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.
