NGD JCRG2011ZVAT Purple madness!

Here's the new JCRG2011ZVAT I have been waiting for since January!

I usually do not post NGD's (as I am generally just too lazy to take the pics, and too busy playing them to post). I figured I would make an exception here, as this is way too special of an addition to not post it.

I think (Rich, correct me if I'm wrong) that this is the first of the new JCRG's to be delivered? Also possible the other guys who have been waiting and just had them delivered are just too busy playing to post!

Anyway, here are just a couple of shots - plus, as promised to Alaskabat, a group shot of my purple guitars together. The wall shot absolutely did NOT capture the true color of any of my purple guitars. The overall group shots seemed to have better lighting and truer color.













I will try to get off my butt and post some follow up info as far as a review of the JC, but may spend the weekend locked away - with bloody, purple fingers.

Re: NGD JCRG2011ZVAT Purple madness!

I see some at least 2 Gio's in there.

Why buy the cheaper guitars when you have SO MANY amazing ones?
I mean, i understand that its fun to mod cheaper guitars but its always good to start with something decent.

Or did you have the Gio's first then start your collection?

but beautiful stuff!!! and i count 3 tight end bridge's. i f**king love that thing

All,
Thanks for the positive comments. The J Custom is absolutely wonderful to play, and surpassed my expectations for fit and finish and overall quality. If I get off my butt, I will try to post a full review soon.

That’s a RGR421EXFM. Decent overall. I have been happy with the feel and playability of this guitar. I also dig the deep candy purple and the reverse headstock. It was a custom order that worked out great.

This 421 is the bookend match to the real 1421F you see there on the left. This is the only purple 1421 in existence! One of my absolute prized guitars! Phenomenal player as well.

Yep. That’s serial #8 of the original EP7’s. Great tone and setup.

That’s very observant.

Yes, there are 2 GIO’s in there – leaning up against the corners of my Jem wall.

The reason I have them is because I have three young sons, and until Ibanez decides to make “Prestige” series Mikro’s, my kids will have to learn on the available GIO’s.

They are not bad for what they are, can be set up pretty well and sound ok. And the size (3/4 scale) makes them ideal student guitars for little players. They also let my kids feel like they are part of the “action” getting to play little guy RG’s.

I second that. Absolutely love the Tight End. I am a fixie at heart, and these fill the bill.

As stated above, I do love the fixed bridge guitars and jumped at the chance to own a fixed Jem when they first came out. Then loved it so much, I bought a second. Actually going to have the second EAFX custom painted a brilliant sparkle purple! Will keep you posted on what has become the very slow process of getting this custom Jem going.
