NEW GUITAR!!!!!!!! - RG 3120

I finally got my new guitar. I had been looking for one for quite awhile. I had gone through all the choses, Jackson, Ernie Ball, Tom Anderson (used of course), and then settled on Ibanez. I also own an RG 570 which is the guitar that is being replaced as my main player. This RG 3120 was had at a steal for about $880 bucks plus tax and UV1000 case. The guitar is a 2000 model but brand new. I guess noone wanted to buy it. *There is quite a bit of wear due to the time it had been there but I cleaned everything just like Rich shows you on his website and it is looking much better. Now I have to change the strings because the ones on there are two years old! So I am very excited about owning it and it sounds awesome. The direct mounted pickups and mahogany body really add alot to the sound. So just wanted to let everyone know about the exciting news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sweet - what color? I played one last week at a GC in Rochester and they wanted $1119 w/out case, so $880 with is a steal I think. Very solid guitar (especially after playing basswood for a while!)

Nice buy.

Congrats on the 3120! That's a pretty good deal, too!

To me, the 3120 is the best guitar Ibanez makes for the money. I love 'em so much, I've got 2--a DR and a TW (and I'd probably have a third if there were any more colors out there!). Everything about 'em is killer--the look, the tones, the smooth neck, the solid feel...

Enjoy!

Wasn't the DR just added to the lineup in 2001?

There's a Vintage Violin colour available in Europe! *(it's an animated gif below, wait for it to change to the VV colour ).

Anyways, congrats on the guitar! arty:

Excellent choice of guitar.
I owe an Ibanez RG 3120LTW and the guitar is excellent!

Maybe I ma wrong on how old it is. But the strings had black spots due to the age and sure was not a 2002 model. It had been there a loooooooooooooooooooooong time.

There was also a transparent black run of about 12 that was sent to the Texas GC's. Good luck findin one of them.
It's possible that this DR was made in 2000. They were sending these to Europe as RG 3220's in 2000.

Doink...just for trivia's sake, I saw one of those black ones here in Dallas a couple years ago, and then it turned up used with a few dings a few weeks back. *I bought a DR quilt 3220 back then.

NEW GUITAR!!!!!!!!

Well looks like I'm next to join the RG3120 crowd - a fellow Jemsiter is going to let me in on his for $850. It's the TW. I'm going to leave early Saturday AM and drive 6 hours to pick it up - bring my dog and listen to the set list all the way down.

Here's the pre-story:

Last week driving out to Buffalo, call my work partner to discuss some business and he tells me we DID get a bonus! I make my calls, eat at 5 and hit the GC where I've been playing the TW. I go in and see they also now have a DR! Play it for 1/2 hour, deal with the guy to include a UV1000, strings & strap and WHAM! I'm outta there with a DR. Now I'm spending the next 2 days out there trying to figure out what I'm gonna tell the wife. I call her before an appointment Friday AM and just break it to her "honey, I'm gonna say the four words you hate to hear - I bought a gui...." she starts crying (wow, yelling I expect, but crying?!) so I back out and tell her I'll take it back, calm down, whatever.

Took it back - didn't like the DR as well as the TW anyway, but it was still hard to do.

Now somehow, I talk her into letting me get this one - slightly used as long as I promise NO MORE GUITARS!

I didn't have the heart to tell her there's ALWAYS more guitars *

Can't wait.

*

Six hours down & six back - worth every mile!

A few questions:

- I saw the pup specs as 2 PAF Pros - isn't that a Tone-Zone I see in the bridge?

- Is it a flamed maple top or something else?

Anyone, anyone, Beuhler?

Very solid guitar, plays like a dream.

Makes me curious what the RGT's feel like!
