New Member, First Prestige

Hey thought I would introduce myself after having browsed for a few days.

I picked up my first Ibanez Prestige last week. It makes me sick to know I have played guitar this long on something other than a Prestige neck!
I brought back my Ibanez S420 (not a fan of the ball-bearing based tremolo) and picked up one of the 10th Anniversary RG1421F in "Marine Blue Burst".
I really love this guitar, the neck in particular...it's so freaking thin! I must say that I am now a member of the "Prestige Owners Club", and plan to be forever!

Quick question though, if I were to replace the pickups on it, what are some that people are liking in this guitar? Also, has anyone stuck a killswitch in one of these yet? I've been considering it...

I haven't sat down and took a picture of it yet or anything, but you can see it on Ibanez's site...I am running it through a Peavey Valveking 100 half-stack, with an MXR Phase 90 and a Boss OD-20 Drive Zone. I do use the natural tube distortion for a more "classic" distorted tone.

Thanks for any help!

Contracts! I've been GASing for one of those. I have an RG1420F, that is an awesome guitar. I can't decide on pickups for it. The stock pickups are better than I expected them to be.

Great colour on that model - marvellous.

How do you find that particular bridge as far as playing comfort goes?

Re: New Member, First Prestige

I just got a second RG1420F myself! Got the black haze burst 1420F for Christmas,,,,couldn't put it down. SOld my Jackson USA SL2H a few weeks ago, and finally bought a guitar from Rich - the red flame burst 1420F. I still have stock pickups in both and may try some dimarzios, but the stock pickups are great. The neck and playability of these guitars is beyond description. I'm just a total Ibanez player now, and these RG prestiges are right on par with my Jem and PGM guitars! I, too, regret taking so long to discover Ibanez guitars, and spent my major gigging days playing guitars that were never perfectly comfortable to me.

Re: New Member, First Prestige

I love reading positive threads about others' great experiences with their guitars. I felt the same way I played one of these necks. Rock on!

Peace

Congrats.. I also felt that way when I got mine a few weeks ago. My other guitars have been relegated to cowboy chord duty because there really is no comparison to these necks.

Re: New Member, First Prestige

I guess I lucked out that my first guitar was an RG back in 1989........ after that every other guitar had me wondering "what's wrong with this thing??" LMAO!!!!
