NGD IBANEZ JCRG5-VV

Got my new Ibanez J Custom RG5-VV (JCRG5-VV) today. This guitar was bought from Jemsite member WMerkert who was great to deal with so a big thanks to him!!!! This is a 2001 J Custom, Mahogany body, Lo Pro Edge, Ebony Fingerboard, DiMarzio's are Tone Zone, Blue Velvet and Air Norton. Great playing and sounding guitar.

That's a sexy beast for sure. With the ebony fretboard too!

I would do nasty disgusting things to that guitar.

Re: NGD IBANEZ JCRG5-VV

Guys thanks so much!!! Coming from genuine Ibanez guys with unreal (I am humble) collections means a lot!!! Thanks to Wolfgang as well for selling me the geeetar, been after one of those for a while.

I now have 5 J Customs (Used to have 2 others many moons ago but sold 'em, bad move!!) and this one ranks up with the best. I have loads of other guitars but the JC's are that bit special to me. I might fire up a group shot if I get a chance. Thanks again!!!

Beautiful! Being a JC owner, I can't see myself buying a Jem or JS.

Are you replacing the pickups?

Thanks for the great comments guys!! Melek, I'll be keeping the pickups stock as I like that combo in my J Customs. Which model/models of J Custom do you own?? Cheers!

An 8570BX, thinking about ordering a PA soon. It sounds muddy through the TriAxis, so I'm having both humbuckers replaced with Evolutions.

Cheers!

Love the guitar. A JC with an ebony board and Tree of Life inlay is one of the few guitars that I really feel is missing from my collection.
