NGD: J-Custom (sexy top :D )

Just got this one! After a huge nightmare with Canada Post this finally arrived.


The J-custom is still the best guitar Ibanez makes as far as I am concerned (although i haven't played the sugi stuff).

The necks on J-customs are usually a bit fatter than the regular ibanez neck carve..which I LOVE as the old school super thin neck carve most ibanez guitars have is just...too much for me.

As you can tell in the pics, the top is gorgeous and craftsmanship is wicked. Soundwise...its perfect as well.

Overall...the J-custom is still one of my all time favorite production guitars.

Awesome guitar, really love that one.

Do you think that most J Customs really have
thicker necks?? Which models??

I have only had this 1680 and an 8527.

The necks feel thicker than a 7620, 7421 (MiJ one...) and old 90's UV.

Not in a bad way though

Yeah in a good way for sure. It depends on model year I suppose.
There are tons of J Customs out there with thin Wizard/Super Wizard necks.
Then you do have some of the others with beefier necks like you say.
The J Custom RG1880 for instance has a much fatter neck than your
average Ibanez RG model,.

No problem! I know how frustrating it is up here in Canadialand where our Ibanez dealers don't tend to stock the really cool high-end stuff!

I went to the local L&M down by Terminal near the skytrain a few days ago and their ibanez stock was not very impressive at all. They have a nice collection of CS shop fenders but the same fenders have been there for at least a few months...

Ah ok cool! Im not too educated about J-customs unfortunately. The J-customs i've tried feel thinner than the most recent UV model (mirror pickguard one) but thicker than early UVs. I think the J-custom is great for guys like me with some mild wrist issues that love the Ibanez vibe but want a slightly thicker neck.

Yeah those models are out there for sure. I know a lot of guys that
hate the really thin Wizard necks and dismiss RG's because of
this but if they were to play something with the older 'J Custom' profile
I think they would be pleasantly surprised.
