Apex 1 is good, but I don't like the texture of the paint.

This... I'm in love. Love the paint, neck, pickups... Now if you'll excuse me, I will go and plug her in and shread.

How's the neck pickup?

It comes with a Blaze middle which I've read a lot of places doesn't sound so nice in the neck...it's a shame that Dimarzio doesn't make more 7 string singles.

Wow, how'd you get that already?! The US hasn't gotten any yet [that I know of].

First Apex everybody could like. Looks great.

Re: NGD -Apex content

Love it! One of my friends is a fellow guitar mag writer and he's trying to help me get an Ibanez endorsement (he thinks I qualify on the strength of my monthly instructional column, my blog audience, the clips of my playing on DiMarzio.com, etc. I hope so!). If it happens, the first thing I would get would be the APEX100.

There's no denying it,that's killer!
I'd take that over the current UV's any day,and it's the best thing related to KoRn in 15 year's!

Re: NGD -Apex content

Thanks guys. It plays great. The sound is just KoRn It's werry light, and the neck is great. Every detail is perfect. No complains at all. Even the set up was allmost perfect straight from the factory.

It's so cool that it doesen't scream "hey, look at me! I'm a signature model!" I will eat my hat, if this doesen't sell like hell.

I'd disagree with that. I always thought the blaze middle was a fairly boring pickup, I'm more into traditional types for single coils (alnico etc) but really liked it in the neck when I installed one as an experiment.

Your right, I was getting the Blaze mixed up with the Jem single, which I believe Dimarzio says should be middle only...
