Oh damn the grain on that red orange one is so damn gorgeous. Both are really. What's the trem like on the red orange one like? I've seen those but never played one.

Re: My fist Prestige guitars!

Both are absolutely stunning guitars... but that green one makes me jealous! I've always wanted a green burst like that, almost bought an SZ720 with similar finish once. Love my 540S, old vintage one in Lipstick Red. Easily my best playing guitar and sounds great with original pickups too. Nice guitars!!

I loved the green one.

Actually it looks a lot like Kiko Loureiro model.

I actually dont use it. I dont even have the bar and it costs around $40 to replace... not really something I wanna spend money on if I'm not gonna use it... HOWEVER... I do wanna try it out too!

Gorgeous guitars!! Tell me, what are your thoughts on the 6521? I’ve wanted one BAD for a while. My wife told me it’s too close to zombie green for me. 😂

I almost bought one in 2019 but ended up with a RG652AHM NGB instead. My first prestige and ibanez guitar actually

I almost bought an RG3210 a few years ago, but went for an RG2550Z-GK instead.

The RG3210 had a Twilight Blue flamed maple top (possibly my favourite Prestige RG finish ever), with only a couple of very minor dings on the back edges, for a very reasonable price. Unfortunately, the owner had stuck abalone-effect stickers on the fretboard that weren't flush (would be horrible to bend across), looked a bit tacky (IMO) and almost certainly would have damaged the rosewood surface if removed.

Although I have no regrets about getting the RG2550Z-GK (it's currently my go-to guitar, ahead of my RG652FX and S2170SE, and I even got a second one in Galaxy White), every time I see a Twilight Blue RG3120 I want it

Re: My fist Prestige guitars!

Both very nice!

I haven't seen the S4170AB before. I love the top - partly because it's a bit more unique than flamed/quilted maple. Abalone binding doesn't normally do much for me, but it really suits this guitar. My S2170SE has the same fretboard inlay, which I find beautiful in a very understated way ('tree of life' vine inlays would probably look over-the-top alongside the binding on your S4170AB)

If by "bar" you mean the tremolo arm, I would highly recommend investing in one. I'm not sure where you got the $40 price from, but Rich from 'Ibanez Rules' (a regular poster on here) is selling them for $25 + shipping (IBANEZ RULES!! - PARTS FOR SALE). If you keep an eye open on eBay etc. you might find a second-hand one slightly cheaper.
The ZR tremolo has a different (but not worse) feel to an Edge / Floyd Rose. Not as suited to crazy dive bombs, but really smooth and stays in tune extremely well.
