n00b Alert! Movin' up to an Ibby

I'm a new member here and though I've owned an Ibanez in the past, I'm still a total Ibanez noob. I figured I'd drop in, say hello and tell ya what I have on order for my NGT (new guitar day).

I've been a Jackson guy for a while but finally figured out what it was I kept missing. Missing usually = GAS pains. Or worsens them. I was missing the look and feel of my old Ibanez. It wasn't anything all that special to anyone but me. It was an all white EX1500 Korean w/maple fretboard. I wore it to the bone and sold it after many years of faithful service (and even more mods). So... I did some research, made a few phone calls and settled on what I hope is going to curb my Ibby GAS pains (for a while).

I decided on an RG1550CA w/Maple board. I have an affinity for the sound a maple board offers. I usually keep at least one around. I feel confident w/the appointments and the neck specs that this will be a keeper for me. Though I will probably ask for opinions on pickup swaps after I burn it in a bit.

A HUGE thanks in advance to Rich for taking (a friggin lot of) his time w/me to help me along. An Ibby noob couldn't ask for a better resource of info or axes, IMHO.

Guit pron to follow once it's NGT day. Thanks for having me here.

Darin - I'm in a town so small it doesn't even get a full pixel on the map when you mapquest it.... Hollidaysburg.

Howdy deciphered = Hi. I speak that language fluently. I have some south in my mouth, so to speak.

Cosmic - I see you're in my old stompin grounds.... Richmond. Unless you were born north of the James River, you should say Howdy too! HeHe! Great place. I do miss it a little.

The 1550ca has landed. Thanks again Rich. It looks much better in person. The setup is pretty spot on too!

Not really my style to push up my post count without trying to offer something of substance. But not sharing my new guit pron might send me on a post count campaign. Consider this as such..... shameless post count reply! HeHe!!

Re: n00b Alert! Movin' up to an Ibby

Thanks for the kind welcome. I thought I tried before to link to the pics but couldn't. I will try it again......................

Sorry gents. No joy. It'll have to wait. So says the Links/Image Uploader Gods....

"To be able to post links or images your post count must be 20 or greater. You currently have 8 posts.

Please remove links from your message, then you will be able to submit your post."


I'm not complaining. I completely understand the intent and willingly abide by it. There will be guit pron.... eventually....
