VERY nice score! What a beauty! Neck thru JC's are awesome. And off a WTB ad too. I'd say that worked out pretty well, eh? Congrats!

Nice score! I have been wanting a companion to my jcrg4.They really made some nice guitars during that time period.Do the side dots glow in the dark?

Guys thanks for the comments, as always I value your opinions.

@musicdr, yeah that's right you have the JCRG4 model, that's a beauty, better looking guitar as well for me. It would be cool to snag the JCRG2 as well.

@Jimbo72: Group pics incoming. Just about to snap the latest ones I got then I'll post the pics.

Re: NGD Ibanez J Custom RG2-TB (Neck Thru Model)

Nice one! I wasn't aware of that model. Also had no idea how many you had! So is that your total collection or are there others outside the JC's?

Is this list correct?

'97 JCS540-JAPAN
'97 JCRG GEAR-1
'99 JCRG2-TB
'99 JCSPB2-TR
'99 JCRG GOLD-1
'9X JCRG GOLD-2
'9X JCRG METAL-1
'01 JCRG5-VV
'01 JCRG1880-VV
'03 JCRG8670-TB
'03 JCRG8670-TV
'06 JCRG8320-BBK
'0X JCRG8470F-BX

Is that correct? It's kind of funny, my collection almost completely stops at 1993 and yours doesn't start until 1997!

Re: NGD Ibanez J Custom RG2-TB (Neck Thru Model)

Yep man that list is spot on, well done!!! That's just the J Customs dude, I have lots more. I only post J Custom NGD's these days as those really are the keepers, other guitars come and go all the time but I never bother firing those up any more. Don't know how many I have but there's a good few. Space is at a premium for me though, I find myself having to juggle things about a lot. I'm sure you know how it is as you have a great collection of guitars.

Great score Paul!!! I'm very happy for you nice looking top on that one too...you have 2 neck through J-Customs now? Is there much of a tonal difference with the neck through?

Great group shot!!! A truly fantastic collection Paul! congrats!!!

Thanks Ron, much appreciated. Just the one neck thru model at the mo. Think I've owned 16 J Customs in total, had the same model as one of the ones pictured above (can't recall off top of my head..doh!) 2 others which I had for a short time years ago that also got shifted though I wishedI'd kept them. Haven't had an awful amount of time on the new guitar yet due pinched nerves in my neck, picking arm/hands/fingers still pretty numb as a result of it. Will def compare the neck thru to a bolt on soon.
