Talking NGD! Ibanez J-Custom RG2011Z Blue Zircon

It has finally arrived














Bought it through Ibanezrules.com (Thanks Rich!!!). The setup out of the box was PERFECT. The site owner himself does the setups, and he does it ridiculously well, better than any setups Iíve ever had. I advise anyone who wants to grab an Ibanez guitar to buy it through there.

The Edge-Zero bridge works great, itís sturdy and when the nuts are locked in it stays solidly in tune. The thumbwheel spring adjustment in the back is very convenient, no more having to open it up and use screwdrivers. Neck is pretty thin and fast, just the way I like it.

Flamed maple top looks stunning, and has areas that disappear at certain angles and appear at others. The craftsmanship is top notch. The tree of life inlays are always great eyecandy!

As far as tone goes, this guitar is my all-around guitar. My 8420ZE has EMGs and will handle anything heavy. With the Air Norton/True Velvet/Tone Zone pickups, this one will cover everything else. In short, this is one of the best guitars Iíve ever played and I'm extremely happy with my purchase!

Here is a tone test video I hastily made, so please excuse the sloppy play: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgT2ghxHgzA&hd=1

Beautiful guitar! That bit of MOP is my favorite clean tone test piece, and that guitar sounds great for it. Happy NGD!

Sweet guitar! Yes, we all know of Rich--he's not only a vendor here, but a very active member. We always steer potential buyers to Rich. He's simply the best!
