That is sweeeeeeeet!!! I love the Prestige models - I have 3 of them now and they are the nicest playing Ibanez guitars that I've ever tried - better than my Jem. Is that a pearloid guard? it looks like it but it's hard to tell with the lighting in the photo. Also nice that model came with the Dimarzio TZ/TV/AN pups. great guitar - congrats!!! =)

You know what I love seeing? You saying so many good things about prestiges with EZ It makes me feel safe having 2 of them and if I ever falter on my trust of the prestige, you always make me feel better

to the OP:

Happy NGD Hope that baby gets a LOT of playing time

It's like an 'everyday' version of the 10th Anniversary JEM. Nice score and HNGD

Re: NGD 2014 Ibanez RG3550ZDX

I haven't tried taking the stop bar off yet, I'd put a backbox in one of my earlier ibanez' so I was used to a bit of strength to pull up. I might give it a try today. I can still get flutter without removing the stop bar, it's obviously not as pronounced though

Hi Leeroy, congrats on your new guitar... this one is a keeper If you are used to the backbox there will be not much of a diference. I prefer the feeling of a floating trem.

Hey man I feel so awesome hearing you give props to the Prestige line like this, thank you! I mean they are simply the best I have two of them now, one being a 7 string mean and beautiful machine
Better than your JEM?? Wow!

Re: NGD 2014 Ibanez RG3550ZDX

Thank you very much Rolan The tone itself is perfect, iīm used to superdistortions and paf proīs but this combo is great, sonic monster. I play it unplugged alot for several reasons and it’s loud with long sustain, iīm not shure if itīs the titanium or the bridge constrution that helps but itīs impressive. Thereīs nothing to be upgraded, only wish that it came with an ebony fingerboad as always
