NGD: Another guitar that thinks it's an Ibanez

Here's my new Bunker Treker Custom, built by Dave Bunker who also did the last wave of Ibanez USA customs. Alder body with quilted maple top, beautiful maple neck, Floyd Rose, Schaller tuners, Duncan pickups (which are coming out for some creme DiMarzio's) and the "tension free neck" that was the big deal of the Ibanez USRG 10 - 30 series. Unlock the neck, pull out from the headstock, make your adjustments (or whack someone with the bar), re-insert, lock it up... no muss, no fuss. Hell, this is basically a re-do of the USRG30 which is a fantastic guitar.

No, the tension free is unique since you can pop the headstock off to adjust the bar. It's kinda fat, really.

I like how the fret board matches the body. Very classy.

Forgot to take some new pics after I got it in. Here we go....









Alder with maple top is always a nice combo.

Re: NGD: Another guitar that thinks it's an Ibanez

Sorry for sounding like a noob, but can someone explain the whole 'tension-free" thing?

Re: NGD: Another guitar that thinks it's an Ibanez

Absolutely stunning guitar - I love it!!! Congrats on your new acquisition!

I checked out the Bunker website and I was surprised at how reasonable the pricing is. It looks fantastic but how does it play and sound?
