Gorgeous guitar!
I was hoping this would come to the USA market.
Instead we got the very ugly RG421 version of it. :P

The RG421 was ok. We just recently got that and the S model in at the local store i used to work at. Its actually a pretty good guitar apart from it looking a tad bit dull on the body side of things

Update:

Slap on a Dimarzio Paf Pro in the neck and D-Activator in the bridge. Loving the D-Activator so far. kinda reminds me of my Black Winters. Loving the note seperation. Sorry for the lousy pic. Too lazy to grab my camera so i use a potato instead.

Re: NGD Ibanez RG721CNF

Isn't the output difference between the D Activator and the PAf pro a little bit too much?

It seems ok to me though.. It's not as bad as my other guitar which have a Jazz in the neck and a Black Winter in the bridge. The only problem i have with the Jazz is yes. the output is a bit too low.. probly needs like a 10-20% increase. This one however.. the neck pickup still sings.. So it's all good!

If it ever became an issue, grab an IBZ/USA F4 for the neck. It's a hotter PAF Pro If you have someone you trust in the US, use Dimarzio's custom shop to order one. I did

Congrats man! A fantastic Ibanez modell, looks amazing.

I have gotten me 2 of those, one stock and one custom.
Those premiums are great stuff.

Love mine, and I have thought about swapping pups, but I'm not sure what to get?!? Something warm and crunchy would be nice!

AT-1 man. That thing is exactly what you're looking for I think for the bridge. Also since you're in the U.S., email dimarzio and order an IBZ/USA F4 through their custom shop. 2 Warm pups that dont lose clarity at high gain
