Hey guys & girls,
Im new to jemsite so I'm not sure if I've posted this in the right spot if so can the mods please shift it.
Anyway i thought I'd share my new guitar. It's been in the works for some time and now that she's arrived I've fallen in love
She was broken in on stage friday night and held up really well.
The body was made by Ernie Taylor,
i really cant say enough good things about this guy...
* Ibanez RG2550 neck (5pc maple/rosewood)
* ET guitars custom zebrawood/mahogany replacement RG body
* Fernandes FSK401 sustainer system
* Seymour Duncan blackouts AHB-1B & AHS-1N
* Dunlop flushmount straploks
* Edge Pro Bridge
* Clear cavity covers (with slots over trem cavity for access to T-no & claw screws)
I had input every step of the way and we designed this from the ground up. The mahogany is dyed to match the lines in the zebra. Tonally it sounds huge, thunderous lows and balanced mids & highs with incredible clarity. I have it in drop Bb for my new band and its djenty as hell. The neck feels like butter and has a nice flame figure in the middle maple fillet. It is definately on the heavy side, weighs in at 5.2 kilos even with the huge control cavity. The zebra has alot to do with this, it is an extremely dense wood which probably has alot to do with the clarity and depth of this guitar's tone. The tonewoods just seem to complement each other so well, I really couldn't be happier. I can't thank Ernie enough for realising my dream, he I just such a top bloke and even shouted me a free chinese dinner
