NGD: Ibanez Prestige RG2771FM-VV Hardtail Model

Was in the market for a good hardtail Ibby lately so when
this popped up for sale I had to go for it. A big thanks
to Gary (Jemsite ID: the.godfather) for selling me the
guitar. Great guy to deal with!!



2004 Japanese domestic market only model.
Pretty rare guitar if truth be told, you don't
come across these all that often.



Mahogany body, Wizard neck, Gotoh bridge.
I'll probably drop a set of white DiMarzio's
or BKP's in this at some point soon.



PICS!!!!!

Nice one, Paul! I wish they sold some MIJ offset dot models in the US.

Thanks Jesse! Yeah know where you're coming from
on that man but it seems like Japan gets all the really
cool models (stating the bleeding obvious I know).

These are damn good guitars, along with the RGA121/321
they really punch above their weight and slay a lot of higher
end models.

I'm going through a 'Tis the Season To Hate Floating Bridges'
stage at the mo. I've two custom builds ordered and currently
spec'ing 2 more out. All will be hardtails, probably Schaller Hannes
bridges on all 4.

Beautiful guitar Paul!!! A little something to hold you over until the Daemoness guitars are ready eh ;o) Looks like you're getting some sunny weather too, which is good to see Really nice top and it looks to be in minty fresh shape as well. Congratulations!!!

I am weak Ron, lol!!! This is the 6th guitar I've bought that I shouldn't have. I have the 2 Daemoness builds covered....I think.....so now it's duck season again. But I'm gonna order 2 more I reckon.

That's beautiful Paul. What a nice top for a 2xxx. Probably the nicest I've seen.

I'd love to see a black and gold Shaller Hannes on this one, but I don't know if the footprint is big enough to cover the mounting holes for the original.

Great NGD man. It's nice to see guys with some of the most high dollar Ibby's made still showing love for these "layman's" guitars.

Cheers Ryc. Yeah I'm looking to buy some more hardtail Ibanez. I bought an RGA121 recently, just loved the simplicity of it, great playing guitar and low maintenance so that got me looking at more fixed bridge models. That Schaller Hannes you mentioned is a great bridge.

That's a VLF finish....Violin Flat. I'd highly recommend those RGA121's, amazing guitars for the price, nothing better in that price range, they are now in high demand actually. I'm on the lookout for both an RGA121 and an RGA321 at the minute.
