NGD: 1999 IBANEZ J CUSTOM S SERIES W/PIEZO

New guitar arrived in the post a few hours ago. I believe she is the J Custom S-PB2TR. Massive thanks to Fred (Jemsite ID: Zero) for selling the guitar to me. Fred was a pleasure to deal with, guitar shipped yesterday afternoon from Italy and hits my door circa midday today in the UK (less than 24 hours).

1999 model S Series J Custom. Sappeli Mahogany body, 3pc maple neck with ebony board, trem is LoPro7 Double Edge w/ Piezo saddles, Dimarzio's are Tone Zone, Blue Velvet and Air Norton. Haven't had too much playing time on her yet but she sounds great and the piezo is pretty cool. Gonna do a bit of tinkering and make a slight adjustment or two.

Check it out:

Re: NGD: 1999 IBANEZ J CUSTOM S SERIES W/PIEZO

What can I say, s-series just kick ass :-D

You'll enjoy this one, Paul. The piezo is really addictive, it's hard to put it back in the case. If only it had a Wizard neck (I think it's an Ultra...?)

Do you know the difference between the PB1 and the PB2?

Joe, yep. I reckon Ultra neck. I used to own a couple of Prestige models (RG2820) that felt very similar. Hard to tell with these rare guitars what the difference is in spec but according to Jemsite spec PB-1 and PB-2 differences are in the fretwire and the finish maybe, everything else is identical.
