Re: My new Ibanez Premium RG950QM
I had one of these a few months back and while it looked very nice, I was not all that impressed with the fretwork on it. The rounded edges are nice but I found the neck moved an awful lot compared to my other Ibbys and they did a horrible job of levelling the frets. I changed out the pickups and it sounded much better. The bridge worked just fine on it. I'm kind of turned off of any of the Premium stuff after the Premium Green Dot nightmare that I received and had to send back. To replace the Green Dot, Ibanez offered me something from their stock at the distributor and I got a very deep discount a brand new Prestige 2627ZE. It wasn't hard to see why one would be paying much more for this guitar. Far and away a much more well-built instrument with a good setup and nice attention to detail.
