NGD: J-Custom 8527VV!!!

Just picked this one up! The pickups have been swapped out for D-activators which sound really really good IMO, I like them more than some Bareknuckle stuff I've tried.

Build quality is really good as expected from a J-Custom, much better than my 2127z was. This is probably one of my favorite production guitars of all time, and I have owned a ton of guitars I am LOVING the colour on this one as well.

Here are some bad pictures I took right after getting it, I just wiped the top down, waxed it and cleaned the guitar up and it looks WAY better than in these pictures, oh well!

I like it! One of the nicest looking traditional color flamed super strats I have ever seen. It, to me, sits right there nicely with some historical Les Pauls it terms of classic look, but of course this breaths a bit more fire. Just love it.

Stealth, you son of a... by far, my absolute favorite Ibanez.

No, seriously though, major grats. Is it as minty as it looks? If you ever decide to sell it, I'll personally drive up there to pick it up

Very nice. I like the inset knobs. The Vintage Violin finish is at the top of my want list. It just screams "class". Congrats.

Oh sweet! Its cool someone else in Canada has one. We honestly dont tend to get too many cool guitars up north here. I had never even seen a J-Custom in real life before I bought this one.

Yup! I was GAS'ing for an LP but dont get along with ToMs so this is close enough. Similar wood combo and finish..plus its actually playable

It is fairly minty, its weird though...the body/neck etc seem almost flawless besides the usual small nicks/scratches but the bridge has some of the black wearing off and the finish on the tuners is relatively worn. I will probably be selling this in the next week or so as I have a Daemoness to pay for lol

Are you serious!? Because I was serious too. Okay, maybe not about the driving part, but I'd definitely pay shipping+ to get that baby down here

Re: NGD: J-Custom 8527VV!!!

stunningly beautiful guitar - congrats man! Can I ask where you got it? I've never seen a J-Custom in real life since none of the music stores up here ever get them in... at least I've never seen one in all my years of frequenting the music stores in the Vancouver area...it is sooooo nice - you should keep it

You are more than welcome to come and try it out! I might have to be in north van soonish anyways to drop a guitar off with a tech up there so I can meet you somewhere if you want to try it out? Its a fun guitar for sure! And yeah I had NEVER seen a J-Custom in person either before.
