NGD J Custom!

My first J-Custom! This guitar is amazing, it had a great setup out of the box, all I had to do was tune it. The workmanship is amazing. I have owned dozens of Ibanez guitars, and this blows them all away. It is better than any Prestige I have ever owned. If you ever get a chance to buy one, you won't be disappointed. Sorry for the lousy pix, this color is very hard to photograph. It is a very deep red.

Re: NGD J Custom!

man, looks gorgeous. i've always wondered how a j custom compares to prestige level quality. i know they are "close" but i haven't ever played a j custom.

Sweetness!!!!

I had a red one but I sold it and got a purple one. Always loved the red though. They are absolutely beautiful guitars through and through.

I was always skeptical about J-Customs being better than the Prestige line. They are close, but unless you get an awesome setup, like what Rich does, there is a quite a difference. Now, I just want Ibanez to make one with a fixed bridge.

Re: NGD J Custom!

Yep, I'm hooked. I don't think I will be anything that is not J-Custom in the future. Unless of course, we get an Ibanez Custom Shop! I know, but we can dream can't we?

Re: NGD J Custom!

Congrats on the new guitar.
+1 on everything you said...
I have the same one but with the H/S/H PUP config.
Got it in January still can't put it down
It's not just the looks, it's not just the awesome feel, the tone smokes.
Here's a pic of mine alongside with my '91 RG750.

Re: NGD J Custom!

I brought on of mine into a shop up here as I was trying a new guitar amp. They had never even seen one and couldn't believe how amazing they looked, sounded and played. They really are the top of the line!

Good to see NGD's blossoming again! Financial crisis must be nearly over! (just kidding here...)

Congrats, man. I own a 8470F and this is the most amazing guitar I ever played (Ok, my ESP M-II is pretty sweet too...)

Re: NGD J Custom!

I forgot to ask if she came with a J-Custom or a Prestige case ?
Maybe you could post a pic with closed case.
Thx

Re: NGD J Custom!

Mine came in a j-custom case. But I've heard of several others who got theirs in prestige cases. Who cares though, the only difference between the two is the writing outside.
