible manner where everyone can understand it. You will get far better responses from everyone if you could at least make the effort.

Re: Mick Thomson Siggie

Well the mick thompson has the hideous "seven" written on it. And I played a PGM, and although, I love fixed bridges and Paul Gilbert, I didn't like it. So my best advice is try another company.
