NGD: first J-Custom - 2005 RG8127FVV

My FIRST J-Custom NGD! Oh Yeah!

So she didn't actually arrive today. I've had it for about a week, and have been so busy playing her that I haven't had time to even give it my customary, ritualistic pre-play cleaning; muchless take pics. I was so excited to unbox and decase her that I felt like a virgin on prom night, fumbling with a bra strap.

I'd wanted my first J-custom to be a 7, specifically in the VV finish, and my dream guitar has always been an RG7CST, so I could have the piezo. Problem being, on the uber rare occasion that they come up, they're typically more dinged up than I want them to be, for more $ than I wanted to pay for a dinged up one (no matter how rare they are). Same goes for the RG7CT.

So I'm browsing around the net, and find this sweetie labeled an "Ibanez 7-String Prestige" in excellent condition, for what I'd consider a pretty amazing price. It has regular instead offset dots, and an Edge Pro 7, so I know it's not a CST or CT. I call the shop that has it, and the guy says "oh you mean the "Prestige J-Custom". My head explodes for a second when I realize they don't know the difference, but they confirm it says J-custom on the headstock and Prestige on the case.

They send some pics. She's in nigh flawless condition with the exception of some light pic scratching on the body and headstock. After a couple web searches, I realize what it is and obviously pick it up.

I've had her for a week, and though she doesn't have the crazy ball end fretwork, the frets/neck feel AMAZING. I can now personally attest to the J-Custom hype. Holy cow does she sound and play amazingly. Even with a TZ in the bridge.

Without further adieu, here's my new girlfriend. Forgive the swirlmarks, she's only been rubbed lightly with a cloth. Polishing comes this weekend.

Now on to that new 6 string JC2011BGA I need to pre-order from Rich.... I smell the old wife cooking up napalm already....why doesn't she understand?

Re: NGD: first J-Custom - 2005 RG8127FVV

Thanks all. I'm defiunitely in love.

As for the price; It was listed at $1200 which I'd say isn't a bad deal by any stretch. It doesn't have the COA, and I buy guitars from this place semi-regularly so I used those as bargaining tools. Let's just say I paid less than the list price, and got it for less than alot of used Prestige go for these days.

Alaskabat: the guitar in the background is the oddball RG3120 I posted about a while back. Here's the NGD thread for her:

Re: NGD: first J-Custom - 2005 RG8127FVV

Very Nice score ! congrats!
I love my RG7CT, I almost would prefer the regular dots instead of the offset ones
(I'm simple like that )
enjoy, I had a BK rebel yell installed in the bridge of mine last night I'll let you know how it sounds shortly when I go pick her up.
I love this Vintage Violin finish Ibby uses

Definitely curious to hear how the BK sounds in there. I'm actually having a custom builder install one of his pickups in the bridge next weekend to give it a little more crispness and attack on the low end.

Very nice score man! I always thought even the 8127's had the offset dots as well. Oh well, doesn't take anything away from the guitar.
