I've had an Epiphone LP for quite a few years that's been sitting in its hard shell case or on a stand while playing my RG's. Finally decided to sell the guitar and was offered this Ibanez EX3700TP plus cash for my Epi.

The guitar looks, plays, and sounds great. I believe these were made for a short time in the early 90's and are on par with the 550's.

- Maple Neck
- Maple Fretboard
- TRS Low Pro

It has an EX Pro neck that feels, surprisingly, like an Ibanez Jem7V. It's not as wide as the neck found on a 550. Enough talking, here's some pics. They aren't the best pics in the world, took them with my phone.










Here's a group shot of my RG's.





I'm sure some of you may know more about this model than me, so feel free to educate me.

I'd upgrade the trem to an OFR or Gotoh since the TRS series isn't too great. The guitar itself looks cool.

Re: NGD

I'm not a big trem user, so doubt I'll really need to upgrade it. From the short time I spent playing the guitar, the trem stays in tune very well.

It is! When I swapped the stock pickups for a Dimarzio Super Distortion and PAF PRO, I had a custom marble swirl pickguard and truss rod cover made. Other than the trem, which I blocked, the guitar plays pretty damn well.

As far as how it stands up against a 550 or Jem... There's not much of a comparison to a Jem. The neck on the 350 is wider, rounder, and thicker. I bought my 350 just as Ibanez 'upgraded' it, but before the price went up. If I had the option of buying a 550, I would have without even thinking. The 350 is great for what it is, but there's better.
